Just like PCs, today's digital office devices use a hard disk drive to store document data. Computer systems and networks are protected by firewalls, passwords and encryption. Despite the precautions of manufacturers, the data on your imaging and communication systems often remains vulnerable to industrial spying and information leaks. When the temporary data on the hard disk drive is compressed with Ricoh's unique compression method, it is virtually impossible to restore it to its original state. To double security, the data can be erased. To this end, Ricoh presents Data Overwrite Security Unit.
Whenever pages are printed or copied, your multifunctional device stores the latent image data as temporary data on the system's hard disk drive. Ricoh's Data Overwrite Security Unit erases the temporary data on the hard disk drive. By overwriting the information with random data twice and null data once, Ricoh offers an unprecedented level of security. All confidential data is unrecoverable. Especially when your company often handles mission critical information, overlooking the data retained on your multi-functional device can lead to security breaches and information leaks. Ricoh's Data Overwrite Security Unit allows you to benefit from all the functionalities of your equipment, eliminating the security threat without interrupting your normal workflow. A simple display panel icon provides visual feedback regarding the overwrite process. You can rest assured there are no loopholes in your system's security.
