Do you have guests or contractors on-site trying to print as well? Rather than grant guests network access, you can extend Cloud printing to them. Guest printing can be enabled via the public or private Cloud. A public Cloud solution such as Print Cloud
lets guests email their print jobs to the Cloud, and in exchange they receive a release code that can be entered at any enabled device to retrieve their prints. In this case, you’re using a hybrid Cloud network – both public and private Clouds are leveraged to enable communication between mobile devices and printers.
However, if concerns exist about any information leaving the premises, you may want to enable guest printing via the private Cloud inside your network instead. With a solution like HotSpot Enterprise, you could simply set up a different email address for guests to use to send their prints to the private Cloud. This keeps guest print jobs separate from internal user jobs, while still keeping guests inside your firewall.
With the availability of private, public or hybrid Cloud printing solutions, you can now offer a printing method to guests and employees alike that eases their connection frustrations and meets your company’s security needs.
