Sharp multifunction printers (MFPs) are designed to make device setup easier and faster. These are not your typical all-in-one copier, printing, faxing and scanning devices. Precision engineered to help increase workflow efficiency and provide exceptional image quality, Sharp MFPs are easier to operate, control, monitor, manage and maintain — helping take your business to the next level of productivity and performance.
Easy to Use Devices
For years, digital multifunction printer/copiers have added more features and functions. But, functionality can lead to over-complexity. The new Sharp MFP models are designed to make it easier and faster to set up, operate, control, monitor, manage and maintain.
Built-In Retractable Keyboard
Designed to simplify email address and subject line entries, as well as repetitive scanning tasks and user authentication, the built-in keyboard offers users a familiar ergonomic interface.
Simple operation with total control over input, output and document access, the latest Sharp MFPs incorporate an easy-to-use high-resolution color display to help users improve their productivity.
Direct USB Printing
Need to print PDF brochures in a hurry for a big meeting? Plug in your portable USB device to a Sharp MFP for easy access to files for printing documents. Simple and efficient.
Remote Front Panel
The cutting-edge Sharp Remote Front Panel feature allows administrators and help desk professionals to access and control the Sharp MFP from a remote PC workstation.
Proven protection for confidential data, device access and network safeguards
As MFPs and printers become parts of organizations’ integrated document workflows and business processes, security becomes a serious concern. Securely managing business and user data is critical for corporations to be successful. Sharp addresses these concerns by providing a suite of integrated security features designed to help protect your information and document assets.
Physical Security Threats
Typically, MFPs are located in areas accessible by multiple people. Unauthorized personnel can potentially access corporate networks when devices are not fully protected. In addition, any information stored on a local desktop computer or a server can be printed without authorization. Meanwhile, at the device, confidential information can be accidentally or even purposely copied from stored documents, taken from the output tray or faxed without authorization.
Network Security Threats
Unsecured access to a company’s stored data makes it vulnerable to being stolen or altered. In the worst case, a user from the outside can obtain confidential information, unleash a Denial of Service (DOS) attack, or even place a virus on the device via a network or a phone line. Through a fax line, or corporate LAN, communications could be intercepted or sent without permission anywhere in the world. Even MFP data stored on a hard disk drive or in memory could be compromised or stolen if not protected.
