Powerful printing solution enables secure, authenticated printing from any device to any printer inside or outside your corporate network regardless of geographic location.
KITCHENER, ON, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - PrinterOn®, the world's leading Mobile Printing Platform, has announced the release of PrinterOn Enterprise 1.9. PrinterOn Enterprise is a full-featured Mobile Printing Platform that ensures documents are printed and managed within the Private Cloud regardless of device, printer, network or geographic location. PrinterOn Enterprise is deployed directly on-site for organizations that require integrations with existing authentication and print management systems, extending and enhancing current infrastructure investments. Unlike other solutions, PrinterOn Enterprise does not require the use of external proprietary hardware to enable printing across disparate networks or guest printing from outside the corporate network. PrinterOn Enterprise 1.9 provides major enhancements and added features which meet the diverse mobile printing requirements within the Enterprise such as:
User Authentication for Mobile Printing Apps - Support for LDAP and Active Directory user authentication for the
PrinterOn iOS, PrinterOn Android and Ricoh HotSpot mobile printing
Server Clustering for Scalability - The ability to deploy in a clustered configuration allows for
additional capacity and redundancy to be added to your Enterprise
server in minutes.
Extended E-mail Print Support - Enhanced SSL/TLS security support and improved email print quality
allows for flexibility when integrating with email providers including
Exchange, Gmail and others.
New PrinterOn API for Print Management - This new API simplifies the exchange of advanced job-tracking
information with print management solutions from Ricoh, Equitrac and
other industry standards.
Consistent Printing Experience Increases Productivity for Mobile
A key differentiator of the PrinterOn Enterprise Platform is the consistent printing experience regardless of which device is being used or location of the user. The ability to print business documents not just in the office, but in public printing locations or at home is crucial. PrinterOn simplifies mobile printing by providing a common user interface across all Enterprise, Public and Home locations. This consistent user experience makes mobile professionals more productive wherever they may be.
Placing Mobile Users at the Center of the Solution While IT Departments
Stay in Control
With PrinterOn Enterprise, printing from smartphones and tablets is easy for users as well as accountable for IT departments. Apps are available for iOS®, Android® and BlackBerry® operating systems. Most applications are designed for integration with corporate authentication services such as LDAP and Active Directory and are tracked within the organization much like any other print job allowing IT departments to stay in control of the process. For desktop and laptop users, the PrintWhere® Driver makes frequent every day printing to local or remote printers outside the network quick and easy by taking advantage of the standard Windows File>Print workflow. PrintWhere can also be used with existing authentication services.
Harmonious Integration with Existing Print Management Services
PrinterOn Enterprise builds upon the traditional printing workflow by adding a mobile printing layer to tracking and auditing services that may already be in place. PrinterOn works in unison with solutions such as Streamline NX® from global technology company Ricoh, Equitrac®, Pharos or PaperCut and allows mobile users to access and print documents in a secure, seamless manner. Koji Miyao, Director, Mobile Strategy, Ricoh Americas Corporation said "The integration of Streamline NX and PrinterOn Enterprise enables Ricoh to provide a simple, seamless and managed infrastructure to our Enterprise customers that supports many printing scenarios in today's mobile workflow."
An Industry First - Non-Intrusive Mobile Printing Integration for ERP
Systems such as SAP® and Oracle®
An Enterprise that needs to print from SAP to a remote location such as another office, supplier or another country typically uses expensive dedicated VPN or leased lines to connect and print to those locations. This can be both cost and location prohibitive. The PrinterOn Connector for SAP allows users of SAP to print to remote printers using the standard print process within their SAP environment with no overhead cost. The solution supports a wide range of barcode, label, RFID and document printers.
"The PrinterOn Enterprise Platform is enterprise-grade by design and unrivaled in the industry," said Ken Noreikis, Vice President Sales & Marketing, PrinterOn. "We are a mobile printing leader because of our long term commitment to research and development investment and our considerable experience in the cloud printing industry. Every day, small businesses, educational institutions and the world's largest corporations use PrinterOn for their mobile printing requirements. This latest release only improves upon a platform which is already the most complete solution on the market today."

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
