According to an October 2011 report from research firm IDC, mobile printing is the fastest growing segment in the document solutions industry and is expected to grow from 68.3 million in 2010 to 1 billion in 2015. In response, Accellion, Inc., a provider of enterprise-class, secure mobile file sharing solutions, is offering a secure mobile printing solution which allows mobile employees to print the content they want, from the device they choose, whenever they need.
Designed to improving the productivity of a company’s workforce and optimizing the mobile workflow, the new solution - Accellion Mobile Apps for iOS and Android - features embedded printing technology. Organizations with Ricoh HotSpot Enterprise software and the Accellion secure mobile file sharing solution can print securely from any mobile device to any corporate printer without using a VPN.
The integration provides a secure and easy way to print enterprise content from mobile devices. Accellion’s private cloud solution maintains security within its mobile workflow. This prevents data leaks and keeps enterprise content secure.
Mobile workers can print a variety of Microsoft Office documents, PDFs and images to any corporate printer without needing a VPN. The capability also provides seamless integration with existing Active Directory/LDAP, ensuring only authorized users gain access to print resources.
How it works:
Organizations install Ricoh HotSpot Enterprise Solution on-premise to enable printing.
Once installed, organizations register specific printers to the print server. IT enforces LDAP authentication to print to enterprise printers.
To print a document, the user logins into the secure Accellion Mobile App, authenticates via LDAP using their corporate network credentials and then sees a list of authorized printers for printing.
