For many organisations, their connected Internet of Things (IoT) endpoints have grown exponentially, meaning that their cyber-attack surface area has increased. These include new breed of smart printers and multifunction printers (MFPs) as well as legacy machines. These print devices can provide an open door to corporate networks and businesses must take a proactive approach. By taking steps to analyse the potential vulnerabilities of print environments, risks to business can be identified and mitigated without compromising productivity. Global Print Security 2019 shows that 66% of businesses rank print in top 5 security concerns worldwide.

Print-related breaches are costing an average of £313,000 per year, with 60% of organisations experiencing at least one print-related data loss in the past 12 months. Despite a reported 11% of all security incidents being related to print infrastructure, the research found that attempts to mitigate print risks lack maturity. Only 27% of businesses achieve print security leader status in Quocirca’s Print Security Maturity Index.
