This new version of SSO no longer requires an additional security agent, and takes advantage of the robust security features of Kerberos Authentication. The optional Access Management System allows system administrators to define privileges to users, or groups of users and can now be integrated with SSO. These privileges can be used to restrict access to certain functions such as print, scan, fax, copy, USB media access, and many more.
A number of features are available as either optional or standard to protect your most critical information. Features such as Encrypted Secured Print, Encrypted PDF, and Digital Device signatures help protect documents, while the HDD Data Erase and Encryption kits and Removable HDD Kit help to protect the information stored on device's internal Hard Drive. Network security consists of MAC/IP Address filtering, as well as new support for IPSec and IEEE802.1x (Wire/Wireless).
