ThinPrint Introduces Endpoint Print Management, Brings Mobile Printing to VMware Workspace ONE

Monday, August 27, 2018 — BERLIN/LAS VEGAS – ThinPrint today announced its Endpoint Print Management initiative at VMworld 2018. ThinPrint’s Endpoint Print Management can effectively deliver the missing piece to any Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) system by delivering the right solutions to flexibly provision and securely manage printing for any device.

Corporate printing often deals with highly-sensitive and timely information. However, due to traditionally complex print mechanisms and UEM systems being conceptually incompatible, professional endpoint management environments do not include efficient and secure management of printing environments.  As a result, too much time is spent manually managing printing through driver installations and unmanaged print servers; while users experience outdated, unreliable, slow and insecure printing.  To fully benefit from UEM, printing needs to be just as centrally manageable as the endpoints and adaptable to each organization’s specific needs.

“ThinPrint’s Endpoint Print Management completes any endpoint management strategy, and is the essential interface that keeps users and their digital tools and devices connected to the physical world,” said Henning Volkmer, ThinPrint, Inc. CEO. “A printed document remains a necessity, as it is the easiest to use and most versatile human interface for our digital applications. Endpoint management strategies without consideration for printing are inherently incomplete and will cost organizations significant time and money.”

When combined with a UEM solution, ThinPrint enables easy management of how employees print securely and quickly to the right printers, from any device, while delivering full control to an organization. ThinPrint fully supports individual printing requirements for remote and virtual desktops, PCs, Macs and mobile devices. No matter what your UEM solution looks like and which endpoints you are using, ThinPrint’s comprehensive portfolio of products offers a solution to meet all Endpoint Print Management needs. While the ThinPrint Engine, ThinPrint’s flagship product, cares for seamless, accurate, high-speed printing from server-hosted desktops to local endpoints mostly for service providers, ThinPrint’s new range of products fully concentrates on ease the daily work of IT administrators on site.

  • ThinPrint Hub is an endpoint print appliance itself that will be manageable via a web console soon and can also manage other endpoints, such as thin clients.
  • ThinPrint Mobile Print is a solution that manages on-premises printing from mobile endpoints and is a perfect fit for endpoint management systems like MobileIron, AirWatch/Workspace ONE and Citrix XenMobile.
  • ezeep Dash manages local printing for endpoints – starting with PCs and Macs – from the cloud.
  • ezeep is a complete cloud printing service for all endpoints like PC, Mac, Chromebook, smartphones and tablets.

Endpoint print management solutions can either be deployed as a private cloud or public cloud option and support any endpoints, such as Macs and PCs, Chromebooks, Android, iOS devices or thin clients. ThinPrint eliminates cumbersome driver installations and secures print data while stored or in transit, releasing it only upon authentication at the printer. Endpoint Print Management eliminates the need for costly infrastructure like VPNs and reduces IT cost through automation and user self service. Employees benefit from fast, reliable and secure printing no matter which endpoint they connect from, increasing productivity and reducing help desk cost in organizations of any size.

As the first and only provider of Endpoint Print Management, ThinPrint is opening up new cooperation opportunities with its long-standing partners, including VMware, Citrix and Microsoft, as well as new players like BlackBerry, IBM, Ivanti and MobileIron, who all position themselves under the UEM umbrella.

At VM World ThinPrint also announced the availability of its secure mobile printing solution, ThinPrint Mobile Print, for VMware Workspace ONE. Customers of Workspace ONE can leverage the solution’s management capabilities to easily open their organization’s printer infrastructure to its mobile users. It provides employees with the ability to seamlessly and securely access all network printers from their iOS and Android devices, fully in accordance with their assigned permissions.

ThinPrint’s Mobile Print solution is configured and distributed with VMware Workspace ONE, an intelligent digital workstation platform that delivers apps to a variety of devices, including iPhones, iPads and Android devices. Mobile users can access all network printers in their organization, no matter which printer model or manufacturer is in use. For IT departments, management is very simple. IT admins can easily adopt printer assignments and user rights from the Microsoft Active Directory, and if required, adapt them specifically for mobile use.

ThinPrint’s Personal Printing feature is also integrated in the solution for added document security.  It is used to ensure printouts are only outputted when the user authenticates directly at the printer. This feature not only ensures confidential printing of documents, but also significantly reduces printing costs.

“Strengthening our cooperation with VMware through ThinPrint Mobile Print is a decisive step in consolidating our leadership of the Endpoint Print Management market.” said Thorsten Hesse, CPO at ThinPrint. “Every VMware Workspace ONE customer can now integrate secure mobile printing processes into their infrastructure based on their Unified Endpoint Management solution – the final component for genuine mobile productivity in many organizations and scenarios.”
