Logging confidential job data, avoiding security leaks

Companies that deal with confidential data have to establish strict security standards and avoid any kind of leakage. The application bEST Guard helps to protect confidential company information by storing image log and job log data in an external database.

bEST Guard saves printed, copied, scanned or faxed pages together with additional information concerning executed actions, user names, job status or time sent. Thus the application supports administrators in creating secure working environments by avoiding information leaks.
