Data privacy can often be a huge problem. When people think of security breaches in their systems, they mostly think about hackers. Businesses, schools, law firms, health care clinics, and hospitals, among many others spend time and money making sure they have super security within their systems building firewalls or spending on intrusion detection systems.
While checking these things and spending time on them is important, this necessity to try and keep others out, makes you forget about the ones who are already in. By this I mean, those who work in these buildings and print. Luckily, PaperCut MF has great security features that can help you prevent data breaches and leaks when it comes to printing.
