What is Edge Print?

Now that Google Cloud print has been deprecated, you should be looking for a print management solution that supports printing from home, printing from guest networks, or printing between offices.

Do you want to enable remote printing while fully managing the visibility of printers outside of your network?

Do you have concerns about your document security when allowing remote printing?

Why Edge Print?

Edge Print enables users to print when they are not on the same network as the printer. Examples include:

  • Your printers are on a secure network that aren't exposed to BYOD devices or guest users.

  • Your printers are in a different location and not connected to the same network/LAN.

  • Homeworkers printing to the office or printing document between branch offices.

Print is considered to be one of the top security risks to any organisation. 66% rank print in their top 5 risks...
