Security for Private Sector and Corporate Organizations

Sharp MFPs provide significant and robust control over information access, transmission and tracking to facilitate compliance with stringent mandates. This will mitigate risk and help avoid any penalties or lawsuits for noncompliance. By implementing the Sharp Security Suite, Sharp MFPs can help banks and investment institutions meet the privacy requirements of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley (GLB) Act. Insurance and healthcare providers can maintain Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance with confidence. Businesses across all industries will benefit from the strict controls over financial information required under the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act.

Security for Public Sector and Government Organizations

Threats to government infrastructure are rapidly growing and the number of attacks continue to rise. On one hand, information sharing is critical for the efficiency of these organizations. On the other hand, security management is becoming more challenging for IT managers. Sharp can help your organization meet US government information security requirements through ISO 15408/Common Criteria certifications or features such as Common Access Card (CAC)/ Personal Identity Verification (PIV) authentication to maintain security clearance to protect classified data.

Common Criteria (CC) and ISO 15408

ISO 15408 (International Standard Organization 15408) refers to a set of evaluation standards for security products and systems established by the Common Criteria program. It provides a high level of confidence in the security functions of the products evaluated.


IPv6 is the secure expansion of the IPv4 protocol. To comply with Federal Government and Department of Defense requirements to support the transition to IPv6, most Sharp MFPs support the IPv6/IPsec protocols.

CAC/PIV Card Support

Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD)-12 sets in place a program requiring positive ID for federal government organizations. Sharp MFPs with CAC or PIV cards help control access to government network resources. Select Sharp MFPs with scanning and network capabilities support government ID security requirements through embedded and external options, supporting secure network access with FIPS-201 compliant cards.
