The Print Security Landscape 2020

Despite the significant levels of data loss and associated cost, IT Decision Makers still place print security much lower on the IT security agenda. While email, networks and cloud are ranked in the top three, securing printing is in seventh place according to Quocirca research.

As cyberattacks continue to increase, capitalising on the new vulnerabilities of remote working, securing the print infrastructure – across the office and home environments – must be a strategic priority. Quocirca’s Print Security Landscape 2020 study reveals increasing concerns around the risks of printing, and declining confidence in the ability to protect the print infrastructure against security breaches.

This study is based on the views of 508 IT Decision Makers (ITDMs) in the US and Europe.

Key findings

  • COVID-19 has accelerated the move to remote working and cloud computing.
  • In the past six months, two-thirds of organisations have experienced data losses due to unsecure printing practices.
  • IT security remains the top investment priority over the next 12 months.
