This week it was revealed that several OEMs have been lauded in the first IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Security Solutions and Services Hardcopy Report.
According to a press release from the OEM, in the report Xerox was named as a leader “for its commitment to enterprise security and its broad portfolio of print and document security solutions.”
“For the past six years, Xerox has been a leader in the IDC MarketScape looking at managed print and document services and its evolution to document workflow services,” said Robert Palmer, research director, Imaging, Printing and Document Solutions, IDC. “Security has been a key component behind this success and it remains integral to Xerox’s overall approach to the market.”
The new IDC MarketScape report notes that Xerox has a broad portfolio of print and document security solutions in the form of tools, methodologies and services configured to meet individual customer IT strategy needs, including data, documents, devices, rules, and regulations governing both business and individual use cases. Also, Xerox’s methodology for securing the print and document environment is based on a layered approach, building up from the device level and expanding deeper into the customer’s applications and IT infrastructure.
The IDC report also named Ricoh as a leader, with IDC saying that Ricoh’s ““security solutions portfolio, combined with core competencies in managed services, infrastructure services, workflow services, and software development, help position the firm as one of the leading vendors for addressing security within the print and document environment.”
“Ricoh should also be on the short list when users are looking for a true partner in an ongoing engagement to address evolving technology and compliance changes in real time,” explained the report’s Consider Ricoh When section.
“From our analysis, it is evident Ricoh places a premium on security. Every product and service has been designed from the bottom up with security in mind,” said Robert Palmer, Research Director, Imaging, Printing, and Document Solutions, IDC. “Ricoh has established a broad base of both owned technology and partner solutions to address security concerns for customers of all sizes and industries. Its expansive program includes: device and application security; cybersecurity, including network infrastructure to information security; and protection of data and content. All of this is successfully supported by its global service delivery model, which helps set it apart from many of its competitors.”
Finally, HP was also included in the report as a leader, with highlights from the report including “HP’s approach to security takes the entire print and infrastructure into account” and “HP has established a formidable managed print services practice that includes security as a backbone”.
“Being positioned as a Leader in the first IDC MarketScape report on security solutions and services hardcopy is a testament to how HP is redefining endpoint security, creating the most trusted printing products, solutions and services for businesses,” said Tuan Tran, General Manager & Global Head, Office Printing Solutions, HP Inc. “From elevating awareness of the security risks facing organizations to best-in-class print fleet threat monitoring and risk remediation, security is at the heart of everything we do for our customers and partners around the world.”
“This recognition illustrates how we are continuing to hit new benchmarks for print and document security, and how HP Secure Managed Print Services provides organizations with the industry’s most comprehensive1 print security protections,” said Ed Wingate, Vice President and General Manager, JetAdvantage Solutions at HP Inc. “HP is laser focused on ensuring the best outcomes for our clients, helping them to stay on top of growing endpoint security challenges.”
