Despite the fact that we live in a digital age, the promise of the “paperless office” has never materialized; offices are still printing, copying and faxing documents on a daily basis. In fact, many companies have document devices from a variety of manufacturers scattered across desktops and hallways throughout the enterprise. In some cases, there’s even a device for every employee and each device may have different requirements for services and supplies. Not only is this an impediment to maximum efficiency, it increases a business’ impact on the environment.(Read Full Article)
A good way for MSPs to turbocharge their practices is by introducing security as an attached sale to other products and services that they’re already selling.
You’ve heard the phrase: The technology just sells itself.
With managed security services, however, it takes a lot more than that. It takes strategic marketing and branding. It takes time, effort and patience to ramp up offerings and acquire a customer base that will reduce total cost of ownership and generate a sustainable and profitable revenue stream. And it often takes a lot of creativity.(Read Full Article)
Printers, routers, IP cameras, sensors and other Internet-connected devices are increasingly used to launch large distributed denial of service attacks, security firm Prolexic warned in a report this week.
According to Prolexic, there are several security problems with SNMP. Some versions of the protocol transmit data in human readable form and are therefore vulnerable to interception and data modification attacks. The protocol is also vulnerable to IP spoofing because the origin of transmission of an SNMP request cannot be verified. All versions of SNMP are also vulnerable to "brute force" attacks, the company said.

The statistics are staggering: Last year, Symantec blocked more than 5.5 billion malware attacks, an 81% increase over 2010, and reported a 35% increase in Web-based attacks and a 41% increase in new malware variants. Those findings, documented in the company's latest annual "Internet Security Threat Report," might cause IT leaders to wonder if they're doing everything possible to protect their organizations.
And well they should. Security folks, in struggling to establish policies and procedures that are both effective and easy to implement, often forget a crucial step, experts say: communicating their security goals effectively, so that ...(Read Full Article)
Failure to address document security challenges exposes European financial services firms to risk, according to Ricoh study
A study commissioned by Ricoh Europe shows that the financial services sector, which has traditionally relied on manual and paper based approaches to processing information, is under increasing pressure to securely manage growing amounts of information.
The study also shows that:
- Less than half (47%) in the financial services sector think their document security is better than in 2009
- More than a quarter (25%) think it’s worse
- Only a third are able to full audit access to documents, with the majority therefore lacking control over who might be accessing potentially sensitive information
- Only a small proportion have overcome the ...
