Brother International Corporation Continues to Deliver Innovation to Businesses of All Sizes with Next-Generation Color Laser Printers and All-in-Ones
BRIDGEWATER, N.J., March 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Building upon its reputation as a leading provider of business-class document imaging technology and solutions, Brother International Corporation today introduced its expanded line of color laser printers and All-in-Ones. These devices have been specifically designed to address critical business challenges faced by organizations of all sizes especially improving business workflow efficiency and enhancing document security. This new series of devices provides enterprise-level security, helping to ensure that confidential documents are only accessed by intended recipients and restricting unauthorized parties from accessing specific printer functions, such as color printing to help control printing costs.
Brother on March 15 took the wraps off seven new color laser and multifunction printers that offer businesses of practically all sizes the tools to combat data leakage due to the improper handling of printed materials.

For many private and public sector firms, understanding the opportunities to reduce their printing can make the difference between having an unmanaged, costly print service or providing a well-managed, cost-effective print environment. In many cases, the cost saving and productivity results of the latter option can be dramatic.

With so much effort put into securing networks, devices and IT systems, printers and other seemingly innocent office devices are often overlooked. None more so than the humble office printer, which believe it or not can be subject to more vulnerabilities than anyone could ever guess, due to inadequate firewall protection.
