i-Sat Improves Security9 Jan, 2015
Some major headlines this past year were based on hacking attacks. Many retail stores, and even Sony were targets of hacking attacks. Security is becoming a serious and very important issue. Improving security is a foremost concern of many organizations. Connecting to ERP, EMR and other core business systems for printing in a distributed environment (branches, labs, stores, and consultants) can be a potential vulnerability. Printing in this environment is a legitimate security concern.
How is a system vulnerable in distributed print environment?
- Remote sites/users are provided access to back-end systems like ERP and EMR systems
- Access to non-organic employees like doc offices, labs, contractors, retail employees
- No control over systems used at remote locations – cannot verify virus and sw
- Access to back-end systems for print can provide way for hackers and virus in back-end system
- Do not allow access to core systems from non-organic employees or remote locations
- Export all print to an independent Print System that is in the ‘glass house’ – under strict controls and safe
- Remote users only get access to the IPS not the core back-end systems
- Standardize the remote system with a standard safe sw called i-Sat
- IPS only takes calls from i-Sat – no one else – no access to the core systems
- Secure connection via web services and the internet – no network access
- Only ‘push’ from IPS when known i-Sat user is authenticated
- Compress and encrypt data Configure the system to be completely
With i-Sat implementations:
- No access ever to back-end system
- End users are authenticated
- Completely enclosed and safe system
