Require Authentication Prior to Retrieving a Printout

Users can only retrieve their printouts after authentication with a smartphone or tablet. Users can release print jobs at any printer. This policy does not require additional authentication devices like an RFID reader. A web-based, pull-printing approval interface can be integrated with MFP devices.

Even in today's digital world, more than three-quarters (76 percent) of organizations indicate that printing is critical or important to their business activities. A whopping 70 percent of businesses admit to experiencing one or more print-related data breaches and violations to data protection legislation, which could lead to fines of up to $850,000. So why have less than 25 percent of businesses implemented secure printing initiatives?

In some cases, companies may not be aware of print-related security risks and have found security assessments for printers to be a challenge. Others may lack the budget or knowledge to implement a policy.

In this slideshow, Fasoo, a data and software security company, offers five essential components for an enterprise's print security strategy. Having a print security plan in place will minimize the risks of paper-based data breaches with the ability to detect sensitive information and restrict printing, securing printouts by mandating verification. Besides security risks, policies will provide management with a way to control printing devices overall with the result of reducing printing, paper and toner costs due to the print quota system features.
