To minimize potential security risks, Ricoh asks that customers follow the below practices.

  1. When the device is connected to a network, make sure that the network is protected, for instance, by a firewall.
  2. Install the device in a secure network where users are restricted.
  3. To protect the device from fraudulent operation by malicious persons, make sure to set up and periodically change passwords for the administrator and supervisor.
    Complex passwords more than 8 characters are recommended.
  4. Install the device in an environment under appropriate physical security to prevent unauthorized access.
