Market researcher IDC has named Ricoh as a global leader in addressing security for printed documents.

A new IDC MarketScape report notes that Ricoh’s security solutions portfolio, combined with core competencies in managed services, infrastructure services, workflow services, and software development, help position the firm as one of the leading vendors for addressing security within the print and document environment.

“It is evident Ricoh places a premium on security,” says Robert Palmer, research director, Imaging, Printing, and Document Solutions, IDC. “Every product and service has been designed from the bottom up with security in mind. Ricoh has established a broad base of both owned technology and partner solutions to address security concerns for customers of all sizes and industries. Its expansive program includes: device and application security; cybersecurity, including network infrastructure to information security; and protection of data and content.”

The Japanese-owned multinational imaging, electronics and production print giant welcomed the report.

“At Ricoh, we say that security is in our DNA,” said David Levine, chief information security officer, Ricoh USA. “We work hard for and with our customers’ requirements to assess risk and compliance in the design, implementation and ongoing management of office solutions to keep their information safe. In a world where we are generating more and more data every second, and industries, governments and organisations must safeguard that data from bad actors, Ricoh takes security very seriously.”
