Access Control Security

Access Control Security

Sharp MFPs offer several ways to authenticate and limit users' access to a device and its functionality. These include account codes, login credentials (using Active Directory or a local user list), and the ability to limit user capabilities with group/feature authorization lists. All user credentials are transferred using a proven combination of Kerberos, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or Digest-MD5 encryption to help avoid interception.

  • User authentication (device local address book/LDAP)
  • User authentication (global address book)
  • Group authorization
  • Page limit control
  • Secured admin access to device home page
  • Admin and user password management
  • User authority setting
  • Management of currently logged in users
  • USB card reader support
  • CAC/PIV authentication capability**
  • Scan-to-home and Scan-to-me
  • Restrict list printing**
  • Disable destination selection
  • Disable address book registration
  • Receipt rejection from specified sender(s)

Data And Information Security

Standard MFP security coupled with the optional Data Security Kit (DSK) protects and controls the major MFP systems and subsystems (print, copy, scan, fax jobs, network settings, memory components, local user interface). The Sharp data encryption method uses the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm 256*-bit on all data before it is written to RAM and the hard disk drive. It also provides overwriting routines for deleted data to ensure that all information is virtually irretrievable by unauthorized users.

  • Data overwrite (auto)
  • Data overwrite (manual)**
  • Data overwrite (at power up)**
  • Up to 7-times data overwrite
  • 256*-bit AES data encryption
  • End-Of-Lease feature

Data and Information Security

Newtork Security

Network Security

Sharp MFPs feature an intelligent network interface that can limit access to specific computers on a network by IP or MAC address, and selectively enable or disable any protocol or service port on each device. All communications to and from the MFP can utilize SSL for secure transmission over the network, and most devices also support SMB, IPv6, IPsec, 802.1x and SNMPv3.

  • SSL/TLS encryption
  • Security policy management (HASH level setting)
  • SNMPv3 support
  • Kerberos support
  • SNMP community name support
  • IPv6 and IPsec
  • Device certificates
  • IP address filtering
  • MAC address filtering
  • Port control
  • IEEE802.1X™ authentication

Fax Security

The architecture of Sharp MFPs provides a logical separation between the fax telephone line and LAN. It is, therefore, virtually impossible for attackers to gain access to the internal systems of the MFP or the local network. Additional security features are incorporated such as disabling broadcasting, allowing and rejecting reception from specific numbers, user authentication and more.

  • Confidential fax
  • Segregated fax line from network connection
  • Prevention of junk fax

Audit Trail Security

Audit Trail Security

Sharp’s granular audit trail and job log feature provides comprehensive auditing of all user activity. Certain federal regulations parameters, such as “to”, “from”, “when” and “file name” can be logged, reviewed and archived for conformance. In addition, various centralized audit trail solutions are available through Sharp OSA Partner Program members.

  • Job log and usage tracking
  • Reporting and data export in .csv and .xml
  • Advanced audit trail applications from our Partner Program Members

Document Security

Protection of sensitive documents can be assured through Sharp encrypted Adobe PDF files for scanning and printing, or access control and encryption using SSL protocols for scanning, printing, E-mail and setup.

  • Secure print release with a PIN number
  • Encrypted PDF
  • Encrypted PDF lockout
  • Tracking information print
  • Hidden pattern print and detection**
  • Print release using Sharp OSA-enabled applications (MX-SW100 or applications from our Partner Program members)
  • Job status display only for logged on user
  • Secure pull print FTP/SMB
