Are your Printers and Photocopiers GDPR Ready? Get GDPR Ready with EMS Security Pack and Data Security Kit

Are you GDPR Ready?

GDPR – The General Data Protection Regulation is set to replace the current Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) and will come into effect from the 25th May 2018. Current legislation for this area dates back over 20 years.  As we all know, in terms of security, data and internet use practice have changed considerably during this time. More specifically cloud computing and social networks have changed the way we use and store data.

GDPR will affect any organisation that obtains and stores personal data; including, names, photographs, social media details, health records, bank details. It will affect a vast range of sectors across business, education and health to name a few.

Networked printers and MFP’s are often not considered when it comes to  security measures.  However, these devices store and process data, and as intelligent devices have the same security vulnerabilities as any other networked device.

IT security is indispensable for secure business operations and uninterrupted processes.  Whether it is because of the increasing threat of cyber attacks, the growing number of applications and sensitive data, or new regulatory requirements, security in office communication represents a challenge for every company, and should therefore be at the very top of your agenda.

The UTAX Data Security Kit from EMS ensures the protection of your confidential information, right at the system level:

  • it overwrites and encrypts copying, scanning and printing data, even before they are saved to the hard drive.
  • In addition, the memory area for the output data is automatically deleted so that the data cannot be restored.


Originals whose data are temporarily stored on a hard drive or in memory during copying or scanning remain there unprotected until other data are saved.

Are data streams within your company protected against unauthorized access

during processing and administration? Can you exclude the possibility of unauthor-ised read-out of archived or temporarily stored printing data?


Automatic and permanent overwriting:

  • The Data Security Kit deletes and overwrites the output data in the memory area of your MFP or printer, so that they can no longer be restored. This process is permanent and automatic.

The UTAX Security Pack from EMS 

The UTAX SecurityPack stands out with an impressive multi-level security system. Sit back and relax – print jobs that involve sensitive data are safe from prying eyes. Prints are only released with ID Card or username and password.

Nobody gets past the UTAX SecurityPack: 

You’re sending confidential data to the printer when suddenly, you get an urgent call or a colleague comes into the office. This is no problem at all with the UTAX SecurityPack. The data sent is encrypted during transmission and can only be printed once an authorised user logs into the system.

This security system doesn’t leave a trace: Even sensitive data may remain in the memory of your multi functional device until it is overwritten by new jobs. To protect this information against unauthorised access, the UTAX SecurityPack provides a three-level security standard that renders the restoration of data almost impossible. So there is no fear of leaving behind a trace, at least not on your hard disk.
