FollowMe Branch Office Printing 

Recent reports indicate a 10% growth in branch office locations worldwide[1]. With distributed workplaces set to increase, organizations will continue to strive to better connect and centrally manage their branch office locations.  FollowMe version 6.2 brings flexible and cost-effective architectures to enable branch office printing environments with more capabilities and drive down the overall cost of printing.

Paper Data Loss Prevention 

With at least 80% of large enterprises reporting concerns of a paper-related security breach[2] and an expected increase of printer-related breaches due to mobile devices and remote workers, organizations should be considering solutions going well ahead of basic pull printing.  Although enterprise DLP offerings are already in place to monitor digital documents, content monitoring for print is mostly unmanaged.  FollowMe version 6.2 provides the ability to monitor printing, discover potential violations and prevent potential security breaches from occurring.

"Securing business and customer information is a top concern, as enterprises work to improve business operations for all office locations." says Eric Crump, Director of Strategic Alliances at Ringdale. "The latest FollowMe branch office and data loss prevention innovations will empower organizations to immediately overcome these challenges and extend company-wide improvements for document security, employee productivity and cost savings"


New Branch Office Printing and Data Loss Prevention capabilities are part of FollowMe version 6.2.  The solution will be available from August, through Ringdale authorized resellers worldwide.
