Security

Be confident your business information & files are secure

When connecting digital devices to your network, there should be no question that system resources and data are protected from disruptive forces inside and outside your organization.

This enables IT management to embrace products that would otherwise pose a security risk, while providing employees with high-performance equipment that streamlines workflow, protects vital business interests, and ensures peace of mind.

Hardware Security

Recent media reports have brought attention to security threats related to copiers and multifunctional devices. The essence of this information exposes the fact that today's document output products are indeed sophisticated devices, with the capability of storing information to the unit's hard disk drive.

Bringing awareness and providing reassurance to our customers about this potential area of vulnerability is a priority within our organization. All of the products placed by Meridian meet multiple national and international security standards. Additionally, we've successfully passed rigid security regulations to accomplish implementation for nationwide deployments of such devices.

There are several methods to scrub, wipe or delete data from hard drives.

Devices may be configured with removable hard disk drives that remain the property of the customer at the conclusion of the equipment lease or decommission. Devices have embedded data overwrite capabilities, too.

These reports are not exposing a device's inability to purge information, as most—if not all—of the products on the market are subject to minimum requirements, including features to eliminate such security concerns. This news should increase the awareness that certain measures may need to be taken to confirm that confidential information remains confidential.

Meridian is capable of handling any hard drive issues you have in regards to your multifunction printer or copier.

We can replace the existing hard drive or come to your location and perform a disk scrubbing and verification process. Through, Meridian you can also purchase systems for copiers and printers that will clean your hard drive of sensitive data.

Modern print technology has made it possible to produce large volumes of high-quality printed material right in the office.
