Home Office Printing & Scanning over the Public Internet

Internet Print and Scan for Home Offices

Many organizations have begun to allow or require employees to work for home for business, health, or cost-reduction reasons. While cloud-enabled business applications help, most home offices lack the necessary infrastructure to print sensitive documents across the public Internet in a secure, responsible manner. VPN software and hardware addresses some of these concerns, albeit with added cost, complexity, and bandwidth concerns.

How can you ensure the security of sensitive print traffic across the public Internet to users working from home?

LRS® Internet Printing lets you leverage robust encryption, an industry-leading authentication framework, and other security measures to  establish a lightweight, Internet-connected IT landscape without costly WAN expansion or reliance on VPN software and hardware.

Support every print/scan feature and function available in your current on-premise corporate network environment while enabling the connection between your data center, print devices, and users’ computing devices to be via the Public Internet.

Result? Lower infrastructure costs, far less complexity, and greater IT flexibility. All without sacrificing the security and integrity of your business-critical documents.
