Lexmark International has announced it has partnered with Intelligent ID, experts in insider risk management and user behavioral analysis, to co-develop 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 also enable the two companies to collaborate on software that enhances the tracking and security of sensitive documents, preventing external and internal threats.
Allen Waugerman, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Lexmark said, “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 organisation. Our partnership with Intelligent ID will strengthen our offerings to provide this coverage against internal threats, providing a safer, more productive work environment.”
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 also provide 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.
Jim Mazotas, Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Intelligent ID added, “imagine having the ability to monitor print, copy, fax and scan documents in real time to prevent accidental or purposeful data leaks. Our partnership with Lexmark will extend this monitoring coverage to include all users and devices within the organisation, providing an innovative solution that solves insider threat potentials.”
