Fargo Security Features

Help ensure the authenticity of your ID cards. Activate any or all of these comprehensive applications for the appropriate level of print security that your organization needs.

Password Control

The first line of defense against unauthorized printing.
Unfortunately, the threats to your organization's security are not limited to external sources. In fact, internal breaches to your photo id system's security may be even more dangerous as they are often harder to detect. Password Control helps reduce both internal and external threats of fraud or misuse by automatically disabling a stolen or illegitimately accessed id card printer. When combined with Print Notification, it offers an effective deterrent to unauthorized users or counterfeiters. Password Control is an ideal solution to help protect against hard-to detect internal security breaches. Users can alter the frequency of the password prompts to suit their printing and security needs.

Print Notification

Provide around-the-clock integrity of your id card printer.
Counterfeiters thrive on moments of opportunity when organizations may let their guard down. Nights and weekends can be an especially attractive time, offering access to unguarded card printers. Print Notification is a powerful 24-hour-a-day, seven-day-aweek tool that protects the security of your id card system. Unauthorized id card printing - even if the appropriate passwords are provided - can trigger an instant notification via e-mail or text message, alerting you or your staff of the breach. An instant e-mail or text message notifies a system operator of an unauthorized print event. Fargo Print Notification allows users to customize the authorized hours of a printer's operation.

Security Imaging

Covert features add a vital layer of security to photo id cards.
Security Imaging takes the security of your card identity system to a higher level. Using Fargo Secure Fluorescing Ribbons, Security Imaging allows organizations to add covert security features to their id badges. Your custom logo and a unique covert number present an additional hurdle to counterfeiters. These features not only play an important role in preventing fraud, they can provide insightful forensic data, including the date, time and location a confiscated id badge was printed.

Print Diagnostics

Quickly assess and fix id card printing issues.
You and your staff shouldn't need to be technicians to effectively operate and maintain a card identity system. Print Diagnostics provides a fast and easy way to gather and share printer diagnostic information with your authorized Fargo SecureMark integrator. By using this efficient application, a majority of printer issues can be quickly and conveniently handled via the phone or e-mail.

PID Card Supplies e-Ordering

ID Card supplies are a convenient click away.
Never be caught without the supplies you need. ID Card Supplies e-Ordering alerts you when your printer is low on supplies and provides a direct online link to your authorized Fargo SecureMark integrator. With the click of a mouse, your SecureMark-protected supplies are on their way.
