Ringdale® features in IDC's Spotlight Report, the Evolving Workplace and Data Privacy Compliance for Print and Document Management

Burgess Hill, United Kingdom, November 16, 2020 - Ringdale, the provider of FollowMe®, the leading print management solution for Enterprise and Government organizations, has been featured in IDC's latest Spotlight Report. This report focuses on the evolving workplace, highlighting the importance of compliance tools to ensure data privacy. By focusing on the challenges, and identifying the risks that organizations are facing when looking to ensure their digital and physical print workflows remain compliant, this report is an essential tool for organizations as they adjust their 2021 digital and physical print security and compliance strategies.

As many organizations have had to adopt more flexible remote working practices, there is an ever pressing need to ensure effective data privacy protection policies and solutions are in place to support more distributed printing, especially for those users working from home. Latest market research* reveals that one-third of organizations have no current plans to invest in print and document management security and are leaving themselves open to potential data breaches and fines for compliance infringements.

The IDC Spotlight report highlights:

  • The latest data privacy requirements for print and document workflows
  • Essential recommendations in meeting evolving industry and regional compliance requirements
  • An independent evaluation of secure print management solution components to mitigate data security risks

"Global events have led to an increase in malicious activity, where ransomware attacks have caused significant disruption for organizations, especially those in the Enterprise and Government sectors," says Eric Crump, director of strategic alliances at Ringdale. "The public and private sector needs to proactively implement trusted compliance methods to protect digital and physical printed information from the continuous risk of a data breach including both corporate and consumer's personal identifiable information".
