In the fast-paced digital era, cybersecurity has become more critical than ever. Recent events have highlighted the vulnerability of all businesses everywhere to cyber threats, often resulting in creating huge downtime, costs, and financial losses. The stark reality is that it’s not a matter of if cybercriminals will infiltrate your system, but when.

Gone are the days when your generic security software was sufficient protection. Cybercrime statistics paint a concerning picture: 84% of organizations fall victim to phishing, and 59% are targeted by ransomware. Every month witnesses the creation of 1.5 million new phishing websites.

The alarming trend is that 75% of ransomware is designed not only to encrypt your primary data but also to target your backup, leaving businesses in a vulnerable position. Cybercrime is no longer a fringe issue. It’s projected to reach a staggering $10.5 trillion by 2025, making it the third-largest economy if considered on its own.

Your business does not have to be a victim of a ransomware attack. The evolving landscape of cyber threats demands a multi-layered approach to security. To ensure complete security coverage for your print and document environments, Toshiba’s SecureMFP approach looks holistically at your environment, including products, processes, and people. Our Toshiba experts can guide you through the process.

The secret to security is making sure the right people have access to the right data as well as the right device capabilities. Toshiba achieves this by restricting, managing, and monitoring access. Our multi-factor authentication along with roles-based access control features ensure that only authorized individuals or sites can access the device physically or digitally; you can even limit access at the feature-level so your security policies can be very granular and customized.

Along with restrictions comes the task of managing those boundaries. Toshiba makes it easy with authorizations that can be managed from a centralized active directory so you can apply consistent role-based security rules across the board.

And lastly, Toshiba offers comprehensive monitoring through steps such as activity logs, real-time notifications and shareable alerts. Toshiba devices also support biometric authentication which adds another layer of access security.

The key takeaway is clear: in the face of escalating cyber threats, proactive cybersecurity measures are not just a necessity but a business imperative. That’s why you need a trusted partner who makes securing your MFP as simple and straightforward as possible. Toshiba understands computers, networks and cloud better than any other MFP manufacturer.
