SECURE CLOUD PRINTING FOR BUSINESS

Cloud services can transform how today‘s businesses work, optimizing processes while reducing capital spending. uniFLOW Online is a secure cloud-based printing solution for small and medium sized businesses designed to manage entire print environments. The solution aims to reduce overall printing costs and increase security.
     

UNIQUE UNIFLOW TECHNOLOGY COMBINED WITH AN INNOVATIVE CLOUD PLATFORM

One Single Print Queue
The uniFLOW Universal Driver provides a single print queue that users can print their jobs to regardless of the printer model being used. Print jobs are encrypted and compressed as they are sent directly from the client PC to the printer.

Local Processing of Print Jobs
It’s an innovation in enterprise printing. Installed directly on the PC, the uniFLOW SmartClient processes the user’s print jobs and keeps them safe until they are released.

Control Device Authentication
The Universal Login Manager is installed directly on the Canon MEAP enabled multifunctional device and communicates directly with uniFLOW Online and the uniFLOW SmartClient. It controls the device authentication process and shows the list of print jobs available to the user.

 

ONLY JOB LOG DATA IS STORED IN THE CLOUD

  • Print securely without the need for a local server
  • Print jobs and print job information are stored locally on the client's PC
  • Network print jobs remain within the organization's network

 

Features

Flexible Authentication
  Document security is preserved as a user has to be physically next to a device to gain access to their personal secure print queue. To release print jobs, users simply authenticate using their company proximity card or by entering a PIN code on the screen of the Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE.
   
Print Confidential Documents Securely
  With uniFLOW Online, users are able to print confidential documents securely. All print jobs stay in a users’ personal secure print queue until the user authenticates at a device and releases them. Print jobs follow users from device to device, allowing the release of print jobs on a printer of their choosing. Users can also alter finishing options directly at the device before printing.
   
Send Print Jobs from Anywhere
  Regardless of location, users can use their smartphones or tablets to print documents securely. All submitted jobs appear in a user’s secure print queue and are accounted for, charged and managed correctly.
   
Track Print, Scan, and Copy Costs
  uniFLOW Online allows administrators to track their organization’s printing, copying, faxing, and scanning costs, enabling the allocation of costs to a user or department. The uniFLOW Online dashboard displays all valuable information regarding the organization’s print, scan, and copy environment. In addition, different reports can be created to give detailed user, device, and sampling summaries.
   
Cloud-based Infrastructure
  Using uniFLOW Online’s innovative technology, there is no requirement for a local server. All configuration and management of the system takes place in the cloud, providing administrators online reporting tools and dashboards. For normal print operations, continuous connection to uniFLOW Online is not even required.
   

 

 

Benefits

Prevent Unauthorized Use of the Device
  uniFLOW Online enables administrators to restrict printer access to authorized users only. This prevents any breaches of data and misuse, as the device is locked so that print, scan, copy, and fax functionalities are unavailable to unauthorized visitors or employees.
   
Increase Document Security
  Protecting information is a key to any data loss prevention policy. Should sensitive information such as contracts on staff payroll find its way outside an organization, its reputation and brand image are likely to be damaged and it could incur heavy fines. Using a single driver, uniFLOW Online enables users to print confidential documents securely using any connected device.
   
Improve Office Productivity
  uniFLOW Online enables employees to print from mobile devices giving greater flexibility in office workflows. As well as facilitating new working processes, the print infrastructure provides enhanced support so users can retrieve print results faster and easier. Print jobs can also be modified on demand before being released, saving valuable time.
   
Gain Control over Costs
  The volume of printing that occurs in an office can be surprising. One of the best ways to cut unnecessary costs is to ensure users print only what they need. uniFLOW Online‘s serverless print management solution helps administrators take complete control of printing and copying activities. It can highlight expenditure by users/departments and pinpoint areas where costs can be scaled down. Thanks to its unique technology, immediate financial benefits are realized by the elimination of local print servers and reducing the burden on IT departments.
   
Reduce the Impact on the Environment
  uniFLOW Online can help to reduce environmental impact and support sustainability initiatives by optimizing printing procedures and improving internal processes that rely heavily on paper. This solution prevents unnecessary paper waste as users can only print what they need. Finishing options can be changed at a device before printing, saving reprinting and false output. uniFLOW Online can help reduce power consumption of the print infrastructure by eliminating ‘Always On’ print servers across an entire organization.
