Ricoh Updates Enhanced Locked Print NX
Ricoh's Enhanced Lock Print security solution helps businesses protect confidential and proprietary information.Printer maker Ricoh has updated its locked print security solution, Enhanced Lock Print NX v1.3. The new version, which protects an organization's confidential and proprietary information by allowing users to store, print and manage confidential documents with the security of user authentication at a multifunctional product, now adds the distribution and retrieval option of FlexRelease Server. ELP-NX helps an organization capture all the benefits of shared, centralized MFPs without compromising document security. With ELP-NX, users can protect specific documents by selecting "locked print" from the print-driver menu, while network administrators can set "locked print" as the default for organizationwide document protection. ELP-NX users enter their ID and password on the MFP at walk-up. This helps ensure documents won't be released by another MFP user or left unattended in output trays, where others can easily view sensitive information.
The FlexRelease Sever option builds on the FlexRelease technology first introduced in Enhanced Locked Print EX, which allows users to send print jobs to one MFP but securely release them on a secondary MFP. FlexRelease Server for ELP-NX goes a step further, allowing businesses to provide FlexRelease technology across their entire fleet of MFPs and printers. Using a flexible print architecture that stores print jobs centrally, businesses can approach any ELP-NX-enabled MFP or printer to access and retrieve their locked print jobs.
