When unlocked, a device’s control panel can pose a significant risk by enabling the wrong user to adjust important settings, whether intentionally or unintentionally. To counter this, OKI’s devices feature locking operation panels and include the ability to change admin passwords, requiring user authentication for those attempting to change device settings or access stored data.
OKI's devices can be configured to only allow authorised administrators to adjust settings. IC Card authentication can also be used, so only personnel that are supplied with cards can access the device settings.
Encrypted jobs can also be retrieved with access restrictions, only allowing those who should have access to the data to retrieve the encrypted job. Data can be further protected by disabling USB ports and data scanned can be processed directly into encrypted PDF format.
