In the ever-changing world of digital workplaces and educational institutions, protecting sensitive data is essential. A busy collaborative space or a vibrant educational environment requires efficient printing solutions that are secure. This is where ezeep Blue comes in, with a mix of strong features and enhanced security to keep your printouts safe. But why should you choose ezeep Blue?

Printing security matters

Contrary to popular belief that digitalisation has made printing obsolete, there is still a high demand for hard copy documents. However, this comes at the risk of exposing such data to unauthorised parties. It is not enough for modern printer options to offer basic functionality, they must secure every page printed. This is where ezeep Blue excels, offering great usability as well as an effective and robust secure printing experience.

Key security features of ezeep Blue

ezeep Blue is designed to address critical security concerns in today’s printing environments. Here are three key features:

  • Encrypt print data in transit: Using industry-standard TLS 1.3 encryption, ezeep Blue ensures that all print data transferred between the user’s device and the ezeep servers is securely encrypted. This method protects the data from eavesdropping and unauthorised access, maintaining the confidentiality and integrity of documents in transit. For more information, please visit our Print Security page.
  • No direct printer access: By restricting printer access to only the ezeep Hub or ezeep Connector, ezeep Blue eliminates the risk of unauthorized direct connections from the internet. This approach significantly enhances security by ensuring that all printer communications are managed through secure, controlled channels, thereby reducing potential entry points for hackers and malware. For more information, please visit the ezeep Hub page.​
  • Secure printing feature with pull print option: Secure printing with pull print option: This feature ensures that print jobs are stored in a secure cloud queue until the user is physically present at the printer to release them, reducing unauthorised access and data breaches. It provides an additional layer of security by requiring user authentication, either via a smartphone app or RFID card, before documents are printed. For more information, please visit our Secure Pull Printing page.

Benefits of upgrading your print solution

Moving to ezeep Blue has many benefits beyond security. Here is what you can expect:

  • Leverage all the features of your printer: ezeep Blue reads the printer driver properties installed on the ezeep Blue Connector or in the cloud and makes all available features available to the user.

For more information, please visit our Post about Leverage All Your Printer’s Features.
  • Print faster: ezeep Blue uses print job streaming and proprietary compression algorithms to allow print jobs to start in a matter of seconds.
