    Lexmark introduces smart card security solution for federal government
    October 2006
    Lexmark
    has introduced enhanced network security protection to the U.S.
    government that prevents copying, scanning, faxing, or printing without
    the user first inserting a common access card issued by the Department
    of Defense.LEXINGTON, Ky.– Lexmark International, Inc. has introduced
    a unique authentication solution for laser multifunction products
    (MFPs) in response to the stringent security standards of the U.S.
    federal government.Lexmark’s solution gives federal government agencies
    an option for enhanced network security protection for MFPs by locking
    them so that users cannot copy, fax, scan, print, or initiate workflow
    processes from the device without first inserting a common access card
    (CAC) and obtaining authentication. CACs are issued to Department of
    Defense (DoD) employees and are used to verify identity and security
    classifications. Lexmark’s solution helps ensure that only authorized
    employees can access the network through an MFP.As a leader in
    developing customized solutions, Lexmark is the first printer
    manufacturer to deliver this level of security for MFPs to the federal
    government. This solution can be adapted for other federal agencies as
    a common identification standard for all federal employees and
    contractors in response to the Homeland Security Presidential Directive
    (HSPD-12).”By working closely with the federal government, we were able
    to quickly meet its enhanced security needs by leveraging the flexible
    architecture of Lexmark’s MFP technology. We are pleased to provide a
    solution that now allows government agencies to take full advantage of
    the productivity benefits of MFP technology with an enhanced level of
    network security,” said Paul Rooke, Lexmark executive vice president
    and president of its Printing Solutions and Services Division.Lexmark
    offers a wide range of other security options, including advanced
    features such as disk wiping, encryption, IPSec, SSL, SNMPv3, 802.1x
    and secure user authentication. Lexmark’s offerings enhance secure
    management, secure network communications and secure information
    storage and can be customized to meet each customer’s unique needs.
