In today’s digital world, businesses face numerous challenges in securing their data and maintaining a strong infrastructure. With the rise of cyber threats and the increasing reliance on technology, companies must adopt innovative approaches to safeguard their print environments. In this blog, we explore the concept of Zero Trust and how Aurora is revolutionising print infrastructure security.
Zero Trust is a security framework that challenges the traditional perimeter based security model. Instead of assuming trust based on network location, Zero Trust operates on the principle of “never trust, always verify.” It entails continuously authenticating and authorising every access request, regardless of whether it originates from within or outside the network perimeter. By adopting a Zero Trust approach, organisations can establish granular control over their print infrastructure, reducing the risk of unauthorised access and data breaches.
At Aurora, we recognise the vital role that print infrastructure plays in an organisation’s security. As a trusted provider of Print Management solutions, our software allows organisations to easily integrate Zero Trust principles into our range of services, aiming to transform the way businesses manage their print environments.
With Zero Trust, unauthorised access to print devices and sensitive documents is denied, by implementing multi-factor authentication, user-specific access controls and secure document release solutions. This ensures that only authorised personnel can print, scan, or access confidential information. By implementing these measures, organisations can significantly reduce the risk of data leaks and unauthorised document handling. By also implementing VPNs or utilising secure network protocols, organisations can establish encrypted connections between print devices and authorised users, isolating print devices from the main network.
Our commitment to security goes beyond initial implementation. We provide robust monitoring and analytics capabilities that enable proactive threat detection and response. By leveraging advanced tools and technologies, businesses can monitor print infrastructure, identifying anomalies and potential security breaches.
In an era of evolving cyber threats, adopting a Zero Trust approach to print infrastructure security is imperative. With our expertise in Print Management solutions, we’ve embraced this to help businesses transform their print environments into fortified fortresses. By providing solutions to access management, network segmentation and continuous monitoring, we empower organisations to safeguard their sensitive data and prevent costly data breaches.
