Accellion announced the “first secure mobile printing solution” for iOS and Android devices, the Accellion Mobile App with embedded printing technology.
Accellion is partnering with Ricoh to offer the new application in conjunction with Ricoh’s HotSpot Enterprise software. Businesses and organizations would need to install the HotSpot Enterprise Solution on-site and then have the IT department register the necessary printers with the print server and add LDAP authentication for access to printing to marked printers.
Employees can then download and login into the Accellion Mobile App, type in their network credentials and print to any of the authorized printers. Employees can avoid logging into the VPN or sharing passwords, even if they work in a different branch/office.
A variety of files and images can be accessed for printing, download or upload using the app including Microsoft Office documents, PDFs, SharePoint, email and 3rd party applications. However, admins can restrict outside applications so that employees aren’t printing content unrelated to the business.
The Accellion Mobile Apps are available today and support Apple iOS v5.1 or later, Android OS v2.2 or later. Learn more at Accellion.com.
