Lexmark, a global imaging solutions leader, announced it has partnered with Intelligent ID, experts in insider risk management and user behavioral analysis, to codevelop a full spectrum of document and endpoint security offerings.
By combining Lexmark’s imaging expertise and Intelligent ID’s innovative data monitoring methodology, the partnership is expected to produce an end-to-end approach to combat insider threats.
This partnership will enable the two companies to collaborate on software that enhances the tracking and security of sensitive documents, preventing external and internal threats.
The solutions are expected to enable security efforts that focus on detecting the malicious and non-malicious breaches that may occur internally when sensitive digital information is duplicated or transferred to hardcopy through a printer or multifunction-imaging device.
The partnership will provide comprehensive data risk monitoring via the company’s network, the user’s endpoint or the Lexmark device itself. Data will be collected in real time or over a period of time.
“In the age of digital transformation, we want to provide not only secure data protocols against external forces, but also enable customers to strengthen their monitoring coverage to include all users and devices within the organization,” said Allen Waugerman, senior vice president and chief technology officer, Lexmark. “Our partnership with Intelligent ID will strengthen our offerings to provide this coverage against internal threats, providing a safer, more productive work environment.”
“Imagine having the ability to monitor print, copy, fax and scan documents in real time to prevent accidental or purposeful data leaks,” said Jim Mazotas, founder and chief technology officer, Intelligent ID. “Our partnership with Lexmark will extend this monitoring coverage to include all users and devices within the organization, providing an innovative solution that solves insider threat potentials.”
