The Threat of Print Security in an Increasingly Remote Working World

According to some sources, over 82% of companies will allow workers to work remotely at least some of the time, even after the pandemic has faded away. Even more striking, 47% of companies expect to see a portion of their workforces working from home permanently. Supporting remote workers, especially when it comes to information security, has its own set of unique challenges.

The bad news: Printer and print security is still woefully neglected.
