Watch Now

State and local governments have become prime targets for cyberattacks. As more organizations have shifted to remote work in recent months, phishing attacks have increased 85 percent and cyber breaches overall have increased 600 percent.

It’s now more important than ever for states and localities to secure all their endpoints. Governments have traditionally focused on PCs, laptops and mobile devices connected to their networks. But printers are just as crucial to endpoint security.

As more state and local governments operate in a hybrid environment where employees split their time between home and the office, government IT teams will need to adapt to this new normal and balance business efficiency and agility with enterprise security.

Join us on July 22 at 10 am PT/1 pm ET for an overview of the critical role that printers play in an organization’s overall security posture.

As a participant in this 45-minute webinar, you’ll learn:

  • How to assess your current endpoint security risks and vulnerabilities, and how to develop a holistic security plan that includes printers along with other devices on your network
  • How managed print services can strengthen endpoint security
  • What specifics to look for in hardware, software and firmware to extend the operational and security capabilities of print devices
