Sharp Security Suite
The Sharp Security Suite is effective at preventing unauthorized access to your most confidential information because security has been designed from the ground-up. At the core of the device is a proprietary embedded operating system that is resistant to attack from malicious code and virtually untouchable by viruses, worms or trojan horses. Around this impenetrable core, Sharp MFPs utilize a multi-layered approach to protection—providing better control over the users, devices, ports, protocols and applications that access your Sharp MFPs.
Sharp Data SecurityKit
The optional Data Security Kit (DSK) helps protect and control major MFP systems and subsystems (print, copy, scan, fax jobs, network settings, operating system, memory components, local user interface, engine and job controller). The DSK uses the 128/256 bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm on all data before it is written to RAM or Flash memory and the hard disk. The DSK also provides overwriting routines for deleted data, to ensure all information is virtually irretrievable by unauthorized users.
Sharp Secure Network Interface
Sharp MFPs use unique, embedded firmware not based on the Windows®/Linux® operating system. Therefore, the Sharp MFP’s internal systems are not subject to the same virus vulnerability as Microsoft and Linux operating systems. The unique Sharp architecture provides no user interface and cannot execute downloaded files or commands sent by an attacker to compromise the system.
