Enterprise Guide to Securing Printers

EpsonEpsonNovember 29, 2018

The Enterprise Guide to Securing Printers is intended to raise awareness of security issues related to modern business printers and common printing practices, as well as considerations for improving enterprise printer security.

If you’re tasked with buying, installing, or securing printers in enterprise networks, this guide refrains from highly technical information and focuses on high-level security concepts rather than how-to implementation.

It’s a great starting place for evaluating security issues, but make sure to refer to product documentation for detailed instructions. While many recommendations apply to printer settings, some measures must be implemented via other devices (e.g., network routers).
