A Choice: Unmonitored Direct IP Printing
All bank IT departments are concerned with issues of speed or server outages that impact the ability to print. One way to address this is by eliminating servers from their print process and using direct IP printing. Though this method is quicker, it can put sensitive financial data at risk. There is sometimes a lack of auditing as well, since direct IP printing typically stores no record when jobs are sent from a workstation to a remote printer. Especially in an industry with stringent compliance rules, this is not a desirable situation.
However, with customer experience being the main focus, those remote offices with poor WAN connectivity often resort to unmonitored direct IP printing. LRS software offers a Direct IP printing alternative that provides centralized monitoring and auditing, so companies can provide responsive customer service without sacrificing security.
