What is Secure Pull Printing?
Secure Pull Printing, also known as Secure and PickUp Printing and Follow-me Printing, is a type of print security that requires users to authenticate at the printer before their job will print. This means that even if someone were to gain access to an unsecured printer, they would not be able to print any documents until they had first authenticated themselves. There are many different ways to authenticate at a printer, but the most common methods are through a badge reader, entering a PIN code, or using biometrics.
With Secure Pull Printing, business users print a document from their computers to a virtual print queue. The document remains in this secure queue until the user authenticates to a printer and collects it. Secure Pull Printing configurations usually involve having one large multifunction printer on each floor of an office building which multiple business users can use.
