Five Advantages of RFID for Secure Printing
Most organizations are opting for some form of print management today—and it's easy to understand why.
May 19, 2019—
Print management helps companies control costs, protect confidential information and share expenses fairly between departments. But what's the best identity-authentication solution?
Personal identification number (PIN)- or password-based systems are the default and are the most commonly used solution across the industry. But radio frequency identification (RFID) provides significant advantages in security, speed, simplicity, savings and user satisfaction. Here's why more companies are moving to RFID for their print-management needs.
Passwords and PINs can be easily compromised when users share them with colleagues, or if a bad actor watches over someone's shoulder to steal their information. PINs can also be easily mis-keyed, releasing the wrong job to the wrong person. Whether accidental or intentional, if the job released includes confidential information—say, HR records or company financial data—security is compromised. RFID cards, which are typically assigned as employee IDs and door-access cards, are less likely to be shared between employees and cannot be easily duplicated or hacked. Card readers can be configured to read different outputs (e.g., binary, decimal and hexadecimal), adding complexity that makes it nearly impossible for the information on the card to be copied or stolen.
