Secure your data and infrastructure, including your thermal printers!

Security risks are real, and attacks are getting increasingly frequent and sophisticated. No matter the size of your organisation. Endpoints are becoming popular targets—including networked thermal printers. Successful network security requires layers of protection.

When you integrate a new thermal printer you expect it to increase productivity, not introduce security vulnerabilities. Zebra helps you defend against security breaches with our Print DNA ecosystem, powered by Link-OS, featuring PrintSecure. Together, they give you the tools to easily configure your printers to use secure connections, assess potential vulnerabilities, block unauthorised access and control your data exchanges. Zebra is committed to securing your performance edge.

The PrintSecure v2 solution brings new security features, including the following improvements:

  • Automated Wi-Fi Certificate Management using Printer Profile Manager Enterprise v3.1
Proactively safeguard printers with the Automated Wi-Fi Certificate Management solution. This eliminates manual steps, reduces potential errors and risk. Unique printer certificates can be automatically updated before they reach their expiration date.
  • Security Assessment Wizard Feature via Printer Setup Utility for Android™ & iOS®

A new command is available to reset all user settings and remove user files. This simplifies moving printers between applications or retiring older units.
