Roaming Worker Printing & Scanning over the Public Internet

Internet Print and Scan for Roaming Workers

Now, as always, there are some employees who need to work from the field instead of the office. Through the use of mobile devices and fast wireless networks, these road warriors can often access the same critical business data they do while back at their desk. What they cannot do is print business-critical documents — where and when they are needed — in a secure manner.

For example, say a field representative needs to print a customer order or an expense form from a Cloud-based application. They access the system from their wirelessly-connected laptop, but the application will not allow the user to print to the printer at the airport business lounge for security reasons.
