Printix Security

Taking Management Out of Print Management

Printix is a multi-tenant cloud or network based service that enables customers to securely print from their mobile phone, tablet or computer to any printer.
It automatically manages the print infrastructure and provides valuable insight into printing costs.

Network-based Systems Security

Printix print jobs are not actually sent to the Printix cloud. For security documents remain on your local network. Printix does the print management part in the cloud but all print traffic stays within your company network.

In traditional print server architecture, documents remain secure on the network. The Printix server-less solution uses peer-to-peer architecture, to provide the same document security. The Printix client software allows print jobs to be processed and stored on users’ local computers rather than being sent via the internet to a cloud-based service. Documents are encrypted and stored locally until they expire and/or get deleted. As Printix does not store any print jobs, accounting data and configuration details are the only information sent outside the company network. This data enables Printix to centrally manage your print environment whilst ensuring your document confidentiality.

In order for Printix to help manage your printers and provide Management Information via its Cloud, it must logically collect and register essential technical information about your printers, computers, users and documents.

For documents, Printix must register: Name, Number of pages, Colour, 2-sided, and where and when it was submitted, printed, restored and deleted. For security the documents are encrypted and stored locally and they do not leave your network. The document names can only be seen by the owner of the document.

Cloud-based Systems Security

Printix is a multi-tenant cloud-based service that enables customers to securely print from their mobile phone, tablet or computer to any printer. It automatically manages the print infrastructure and provides valuable insight into printing costs

Printix_Cloud

Like any Cloud based system users are required to register and sign in. Only authorised users will have access to Printix after following the security procedures for the installation

  • With Azure/Office 365 authentication enabled, users’ passwords are handled entirely by Azure
  • With Active Directory authentication enabled, users’ passwords are not stored by Printix, but can be transferred securely via LDAPS to the local Active Directory server for authentication
  • For users that authenticate directly with Printix, passwords are protected through salted password hashing. Users can reset password themselves

Microsoft pay particular attention to security which is why Printix has been approved by them as the first print management application to be listed on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace 

All Microsoft Cloud services, including Microsoft Office 365, use Azure AD as their identity provider. And because Azure AD is a Public Cloud Service, Printix capabilities in its print management cloud solution are particularly relevant. Printix developed its application to be integrated with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) to manage user access and enable single sign-on with both Printix Zero and Freedom. Now users can implement a true secure cloud-based workplace using Office 365 and Azure AD

  • Enterprise Single Sign-On – Azure Active Directory supports rich enterprise-class single sign-on with Printix out of the box. Users sign into Printix using their organizational accounts hosted in Active Directory
  • Easy Configuration – Azure Active Directory provides a simple step-by-step user interface for connecting Printix to Azure AD

Printix_Overview

Printix, with its Cloud-base and intuitive software design, provides a common automated print infrastructure which is

  • Flexible and scalable by design capable of handling hundreds of thousands of users and printers
  • Automatic software updates to eliminate the real security risk posed by obsolete drivers
  • Robust print environment to minimise any support element
  • No upfront investment you pay only for what you use each month
  • Eliminate print servers

Printix removes the labourious administration which printers create for your IT staff. In one simple solution Printix can organize a whole print environment. It puts all the details in one place, e.g. printers, computers, users, print jobs, help desk, consumption and usage

  • Install print drivers, ensuring that drivers are up-to-date and that old drivers are not prejudicing security
  • Create print queues
  • Deploy client software (silently)
  • Monitor printers and user printing behaviour
  • Supports Azure / Office 365 authentication (Microsoft Azure Certified)
  • Supports Citrix and Remote Desktop Services (RDS)
Printix provides the ability to print when you want from your smartphone, tablet or computer to any printer. It provides greater choice and flexibility, allowing you to save time, reduce costs and use less paper
  • Fully deployed in just a few minutes. Microsoft provide, as do GeDaP, a tutorial on integrating Printix with Azure AD making it a breeze
  • Supports all network printers
  • Automated print driver and queue install to minimise risk and save administratative effort
  • Print jobs do not leave your network, enhancing security
  • No printer specific software to install
  • No print server required, giving real financial and environmental savings

Printix provides a choice of three differing ways to print allowing users to choose the most convenient commensurate with the security of the document

  • You can opt to print immediately and directly to the selected printer which it is most convenient for you. This is suitable for documents with low security
  • Release and collect your documents at a dedicated printer. The perfect choice if you need to print confidential documents which require finishing options, and want to ensure your documents print exactly as you require
  • With the Printix Freedom printer, you can roam between printers and collect your document at any random printer within your Enterprise, releasing your documents using the Printix web app from any browser. Smartphones and tablets provide the ideal medium for authentication in today’s office
