Printer manufacturer Lexmark has unveiled an authentication system for laser multifunction products (MFPs) in response to the stringent security standards of the US Federal government.
The technology gives government agencies an option for enhanced network security protection for MFPs.
The system locks the devices so that users cannot copy, fax, scan, print or initiate workflow processes from the device without first inserting a common access card and obtaining authentication.
Common access cards are issued to US Department of Defense employees and are used to verify identity and security classifications.
Although presently targeted at the US government, Lexmark said that the technology can be adapted for other agencies as a common identification standard for all federal employees.
