According to Technavio analysts, one of the key global document scanner market drivers is the enhancement of data security owing to the use of document scanners:
Global document scanner market: Enhancement of data security owing to the use of document scanners
Paper documents are usually stored in cabinets because of which they can be easily accessed and tampered with. However, a document can be easily encrypted, backed up, and tracked if the document is scanned. This will enhance the security of the data. The scanned documents can also be shared and utilized securely within the systems such as the enterprise customer relationship management, HR system, account package, and Sharepoint.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on computing devices, “Paper documents are vulnerable to floods, fires, and other natural as well as manmade disasters. The recovery of the document can be made easier by scanning the document. The scanned documents can be backed up in hard drives or can be protected electronically with an e-vaulting solution. This will lead to an increase in the adoption of document scanners among enterprises.”
