HP mobile print security

HP offers solutions to help you print easily and securely wherever business takes you.

With today’s mobile workforce, mobile printing is a growing need for companies and a growing security challenge. HP can help you print safely wherever business takes you.

Risks of unsecure mobile printing

When employees print from mobile devices in the office, at home, or on the go, printing security becomes a whole new challenge.

Exposed data—In an unfamiliar environment, employees may attempt “workarounds” to print the documents they need. This includes emailing documents to unauthorized users, storing data on unprotected flash drives, using personal email accounts, or even attempting to install unauthorized printer software and drivers.

Unprotected prints—Documents printed to a new printer or in an unfamiliar area are often left at the printer, unmonitored, for long stretches of time until the employee can retrieve them. Sensitive documents could be read or inadvertently picked up by someone else.

Setting a Strategy for Secure Mobile Printing—This white paper includes analyst research and HP analysis about the security concerns-and potential solutions-of mobile printing in enterprise businesses.

Secure printing in the office

Business travelers or employees can print safely and securely even when using an unfamiliar printer.

HP ePrint Enterprise—Mobile users can print securely using a smart phone and use keyword searches to find nearby printers in their enterprise network-no matter where they are at the workplace.*

And HP ePrint Enterprise can be configured to support access control and pull printing solutions for additional security. Pull printing encrypts and sends print jobs to a protected server. Once the user is verified at the printer, the job is pulled from the server and printed. Business travelers or employees can print safely and securely even when using an unfamiliar printer.

Secure printing on the go

How many printouts are currently sitting on your printer tray? All too often, printing goes to waste or ends up in the wrong hands. How can you protect your printed documents?

Employees on the road can locate a printer where life and business take them, while maintaining job confidentiality. Print jobs are held until you release them with an authorization code at the mobile print location.

HP ePrint Mobile Print Locations—An easy and secure way for on-the-go employees to print documents using a smartphone. Users just use the HP ePrint app to locate a nearby print location and hit print. A release code will be emailed to their smartphone for use at the printer to pick up their documents.

Secure printing at home

Telecommuters can turn their home printers into a secure extension of the office printing fleet.

With VPN, telecommuters can have a safe way to securely access documents on the company network and print them on their home printing devices, all while staying behind their company’s firewall. That’s because the print drivers reside on secure HP cloud servers. And HP LaserJet Pro and Officejet Pro telecommuter solutions are designed to leverage the remote monitoring and management capabilities of HP Web Jetadmin software.
