IoT security is only as strong as its weakest link. For some businesses this may be the networked multifunction printer (MFP), which remains integral to the workplace. MFPs are perhaps one of the more sophisticated IoT devices that a business owns, operating as a document processing hub with scan, print, copy and email functionality. Like any other networked device MFPs are critical endpoints, which must be safeguarded and protected against both internal and external threats.
