Improve Industry Compliance


Pull (Secure Release) Printing helps us with that added security. Users can print without having to stop what they’re doing, then go to the printer and collect their printout when they’re ready. It’s a similar experience to private printing but a little easier to set up.”

From the White Paper

Universal Print security is a real issue because employees frequently print a document and then fail to retrieve it from the printer. What if they contain important or even confidential information? Who could see that information? Unfortunately, while IT professionals have used secure printing for a long time, many IT professionals struggle with making it easy enough for end users to encourage adoption.

Why are printers a security risk?

down chevron

According to a print security report by Quocirca, over two-thirds (68%) of organizations have experienced data losses due to unsecure printing practices in the past 12 months. Unsecured printers give cyber attackers a clear entry point into your company’s network and data. They’re often overlooked as points of entry and become even more vulnerable when new patches and updates aren’t immediately installed. Printers aren’t the only vulnerability in your print environment either. Printer servers are especially susceptible to attacks, as we’ve seen with print spooler vulnerabilities like PrintNightmare and SpoolFool.

Can print jobs be released when computers are offline?

down chevron

Yes. Whether you’ve closed your laptop or logged out of a virtual session, PrinterLogic’s Offline Secure Release feature allows Windows PC users and Off-Network Cloud Printing customers to initiate a print job and then release it at the printer even after their computer goes offline.

Is Secure Release Printing a standalone feature?

down chevron

No. PrinterLogic offers various bundles to enhance its Core functionality. Secure Release Printing is part of the Advanced Security Bundle which also contains Off-Network, Mobile App Print Release, and Concurrent IdP Support. 

Do I need to replace my old printers to boost security?

down chevron

No. That would waste too much time and money! Instead, PrinterLogic focuses on eliminating your print servers and the vulnerabilities associated with spooling. Removing legacy hardware like print servers and moving to PrinterLogic’s direct IP printing solution—fully compatible with universal printer brands—allows you to utilize all your network printers without having to replace them. Regarding Secure Release Printing, you can release print jobs from any network printer via our Mobile App Print Release feature—no CPA required.

PrinterLogic’s Off-Network Printing (ONP) feature maintains the security of organizations adopting Zero Trust Network Architecture while meeting their employees’ printing needs. Additionally, ONP allows remote employees, contractors, and business affiliates to easily print—even when they reside on different networks. Like Secure Release Printing, users can retrieve their print jobs from their desired printer or collaborate with someone in the office to release the job at their discretion.
