||Keep you Business Information Safe and Secure1|
- Sharp offers several layers of network, device, and data security to help protect your greatest asset: your information. These scalable security offerings are designed to help offices meet regulatory requirements, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Gramm Leach Bliley Act (GLB).
- Secure the device: When enabled through the key operator’s programs, the auditing mode built into the AR-M355U requires users to enter a five digit PIN code in order to gain access to the operation panel of the machine. This feature can also restrict users from printing (standard).
- Secure the output: To protect your customer’s printed documents from unauthorized viewing, the AR-M355U model offer a confidential printing feature, which requires users to enter a PIN code at the machine in order to print their queued document (requires optional PCL6 network printing system).
- Secure network access: To protect your customer’s network from unauthorized E-mail communication, the AR-M355U model supports user authentication, which requires users to login to the machine before performing any network scanning operations (requires PCL6 network printing system + network scanning kit).
- Secure network visibility: To restrict access to the AR-M355U model on your customer’s network, the advanced home page allows administrators to setup IP filtering, MAC address filtering, as well as advanced protocol filtering, all of which can be used to restrict network access to the device (requires PCL6 network printing system).
- Secure the data: With the available data security kit, users can encrypt data in memory that is used for copying, scanning, printing and faxing with 128-bit encryption. Additionally, the data security kit can erase the hard disk memory in the AR-M355U by overwriting the encrypted data up to seven times, offering an unprecedented level of assurance (available early 2005).
