Lexmark Secure Content Monitor can also save organizations significant costs in the areas of compliance with government and industry standards. In fact, a 2012 Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance survey reports that automating key controls and taking a proactive stance is one of the few opportunities for businesses to achieve long-term cost savings with Sarbanes-Oxley compliance(1).( )
While many organizations today protect classified and confidential information transported through email, they are still exposed to security breaches with the potential unauthorized release of paper and digital documents.
Unauthorized release of such restricted information can significantly impact an organization across a myriad of fronts, ranging from reputation and trustworthiness to significant dollar costs. A recent study put the price tag on similar incidents at upwards of $8 million per breach(2).
Lexmark Secure Content Monitor can better protect organizations by:
- Automatically capturing and collecting information extracted from documents through an enterprise content management (ECM) system
- Providing access to electronic versions of documents exactly as they were copied, scanned, emailed or faxed
- Establishing proactive alerts that continuously search and identify content passing through the ECM system, identifying threats before costly damage occurs
- Helping businesses comply with government regulations, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and the Data Protection Act, with features such as identifying unauthorized users of key documents or information
“Lexmark has deep industry expertise in markets such as healthcare, government, manufacturing and finance, where the management of sensitive and confidential information is critical to success in both day-to-day operations and interactions between these organizations and their customers, clients and users,” said Marty Canning, Lexmark executive vice president and president of Imaging Solutions and Services. “Lexmark Secure Content Monitor enables organizations to mitigate and manage the risks associated with access to sensitive information, while concurrently enhancing compliance with government rules and regulations.”
