Security

In the world of IoT, security risks are increasing in the evolving workplace – and now more than ever, it is imperative that businesses have procedures to help protect their confidential information.

  3. Encrypted PDF: if you set a password for a PDF file, only users who enter the correct password can open, edit, or print the file
  4. Device Digital Signature PDF: embeds the digital ID stored on your C5500 model in a PDF
