Secure Follow Print
Improve security, reduce waste and remove USB printers by allowing users to authenticate and collect their printouts at any printer.
Unless the user immediately fetches the printer output, printing is a potential source of information leakage. Furthermore, if there is a glitch, the print job may get stuck in the queue and print at a later stage, fully visible to the world.
With Follow Print, documents are released only after your authentication at the printer. You can collect jobs at your leisure at any enabled printer.
Improving availability further, Cirrato's Follow Print Redundancy mode lets you print directly if the server cannot be reached.
Authentication essentially eliminates the risk of documents sitting in the output tray and falling into the wrong hands.
People often forget to pick up print jobs, leaving a pile of uncollected paper next to the printer. With Cirrato Follow Print, customers report a total paper consumption reduction of up to 40%.
Remove Local Printers
The solution of choice to handle sensitive material in an organization is often to directly attach expensive desktop printers. With Follow Print, USB printers can be removed, privacy maintained and output quality enhanced, particularly with shared, multi-function printers.
