ThinPrint Launches ezeep for Windows Virtual DesktopOctober 7, 2019
ThinPrint, the enterprise print management expert, announced the availability of ezeep for Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD), its Azure-based cloud printing platform developed specifically for WVD users. ThinPrint, Microsoft’s exclusive launch partner for WVD printing, has launched its ezeep for Windows Virtual Desktop on the Azure Marketplace in line with the general availability of WVD.
With Windows Virtual Desktop, Microsoft’s Windows 10 is available as a multi-user version on Azure. As it runs exclusively in the cloud, all printers, including network printers, become remote printers. Developed as a result of ThinPrint’s successful partnership with Microsoft, ezeep provides the necessary connection between the on-premises printing infrastructure in the enterprise and the cloud as the industry’s only print solution for Windows 10 multi-session desktops hosted on Azure, it enables secure, fast and simple connectivity to existing print environments to deliver seamless printing from any device.
“We’re incredibly proud to be the chosen printing solution for Microsoft’s ground-breaking cloud service,” said Christoph Hammer, senior vice president for cloud services at ThinPrint. “More than 20 years of on-premises printing expertise and our experience in developing cloud solutions has been pooled together for the development of ezeep. The result is the very best enterprise printing solution for Windows Virtual Desktop users.”
With ezeep for WVD, the ezeep Print App is installed on the Windows Virtual Desktop instances. In order to make the locally connected printers available, the ezeep Connector is installed on users’ computers, on print servers or on the ezeep Hub, a plug-and-play print appliance. Within the easy-to-use administration console, the available printers are set up and assigned to groups. ezeep is fully integrated into the Azure directory, so no overlapping user administration is necessary. If a user logs in with their Azure access credentials, they can immediately use all printers assigned to them.
ThinPrint’s ezeep includes inherent compression and streaming technology that enables documents to be printed just as quickly as they would if using local printers. In addition, ezeep places significant importance on security – files sent to the ezeep server are transmitted via an encrypted connection and deleted from the server immediately after printing. The transfer of print data from the server to the client is also encrypted. At the same time, no ezeep employee can access or view the files printed via the ezeep cloud, and all files are securely sent via https. The ezeep solution supports all printers, regardless of manufacturer or model and is fully scalable, making it ideal for organizations ranging from SMBs to the largest enterprises.
ThinPrint’s ezeep for Windows Virtual Desktop is now available in the Azure Marketplace.
