IDC Infobrief - Print Security Becomes Increasingly Critical with the Rise of a Work-From-Home Workforce

IDC has observed a notable difference in the level of priority placed on IT security versus print/document security. IDC’s research shows that organizations continue to (falsely) assume that the print environment is adequately protected by network security measures. But security around the network perimeter is crumbling, and every device connected to the network is now a standalone endpoint security risk — printers and MFPs included.

The majority believes that existing security measures are fine or even too extreme and sacrifice productivity. Most organization fail to recognize that printers too are a target for cyberattacks.
