Focus On: What’s New

directprint.io releases Edge Print for Microsoft

directprint.io has expanded support for the Microsoft ecosystem with the release of Edge Print for Microsoft Azure. With Edge Print, end-users can print on their Windows PC, Chromebook, or Mac device – whether they’re at home, on a guest network, or even between different office locations.

Edge Print enables users to securely print when they are not on the same network as the printer. Printers remain on a secure network and cannot be exposed to vulnerabilities that are common with personal devices and home networks, while print jobs are kept within an organisation’s approved Google/Microsoft infrastructure, ensuring information remains safe and secure.

For IT administrators, Edge Print gives fine-grained control over which printers are available for remote printing, as well as full visibility into printers used outside of the corporate network. Plus, it’s easy to control which users can print remotely – thanks to Google Workspace and Microsoft Azure integration – IT leads can grant remote print user privileges drilling down to individual users, groups or devices.

This new update follows directprint.io’s integration with Azure AD and the serverless print management solution’s launch on the Azure AD Marketplace. This latest expansion signals the serverless print management company’s ongoing commitment to bring parity to its Microsoft integration vs its rich Google Workspace integration as it continues its ambitious growth plans for 2022. directprint.io supports over 5,000 printer models via Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 across Chrome, Windows, and Mac operating systems. www.directprint.io

Confidential printing

ThinPrint has announced a pull- printing feature for its ezeep Blue cloud printing solution.

ezeep-Blue-Pull-Printing

ezeep Blue now offers easy-to-set- up, platform- and vendor-independent user-authenticated printing thanks to its new pull-printing feature. It’s integrated into the intuitive ezeep Blue printing apps for Windows PCs, Macs, Google Chromebooks as well as iOS and Android mobile devices.

In the ezeep web console, the pull- printing feature can be enabled with just
a single click. Then, users only need to be assigned the printer ‘AnyPrinter by ezeep’ to use pull-printing. In parallel, QR codes are generated and can be attached to the printers. Once the user has initiated their print job via their app to the ‘Any Printer by ezeep’ printer, the print job is placed in the secure pull-printing queue. If the user goes to the printer of their choice and scans the QR code with their iOS or Android device, their personal printout starts directly at the printer. Additional authentications methods will be added soon.

New scanners from Kodak Alaris

Kodak Alaris has expanded its S3000 Scanner Series with the launch of two new models, the Kodak S3120 Max and Kodak S3140 Max.

Kodak Alaris S3000

The S3000 Max Series combine high- volume capacity with the simplicity and compact size of a desktop unit. Both scanners are ideal for document-heavy processes and make it easy to quickly and accurately convert paper-based information into business-critical data.

The S3000 Max Series delivers exceptional image quality, superior paper protection, versatile media handling capabilities, and faster capture speeds, plus three months of onsite, next-day service and support and extended service options to ensure maximum productivity.

These new models can capture up to 140 pages per minute (ppm), while on-board image processing enables independent operation and reduces
PC resources. RESTful Web API support delivers efficient document capture via the browser, with no software or drivers required. This makes it easy to integrate them into line-of-business applications, web-based scanning applications, and mobile devices.

The S3000 Max Series offers enterprise-class security features like Secure Boot, which validates firmware before it executes, and supports enterprise security protocols for scanning over networks, including TLS Encryption and HTTPS, which is easy to enable via the Kodak Alaris RESTful Web API. www.alarisworld.com
