Print data is very vulnerable to hacking and misuse :
Print data travels from node to printer in an unencrypted form; hence it can
be easily tampered with, or, copied and reproduced later.
When you have common devices on the network, it is very easy for anyone else
in the organization to see your printed jobs lying on the printer leading to
potential misuse of the information.
KAPS can provide a solution called Securejet to secure print
data so that :
Print data from the node to the printer travels in a totally encrypted
manner using highly sophisticated encryption mechanisms. This ensures total
electronic security of the print data stream
Print data can reside securely on a hard disk in a printer until the user
who issued the job reaches it. On identifying himself at the front panel,
the printer can print all the jobs waiting for the user. Various different
methods of identification are possible, such as PIN number, Proximity Badges
, Swipe Cards, Smart Cards, Biometric etc.
Print data can also be made to reside securely on print servers in an
organization. The user can then walk up to ANY printer on the network,
identify himself and retrieve his jobs.
A user can also securely send print jobs for other users on the network. The
user who is supposed to receive the printed document can retrieve it from
the hard disk at his convenience. In essence, this is similar to email but
in printed form.
Any organization which implements SecureJet automatically benefits from
reduction in wastage of print documents. SecureJet can be programmed to:
Print only when a user identifies himself at the printer's front panel
To automatically delete from memory any print jobs not claimed within a
specified number of days.
This results in considerable reduction in wastage and allows the solution to pay
for itself in a short period of time.
