Xerox Secure Access Unified ID System integrates your Xerox multifunction systems with your existing employee/student ID PIN or badge providing a simple and convenient authentication system. Allow your staff, employees or students to send documents to a centralised print server. Then at any multifunction printer on the network they'll simply log in with a swipe of their magnetic, SMART, or proximity ID card or their PIN to securely print their job. This easy and secure access to documents reduces the risk of leaving confidential information lying unclaimed on the printer.

Secure Access is also IT-friendly as the automatic access card registration features allows new users to self-register their cards. The first time a new user swipes their card they will be prompted to link their card with Secure Access by entering their user account login. Once this is done, the card is associated with Secure Access and the user will have access to all associated multifunction printers.

Key Features

  • Card-based user identification allows users to login at the MFP with their pre-existing identification card
  • Double your security with our two-factor card-based identification option which adds a required pin/password login at the MFP
  • Follow-You Printing® allows print jobs to be securely retrieved at any Secure Access-enabled device
  • Additional Follow-You Printing flexibility with Xerox Extensible Interface Platform (EIP)-enabled devices include:
    • Users can choose the documents to be released or deleted from the print queue
    • Print and Save feature allows a user to release a pending print job, and retain for later reprint
    • Determine the number of copies desired
    • Obtain additional information about a pending print or fax job to help determine the user, when the job was sent, and what will be printed

Your Challenges

In today's regulatory climate, businesses need sophisticated ways of safeguarding their data. In addition, IT managers are looking for ways to protect the assets on their network. Multifunction systems are a logical place to secure networks and enhance document information security.

Key Challenges

  • Increased network resources are necessary to handle improved MFP capabilities such as network scanning or scan to email
  • Governmental and regulatory policies
  • Rising document costs
  • Doing more with less – improving worker productivity
  • Trend towards printing forms on demand instead of warehousing potentially outdated material
