Keypoint Intelligence validates MPS Monitor’s security posture

MPS Monitor®, the company that develops and distributes the leading platform for the remote monitoring and management of printers and multifunctional devices, announces that Keypoint Intelligence, the document imaging industry’s most trusted resource for unbiased information and analysis, has performed a detailed assessment of MPS Monitor’s security methodology as well as its platform’s security policies and procedures. The findings of this analysis are published in a whitepaper entitled Managed Print Services Platform Security. Reporting positively on the comprehensive measures that MPS Monitor has implemented to keep customers’ devices and their data secure, the document validates the security claims made by MPS Monitor. The whitepaper is available at this link.

In line with MPS Monitor’s belief that seeking independent endorsement of its security claims is both best practice and reassuring for end-users, it commissioned Keypoint Intelligence – the most accredited print technology testing laboratory in the world – to examine its security procedures and to document them. Of particular note, Keypoint Intelligence’s analysis concluded that MPS Monitor proved to maintain customer devices in a secure posture through proactive and automated management of key device settings and that it provides a deeply tested DCA technology that fulfills its customers’ most stringent security requirements.

Furthermore, it was satisfied that MPS Monitor’s platform runs on a proven and secure cloud infrastructure that benefits from continuous security testing and auditing from specialized security teams. It also recognized that MPS Monitor has in place a complete and comprehensive set of policies and procedures that meets the requirement for industry-standard security certifications. It also stated that MPS Monitor went ‘the extra mile to ensure its platform is certified as compliant to stringent international security standards like ISO/IEC 27001 and SOC 2.

Commenting on the findings of the whitepaper, Nicola De Blasi, CEO of MPS Monitor, commented: “From small businesses through to larger enterprises and across all public sector organizations, security is priority number one. The financial cost and reputational damage suffered during a security breach can be immense. However, print is often overlooked as a target for cybercriminals intent to gain access to the network. At MPS Monitor, we’re acutely aware of this risk, which is why we have gone above and beyond meeting the required industry standards for security, to create an MPS platform that excels in its security capabilities, thereby protecting dealers and their customers from introducing additional risks into their environments. That’s why we are thrilled that our efforts have been recognized by Keypoint Intelligence, given the completeness of its vigorous testing procedures, which have made it a highly respected authority on this subject.”

Jamie Bsales, Director of Solutions, Security & Smart Workplace Analysis at Keypoint Intelligence, added: “Analyzing security claims made by vendors about their services or solutions is important for giving customers and end-users peace of mind on a matter that is vital for their business. In MPS Monitor’s case, we are impressed by its commitment to engineering a platform that truly embraces a holistic – and thorough – approach to security. It satisfies our requirements that the company’s security approach, methodology, and main procedures it applies, provides robust and industry-leading security for its users.”
