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.
ThinPrint cooperated closely with leading MDM and file sharing providers in the development of its mobile printing solution to ensure its close integration into EMM/MDM solutions. Data is encrypted during transmission and print job generation takes place securely behind the firewall.
For additional security, a pull-printing function included in the license can be activated as required. Printing only starts once the owner of the print job authenticates directly at the printer ensuring that printouts are protected against unauthorized access. Instant Wi-Fi printing rounds off the software’s range of mobile productivity features.
“With ThinPrint Mobile Print, we’re closing an important gap when it comes to mobile productivity,” said Thorsten Hesse, CPO at ThinPrint. “We’re delighted that we were able to win nearly ten system houses specializing in enterprise mobility as launch channel partners right from the start and we look forward to expand this distribution network internationally.”
Launch channel partners include BFI, ABE, druckerfachmann.de, ibt, ISEC7, SCHIFFL and vleet.
