In our last article, we talked about how networked printers and imaging devices are becoming major targets for cybercriminals. We also showed how through a broad portfolio of HP JetAdvantage solutions and services, such as HP Sure Start, Whitelisting, and Run-time Intrusion Detection, resellers can keep customers’ printers safe and secure from network breaches.
But, what about the thousands of documents printed within your customers’ organizations every day? For many companies, once a document is printed, it is out in the open and available for anyone to see — or confiscate. With HP JetAdvantage, however, traditional “push printing” can be replaced with “pull printing” to create end-to-end print security.
Pull printing stores print jobs on a protected server, in the cloud, or on your PC. Users identify themselves with a PIN or other verification method at their chosen print location to pull and print their jobs. These security features, known as HP JetAdvantage Private Print, also eliminate unclaimed prints, which reduces cost and waste, and improves productivity by enabling users to retrieve and print where business demands. Plus, IT administrators can easily add or remove users via Active Directory. And, because HP JetAdvantage Private Print is a cloud-based solution, you get the advantages of pull print without the complexity. Setup is simple — no server to set up, no software to install, and nothing to be maintained.
For additional security, resellers can add HP Access Control Secure Pull Printing, a server-based solution offering multiple forms of authentication, including badge release, plus enterprise-level security, management and scalability.
Worried about the myriad of mobile devices that need access to printers? HP has that covered too. HP Access Control uses your customers’ existing email infrastructures to allow mobile users to email a print job to their print queue and then pull it from any solution-enabled printer or MFP. Additionally, HP ePrint Enterprise is a server-based mobile printing solution that makes it easy for employees to print from mobile devices to any registered printer on their enterprise networks, along with more than 30,000 HP ePrint Public Print Locations. The solution is easy to manage, scalable and secure. It preserves administrator control even in a BYOD environment, and it allows options for mobile device management (MDM) integration.
