Is Your CTP Device or Digital Press Vulnerable to Hacking?

If you have an older platemaking system or digital press, you should be taking some steps to protect your print business from computer viruses and other forms of cyber attacks. The recent “WannaCry” ransomware used a flaw in Microsoft’s software to lock files so they couldn’t be used until the user paid a ransom to cyber criminals, and new malware is being developed and released continuously.

Cyber attacks can cause costly interruptions and loss of data for any business, and print businesses are no exception. Printers that are using older equipment or equipment purchased secondhand could be particularly vulnerable.

Outstanding digital printing performance depends on far more than a superior product.  Now more than ever, print service providers (PSPs) are facing a unique set of challenges. According to a recent InfoTrends survey, workflow issues have increased threefold since 2013.

Moreover, continual intervention can defer your business from opportunities of growth and improvement.
