GreatAmerica MPSecure Addresses Work-From-Home Print Security Vulnerabilities
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Program Initiates Discussion Around New Print and IT Opportunities
(Cedar Rapids, IA) – GreatAmerica Financial Services Corporation announced a new print security program for office technology providers to support the new work-from-home world. The MPSecure program educates providers on network security risks that arise from using unmanaged personal printers and scanners. It also provides financing options for technology associated with secure at-home print environments.
“Businesses concerned about their security and business continuity will appreciate their technology provider coming to them with this information about print security in this new environment,” said Jennie Fisher, Senior VP and General Manager of the Office Equipment Group at GreatAmerica. “MPSecure changes the conversation in the dealer channel, allowing trusted advisors to bring value as well as new print, workflow and IT opportunity to their markets.”
The awareness campaign highlights risks and costs, including cybersecurity risks to the company network due to out-of-date firmware on personal devices, WiFi vulnerabilities, out of control costs due to unmanaged devices and consumables, and physical document security risks caused by improper document disposal.
Office technology providers are encouraged to download the GreatAmerica white paper Calling Out the Blind Spots in a Work-From-Home World to educate their staff, as well as the WFH Print Security Marketing Tool Kit. The kit comes with unbranded marketing content for providers to use in their own awareness campaign efforts. It includes a white paper, flyer, video, email copy and social media posts.
The MPSecure launch offers educational and marketing resources to Office Technology Providers, including a whitepaper and Marketing Tool Kit, available from www.greatamerica.com/mpsecure
