Lexmark International has been recognised as a Leader by IT market research and advisory firm, IDC, in its IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Security Solutions and Services Hardcopy 2017 Vendor Assessment.
This is the first IDC MarketScape to focus on print and document security. The study assesses the market for print and document security solutions and services among the top global hardcopy vendors and identifies their strengths and challenges.
Allen Waugerman, Lexmark Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer said, “as we tell our customers, unsecured print equals unsecured IT. Lexmark’s comprehensive approach to security addresses the broad range of threats in today's environment.”
“Customers across the globe trust Lexmark with their information. Being named a Leader in print and document security solutions by IDC MarketScape demonstrates their trust is well placed.”
The IDC MarketScape report notes that Lexmark’s “vertical approach, combined with Lexmark's expansive security solutions portfolio and professional services expertise, puts Lexmark in a strong position for delivering best-in-class security for its customers."
The report advises, “organisations should consider Lexmark when they are looking for global consistency and sound functional skill sets for projects focused on output/document security. Lexmark should also be on the short list of vendors when breadth and depth of the solutions portfolio is top of mind.”
In addition to this report, Lexmark has been named a Leader in IDC MarketScape reports looking at managed print and document services / document workflow services in each of the five years those reports have been issued.
