Data Security

Security is important to any person who wants their data to remain confidential. Sharp is a leader in addressing security in digital imaging and received the first Common Criteria Validation for an MFP in 2001.

Sharp today still remains a highly rated company 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, which Sharp pioneered and for which it continues to set the benchmark.

Today's copiers are advanced servers on your network that can create significant risks to you and your business. Printed, copied, and scanned documents are stored on the copier hard drive and may be accessed by others through simple techniques.
