Document Management on the Hard Disk
Documents that are stored on the hard disk can be quickly
searched and accessed from the front panel display or through a
network scanner. With the touch of a few buttons, you can
choose one of four ways to distribute your scanned documents.
Scan to HDD sends scanned images to the AR-M351U/N’s hard
originals at up to 60 pages per minute (Standard mode).
You can save processed job data in designated folders on the

DOCUMENT SECURITY
Sharp’s Layered Security Approach Protects Your Business at Every Level
With multiple levels of network and data security to restrict access to electronic documents and ensure
that unauthorised personnel cannot get hold of valuable data, users have peace of mind knowing they
can safely copy, print, and scan documents in any business environment.
Data Security Kit
Secure Data Storage for Document Filing
Digital copier/printers or multifunction products can retain
hundreds of pages of confidential information from previous jobs
With the Data Security Kit installed, all data that goes through the
AR-M351U/N’s hard disk is encrypted. Combined with the PIN
on their hard disk or internal memory. To prevent these sensitive
records from being recovered by unauthorised persons, the
AR-M351U/N can be equipped with the optional Data Security Kit,
codes in the Advanced Filing function (see page 6), this system
ensures solid security to protect your important business
information.

Secure Print Server Card
The AR-M351U/N’s IP/MAC address filtering function provides
highly secure operation by restricting access to the AR-M351U/N
on your office network. Only PCs that have either their IP address
or MAC (media access control) address registered are allowed to
use the AR-M351U/N. Attempted access from an unknown IP or
MAC address will be denied, preventing unauthorised use.
The network port/protocol management function makes it easy
to disable unnecessary protocols and vulnerable ports, such as
Telnet, JCP, and RARP, to eliminate the threat of unauthorised use,
password leakage, and unlawful IP addresses. Thus, the AR-M351U/N
greatly reduces the risk of both internal and external threats.

To keep others from seeing confidential documents as they are
being printed out, the AR-M351U/N’s Print Hold function stores
print data on internal memory* and withholds output until the user
executes a print command from the operation panel. For added
security, the Confidential Print function requires the user to enter
in a PIN (personal identification number) at the machine before
printing can begin.
*On the AR-M351U, data is saved to printer memory, and on the AR-M351N
