Brother Security

While IT security threats and their impact on businesses continue to grow and evolve, security and compliance remain top priorities for Brother. Brother’s robust line-up of business-class products deliver advanced security features that address the common print security threats businesses are facing today. To help protect against print security threats and maintain compliance, Brother business products offer three lines of defense – one at every critical level.

Network security

Network Security

Eliminate outside threats while supporting the latest protocols and enabling device sharing

  • Devices conform to 802.1x security standards
  • IPPs encrypts print data streams as they move across the network
  • SFTP/SSH Server uses RSA encryption and public key authentication for highly secure scan-to-cloud applications
  • Devices can be connected to internal / external secure environments using built-in IPsec
  • Devices support SNMP v3 which enables communication for device management support to be protected using industry standard encryption
device security

Device Security

Limit device access at the group, individual and activity level

  • No internal hard drive: Because Brother products do not have a hard drive, it eliminates the risk of sensitive documents remaining on the printer’s hard drive when the device is discarded
  • Setting Lock restricts access to device settings to prevent unauthorized access
  • Secure Function Lock prevents access to device settings and select functions
  • Secure Print+ optional add-on can release print jobs when user logs into device – no servers or applications required
  • Active Directory user authentication allows and restricts access to machine features
document security

Document Security

Enable users to protect sensitive or confidential data sent over networks

  • Secure Print allows users to pause printing until physically at device; a PIN can be assigned to print job
  • Near Field Communication (NFC) reader allows for walk-up authorization to release print jobs and restrict access to device functions; requires Secure Function Lock or third-party application such as PaperCut or nddPrint 360
  • Active Directory Secure Print allows users with network credentials to access devices on-the-go; restricts physical access to unauthorized users; requires username and password to unlock device and collect documents
  • To protect printed and scanned data Brother devices can integrate with third-party solutions like:
  • PaperCut and nddPrint 360: Track printed pages; release print jobs
  • Protected Trust: End-to-end email encryption, authentication and certification
