Regulatory Compliance and MFP Security Solutions: Key Issues and Considerations

INTRODUCTION

In the early 1980s securing a computer, printer or fax machine meant placing it behind a locked door. That was before computers were on every desktop, and before the advent of multi- functional products (MFPs). The MFP consolidates functionality into a single, space-saving platform, enabled businesses to address varied document processing needs, specifically walk-up copy and fax operations and network scan, fax and print functions. From document creation through output and distribution, the MFP plays a pivotal role in today’s connected workplace.

Indeed, as a centralized document processing hub, the MFP has transformed the office landscape by speeding the generation and dissemination of information. In the pre-Internet era documents were carried by courier or express mail services. Now those same documents are easily converted into electronic files, via the MFP, and communicated locally or globally–in an instant. As technology has evolved, so too has the speed at which business moves.

This shift from paper-based to electronic business processes presents formidable challenges for IT security professionals, and others tasked with safeguarding information assets. With nearly instantaneous dissemination capabilities, business-critical documents can be routed to unauthorized individuals in seconds. 

To remain competitive in today’s challenging economic climate, organizations–now more than ever– have to protect information assets from theft or loss. Information security is particularly critical for businesses subject to a labyrinth of federal regulations, such as HIPAA, SOX and GLBA. In this white paper, we will examine the issue of regulatory compliance as it relates to office technology, and thus provide guidance on security solutions that can help support enterprise-wide compliance initiatives.

Product Summary for Remark Office OMR

OMR / Remark Office OMR Overview

Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) is a technology that has been used for many years in schools, universities, businesses, government agencies and many other institutions. OMR is the process of reading data from “fill in the bubble” types of forms. Typical uses for OMR forms include standardized tests, course evaluations, surveys and many other types of forms. Traditionally, OMR forms have been processed using special scanners, special forms printed using high-end printing presses and number two pencils for filling in these forms. Traditional OMR solutions tend to be expensive and inflexible and are only practical in situations where large volumes of the same form are processed over and over. Gravic set out to change this, and since 1991 has been developing and perfecting our software to bring this useful technology to the desktop. Over the years, Remark Office OMR has become the world’s leading package for collecting data from OMR forms. 

Remark Office OMR is a software package designed to collect data from optical marks (bubbles, checkboxes) on plain paper forms. The software works in conjunction with an image scanner to collect the data. Instead of special forms, users can create their own forms with any word processor, desktop publishing package or form design software. Users are allowed a great deal of flexibility in the design process. These forms can be printed on any laser printer or photocopier and do not need special registration marks or drop-out inks. Respondents no longer need to keep a number two pencil on hand to fill in the forms. Over the years, Gravic has added other technologies such as barcode recognition and OCR (machine printed text recognition) to the product, but the product focus remains to be the easiest and most powerful solution on the market for collecting data from surveys, tests, assessments, evaluations and other forms. 

Image Scanning vs. Traditional OMR

The main difference between the two types of scanning is in the hardware with which they work. Remark Office OMR works with common image scanners. These are the type of scanners that can also be used for scanning pictures or pages of text and are readily available from online electronics vendors or your local computer dealer. Traditional OMR readers are commonly associated with standardized testing, pre-printed forms and number two pencils. Typically, the manufacturers’ sales representatives sell these machines directly to the end user.

Case Study: Muratec Building a “Best in Class” Website.

Capture1The Situation

Muratec is one of the leading manufacturers of printers, fax machines and copiers. During the 1990s, the client made a critical strategic decision: since stores like Offi ce Depot and Staples were eating into margins and driving down prices, they decided to withdraw from the retail channel and focus on direct sales. They needed a robust, comprehensive website to support this decision.

The Solution
RSW identifi ed the key success factors:

- Benchmarking
- Clarity
- Process
- Coordination

RSW built a site that would accommodate the needs of both customers and a third-party sales force. To ensure that the site was the “best in the industry,” we analyzed competitor sites using over 20 different benchmarks, and made sure that the Muratec site met or exceeded the top performer in each category.

Case Study: WLB Metaal

CaptureWLB Metaal , a sheetmetal subcontractor based in  Valkenswaard, Netherlands, has driven their Muratec Wiedeman Vectrum 3000a turret punch press with its originally provided software for 8 years. As business increased a number of problems became significant.  There was no form of automatic nesting and there had been no updates of the software for around 7 years.  Furthermore the creation and amendment of parts was extremely labour intensive and prone to error.

In 2007 WLB decided to replace their CAD and CAM systems and, after researching the marketplace narrowed their selection to two systems, one of which was the JETCAM.

Mark Meuwissen, CNC Programmer, said; “During the comparison process it was clear that JETCAM was more efficient.  It was also easy to use.  The fact that it was in Dutch languate with local language support was also important to us.

A license of JETCAM Expert 1 was supplied and installed in April 2007 by local JETCAM reseller Widenhorn Industriele Automatisering, who also supplied a license of Autopol 3D CAD software to work in conjunction with JETCAM.
