Revised Cyber Security Measures for a Remote Workforce

As the workforce adjusts to remote working there has unfortunately been an increase in cyber security criminals taking advantage of IT security gaps. The Stay Safe Online Tip Sheet enforces the main recommendations for employees working remotely.

When it comes to secure printing for remote employees the best option is to look for a solution that can offer in-depth security. This includes the ability to proactively monitor data in order to identify vulnerable areas and detect potential data breaches before they happen.

More than ever IT managers need the support from channel partners to rollout thorough security measures, and make it as easy as possible to print from any mobile or tablet device, as printing is still a requirement for remote working. Unfortunately, mobile print applications that need to be installed on every device are no longer feasible and leave enticing security gaps for potential hackers.

Brother International Corporation Partners with Kofax to Resell ControlSuite™ on a Global Basis

Unified Print Management and Capture with Unprecedented Document Security Creates a High Value, Compelling and Comprehensive Solution

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., March 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Brother International Corporation today announces a partnership with Kofax®, providing an embedded solution on selected Brother laser printers, multifunction devices and inkjet models. Dedicated Brother Sales and Technical Pre-Sales teams will be trained to deploy Kofax ControlSuite and empower organizations to manage, secure and govern documents with unified print management, capture and document security.

“Kofax is excited to partner with Brother,” says Chris Strammiello, Senior Vice President of Channels at Kofax.  “Their award-winning imaging devices and our market-leading security and automation software will combine to offer a high value, compelling and comprehensive solution.”

ControlSuite is the next generation print management, capture and document security software solution – simplifying and enabling central management and governance of content flowing through mobile and desktop devices, email and print streams. ControlSuite also actively manages, secures and governs virtually every aspect of document distribution via printing, scanning, routing and storing throughout the enterprise – across any combination of hybrid systems, technologies and devices. This provides unmatched productivity through unified printing, scanning and workflow processes.

Businesses are more likely to suffer significant material losses due to a document-related breach than a data breach,” says Joe Ashcraft, Vice President, B2B Sales. “The compatibility of Brother devices with ControlSuite addresses the core challenge of secure document management: making sure information lands in the right hands with a single, streamlined solution that reduces mistakes and boosts productivity.”

ControlSuite pairs well with Brother’s SMB laser devices and enables enterprises to securely manage and govern documents, supporting compliance by automatically generating audit trails that track documents and how they’re accessed and used.

“Security, compliance and the impact on business continues to be a top priority for organizations of all sizes,” says Keith Kmetz, Vice President of Imaging, Printing & Document Solutions at IDC. “When implementing a document management strategy, IT professionals need to look at solutions offering confidence their network won’t be breached. To satisfy this need Brother is partnering with Kofax, considered by IDC to be a global leader in device and print management. This partnership allows Brother to broaden its security offerings and help organizations navigate their digital transformation journey.”

Steps 7 to 9 of Nine Steps to In-plant Profitability Series

This vlog is the final post of our three-part series about the nine steps that I see that in-plants need to take to increase their financial stability. This was written before the pandemic, but it is just as relevant, and some could argue even more relevant because all three of these videos describe issues that require some time to complete. If you work on these now, when life starts to return to normal you will return stronger.

In part one of this nine-steps series, I outlined all nine steps and talked about the first three steps (accurate costs, workflow automation, and up-to-date staffing strategy). In part two, I talked about steps four through six, (productive procedures, happy customers, and the need for good metrics and KPIs).

Best Practices for Managing a Remote Workforce

By: Kim Ward, GreatAmerica – With the looming threat of coronavirus, or COVID-19, companies and employees are being forced to make important decisions about how they will temporarily conduct business while dealing with the complexities of this issue. Most companies are committing to social distancing and a telecommuting model for their organizations to help flatten the curve and prevent the spread of this infection. Just like you, we at the Learning Outsource Group are also adapting our operations and services to continue to support the needs of our most important partners, our clients.

If you have team members who are or will be working from home, we wanted to share some recommendations and best practices that we ourselves, as well as our clientele, have found helpful to enhancing engagement, productivity, communication, and overall job satisfaction of newly remote employees.

Provide a Vision of Hope, Value and Recognition

There’s no doubt we are in a time of transition and unpredictable circumstances. That’s why it is so important to lead with a message of confidence and hope. Hope mitigates uncertainty. Let employees know that even though they might not be working in the office, their mission and responsibilities remain extremely valued and important. Help them focus on the service and value they provide their customers and be sure you recognize employees who are performing well. Provide support, structure, and encouragement to those who are adjusting to a new workstyle, during these difficult times. A little extra recognition, reward, or motivation, can provide something positive for employees to focus on over the obstacles they may be encountering.

Additionally, we are conducting extensive cleaning and disinfecting, as well as adding sanitizers at all DEX locations and in all DEX company vehicles.

We are dedicated to providing service without interruption. If service lapses from any of your other office equipment vendors, please don’t hesitate to call on DEX.
