Printer Security

Deloitte report on printer security

  • Estimates a 15% increase in sales of desktop printer/MFPs in 2020 due to increase in employees working from home and needing device to complete work
    • Many retail stores seeing massive increases in sales
    • Depletion of inventory of devices
    • 62% of US households had a printer/MFP before COVID-19 pandemic, so actual number is now much higher
  • Remote workers often do not use strong passwords
  • Commonly do not have latest firmware on device
  • Hackers could use devices to laterally move into company’s virtual private network, and then into corporate network
  • Printer/MFPs are many times overlooked when companies create security policies
