Document Solutions - PaperCut MF

PaperCut MF extends the features of PaperCut NG using embedded software and hardware integration to provide full MFP control.

Today’s multi-function devices (MFPs) and copiers are smarter. They have touch screens and the ability to run embedded software directly on the device itself. This new technology has allowed us to bring our popular print management software into the MFP space to track off-the-glass usage – copy, fax and scan.

Embedded Software For printing PaperCut authenticates and tracks print jobs at the server layer before they pass to the MFP. To track off-the-glass device usage such as copying usage the authentication and tracking step needs to be done on the device itself. Where possible this is accomplished using embedded software. The embedded software runs on the MFP and works with the PaperCut Server to bring the same experience offered with printing to direct device usage. Embedded solutions also offer other service such as the ability for users to self-associate a new swipe card with their account and check their account balance.

Today’s networked office equipment retains document data that can accidentally or maliciously disclose confidential document data, which could seriously impact your business.

To mitigate this threat, Sharp offers a scalable suite of security solutions geared toward preserving the confidentiality of your digital document data.

The optional Data Security Kit (DSK) helps protect and control major MFP systems and subsystems (print, copy, scan, fax jobs, network settings, operating system, memory components, local user interface, engine and job controller). The DSK uses the 128/256 bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm on all data before it is written to RAM or Flash memory and the hard disk. The DSK also provides overwriting routines for deleted data, to ensure all information is virtually irretrievable by unauthorized users.

Sharp was the first to address security in digital imaging and received the first Common Criteria Validation for an MFP in 2001. Even today, Sharp remains the highest rated company for validated MFP products, and is regarded as one of the industry’s greatest security innovators. Businesses and government agencies worldwide have come to depend on this level of assurance that Sharp pioneered and for which it continues to set the benchmark.
