My PC is safe, but what about my printer?

Sounds silly and I know most of you are probably thinking how on earth could a printer be used as a threat? Truth is your network printer or copier can be a serious security liability.

Ask yourself, how much information do you print/copy/fax on a daily basis and how much of it is sensitive? Now imagine being an outsider and being able to access the lot!

Now recently security geniuses hacked a Canon printer and installed the classic 90s computer game doom by overriding the basic XOR encryption to gain access to the web interface of the Canon Pixma printer. Now the same tactics can be easily applied to either planting malicious software to spy on documents being printed or to establish a compromised gateway into a corporate network associated with the pox-ridden printer.

So what can we do about it?


Why Auratek?

Just like a Chameleon adapts to the environment around it, we work hard to adapt to yours. Our team will learn about your IT hardware and software systems to offer the best level of IT and network support possible.

Our experienced team are available to help you without the walls of jargon and rigidity preventing you from getting where you want to be.

At Auratek we are open with our price, we have nothing to hide, and with our flexible options, you never have to pay for anything you don’t need.

Simple; Clear; Open – The way IT support should be.


Who are we?

Our friendly team have over 30 years of combined experience and are based in our High Street offices in the heart of Broadstairs, Kent.  We are always on hand to help plan and maintain your IT systems, whether this is remote, onsite or even in our offices.

Auratek opened its doors in 2010 providing business to business IT Support, specialising in IT solutions designed for the Small to Medium enterprise.   We make sure we don’t dilute our core skills trying to offer every service ourselves,  instead of weakening the services we offer we have chosen to partner with other companies to offer a turnkey solution.

Auratek was able to meet and exceed our needs for our hardware configuration. At first, I though that it may be a problem for Auratek to take on our particular task because we are located in the USA, but everything went very smoothly and timely. Auratek will be handling all of our server support and we are confident from our past dealings that we are in good hands.
