protect your business with
Sharp’s advanced security.
The right security for your business.
To help secure your electronic documents and
restrict access, the AR-M355/M455 IMAGERs
offer several levels of network and data security
protection. A leader in office equipment security,
Sharp enables IT professionals to safely deploy
digital copying, printing, scanning and faxing—in
any business or government environment.
• To protect your printed documents from
unauthorized viewing, the AR-M355/M455
IMAGERs offer a Confidential Print feature,
which requires users to enter a PIN code
in order to print their queued document
(Standard on N models).
• To protect your network from unauthorized
e-mail communications, the AR-M355/M455
IMAGERs support User Authentication which
requires users to log in before performing any
network scanning operations (Requires optional
AR-NS3 Network Scanning Kit).
• To protect your data, you can add the
optional Data Security Kit, which encrypts
document data using 128 bit encryption
(Including document filing area on N models).
Additionally, the Data Security Kit sanitizes the
memory in your AR-M355/M455 IMAGERs
by overwriting the encrypted data, offering
an unprecedented level of assurance.
These scalable security offerings aim to protect
your intellectual property, preserve confidential
information and assist you in meeting regulatory
requirements, such as the Health Insurance
Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and
the Gramm Leach Bliley Act (GLB). For additional
information visit
• To restrict access to the AR-M355/M455
IMAGERs on your network, the IMAGER Home
Page offers IP/MAC Address Filtering and
protocol control (Standard on N models).
IP/MAC Address Filtering on the IMAGER Home
Page enables you to restrict access to the IMAGER.
User Authentication requires users to log in to the machine before performing any network
scanning operations, protecting it from unauthorized scanning and e-mail communications.
get the facts
How are networked MFPs vulnerable?
Whenever pages are printed, copied, scanned or
faxed, your Digital IMAGER MFP retains data in
the internal memory, which can be retrieved by
unauthorized personnel just like the data on any
PC’s hard disk. Additionally, internal users who have
unrestricted access to the IMAGER, or even sensitive
documents inadvertently left in the paper tray, can
lead to security breaches and information leaks.
Is your confidential information vulnerable?
Yes. Whether it’s personal or financial information,
health records, or protecting sensitive corporate
data, it’s critical to deploy a solution that provides
heightened security and minimizes risk. Plus, with
new federal regulations regarding privacy and
confidentiality, information and document security
have become a high priority for every business.
Get the security solutions you need along with the
outstanding reliability you expect—with Sharp’s
new AR-M355/M455 Digital IMAGERs.

it really is that easy.
Powerful and flexible network scanning
Share documents across the network or across the
world with versatile scan functionality. With Sharp’s
ImageSEND feature, the AR-M355/M455
IMAGERs truly become the document distribution
hub of the workgroup—providing both input and
output capabilities. To scan, simply load your
document into the Duplex Single-Pass Feeder, and
then send your files directly from the IMAGER’s
control panel to six different destinations—Send to
Desktop, Send to E-mail, Send to FTP, Send to
Group, Send to Fax and Send to i-Fax. ImageSEND
allows for a truly digital workflow, providing incredible convenience, speed and increased efficiency.
Innovative document filing
Designed to be the center of the workgroup, the
new AR-M355/M455 N model IMAGERs offer
Standard Document Filing. A robust Hard Drive
with 16 GB of document filing space can store
frequently used files like forms and templates. With
up to 20,000 pages of storage capacity, everyone
on the network can share and access documents
in a snap. Plus, enhanced security features require
users to enter a PIN number to access secure
folders—protecting your sensitive data.
Convenient LDAP support
With innovative LDAP support (Lightweight Directory
Access Protocol), there’s no need to manually enter
a recipient’s address. Simply enter the first few
characters of the address and the AR-M355/M455
IMAGERs automatically search and display a list of
matching names. And to reduce the risk of unauthorized scanned documents being e-mailed, integrated
User Authentication requires users to log in before
searching for an address and sending an outbound
e-mail (Requires optional Network Scanning Kit).
Unique file naming
The new AR-M355/M455 IMAGERs also support
Unique File Naming, giving you the ability to enter
specific filenames with customized message and
subject fields (Requires optional Network
Scanning Kit).
Intelligent Application Integration
To help you manage your workflow, Sharp’s flexible
Application Integration Module allows you to add
information fields to your scanned documents, thereby automating tasks that once took several steps. This
information is passed along with your document to
an integrated application, enabling you to initiate
your workflow right from the the AR-M355/M455
IMAGERs touch-screen panel.
Standard built-in document filing makes it easy to share and
store your scanned files. Up to 20,000 letter-size pages can
be stored.
With LDAP, users only need to enter the first few characters of the
destination e-mail address—so sending a file is incredibly quick.
Unique File Naming makes it easy for the recipient to
recognize e-mailed documents.
