Helpful Tips to make your Xerox device more secure

Xerox recommends the following to help protect your Xerox device:
  • Don’t connect your Xerox device directly to the public Internet. Make sure it’s behind a firewall or router so that only you and your users have access to it. This helps keep outsiders from accessing the machine and interrupting your business.
  • Change default passwords on accounts such as the administrator and SNMP Community Strings so unauthorized individuals cannot take control.
  • Passwords that you use should not be easy to guess- Make them at least 8 (eight) characters in length with a combination of letters (upper & lower case), numbers and special characters.
  • Never share the administrator’s password with anyone who does not have a legitimate need to know.
  • Enable TLS and validate any certificates used with the device.
  • Enable/Disable any security features/services/ ports that are applicable for your environment. Best practice is to disable services and ports if you are not using them.
  • Enable Image Overwrite.
  • Ensure you have the latest software releases/patches.

Reference the appropriate Secure Installation and Operation document or System Admin Guide for your device. Use the Xerox Security Information, Bulletins, and Advisory Responses section below to find those guides and to access other security related information, including software updates. Be sure to check with your IT department and follow their recommendations.
