Device Security

With Ricoh, security comes as standard, and is included in every product and service by design. Our workplace portfolio covers every aspect of the digital workplace. We place security at the heart of all our technology, consultancy and support services and offer a range of solutions from secure printing for sensitive documents through to safe storage and data management. Ricoh’s devices run on our proprietary operating system and user interface, a core component of our security defense. With a modified kernel, no unnecessary modules and digital signage, only Ricoh approved applications can run on our devices.

The Ricoh Philosophy - Security is in our DNA

Ricoh takes a layered approach to device security. Our approach starts with each device being independently tested and verified against the IEEE or ISO 2600.2 standard.

Data storage and availability

Information security management is multifaceted and includes everything from capturing, storing and permissions management to output, distribution and scheduled destruction. If it is lost or tampered with, it can directly threaten the company’s reputation and commercial advantage, as well as the privacy and trust of employees and customers. Businesses need to ensure both the confidentiality of information, so that it cannot be stolen or leaked, and its integrity, so that it cannot be changed.

Added to this, mobile working is increasingly prevalent and information needs to be protected in transit. Additional security measures need to be in place to accommodate file sharing from any location. Information needs to be stored securely and access needs to controlled and monitored.

Device and user management

One of the biggest security threats to a business is its people. Hard copy documentation presents a significant business risk both in terms of theft and employee negligence and many organisations lack the necessary security measures to prevent unauthorised output of confidential documents. In addition, many organisations are increasingly making use of free file transfer or storage solutions which can pose a significant data security risk where Trojans and other viruses have been known to piggyback on files shared through free services.

In addition, many hardware devices are now information terminals that can act as vulnerable gateways to business information. Businesses must be as cognisant of securing devices like printers, copiers and presentation equipment as they are of the more commonly suspected laptops and servers.

How Ricoh can help
