ThinPrint Launches the First Managed and Secure Mobile Printing Solution for Businesses

Grazed from ThinPrint

Print management expert, ThinPrint, today announced the availability of its new product ThinPrint Mobile Print. The new software enables companies to integrate iOS and Android devices into their existing print infrastructure so that employees can easily access and use all current network printers. User authorizations are automatically inherited from the Microsoft Active Directory or from the print server and can be additionally extended or restricted as required for mobile users. ThinPrint's close cooperation with the leading mobile device management (MDM) providers ensures seamless interaction for companies with enterprise mobility management (EMM) systems in use. The included secure pull-printing feature, which allows users to authenticate themselves directly at the printer, rounds off the solution perfectly.

Many companies use an MDM or EMM system to securely manage their mobile devices and distribute apps. However, if employees want to print with their iPads, iPhones or Android devices, they quickly reach the limits of mobile productivity. The new ThinPrint Mobile Print software is the solution. It can be integrated into EMM or MDM systems to enable secure mobile printing with iOS and Android devices. Employees can print from iOS and Android apps on their tablets and smartphones to any existing network printer in the enterprise, regardless of which printer models from which manufacturer are in use. The existing user rights are inherited from the Microsoft Active Directory (AD) or from the print servers but can be modified if required.
