About the survey

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. The attack surface has now expanded to encompass remote endpoints such as home printers, which may fall through the gap of traditional print security measures.

This study is based on the views of 508 IT Decision Makers (ITDMs) in the US and Europe. The report also includes detailed profiles of print security offerings from the major print manufacturers and key ISVs.
