Quocirca research highlights print second only to cloud as top IT security concerns
Brno, Czech Republic and Dallas, Texas – Y Soft® Corporation, a leading enterprise office solution provider today announced that YSoft SafeQ has been recognized as having strong print services security in the latest research report from Quocirca. Y Soft is offering a copy of the Quocirca report, Global Print Security Landscape, 2019, to its newsletter subscribers.
The Quocirca report, which surveyed 250 enterprises in the UK, France, Germany and the US, with an equal mix of large and small businesses, found that print is still a significant part of their business (87%) and that use of MPS and print management leads to improved print security.
Additional highlights included:
· Print is considered a top security risk (66%), second only to cloud-based services (69%)
· Spend on print security is increasing (77%) and comprises 11% of total IT security spending
· Data breaches related to print are frequent (11%) and lead to data loss (59%) costing, on average, over $410,000 annually
· While most organizations are concerned about malware attacks (70%), actual incidents are from accidental actions of internal users (32%), the highest reported factor
“Print and scan workflows play an important part of an organization’s digital transformation productivity goals and do not need to be at the expense of print services security,” said Václav Muchna, Y Soft CEO and co-founder. “YSoft SafeQ’s strong security posture is a result of the investment we made in building YSoft SafeQ 6 from the ground up with security in mind.”
Y Soft is offering a complimentary copy of the Quocirca report to its newsletter subscribers. The report contains additional high-level findings and recommendations for IT decision makers.
“With a continued reliance on print, organizations are increasingly concerned about print security risks. Those using print management solutions and services are most likely to have a stronger maturity when it comes to addressing vulnerabilities. With the print infrastructure becoming more diverse, an integrated approach to secure print management that ensures collaboration between the ISV, manufacturer and customer, as offered by Y Soft, is imperative in the evolving print security threat landscape,” said Louella Fernandes, Director, Quocirca.
YSoft SafeQ is designed as a workflow solutions platform. Today, the platform pillars are print management, document capture and 3D print management. The YSoft SafeQ platform software suites or modules are offered as a perpetual license or as a flexible subscription service and can be deployed on premise or in the cloud.
