Canon & PrinterLogic Integration Allows for Serverless Printing with Security Features

MELVILLE, N.Y., AUGUST 15, 2019 – With security features now essential to most office solutions, Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, and PrinterLogic, a leader in serverless printing infrastructure for the enterprise, today announced the ability to integrate PrinterLogic’s platform with Canon’s third-generation imageRUNNER ADVANCE solutions.

“Security is top of mind to Canon as we continue to help prepare enterprises for the office of the future, which is why we consider this integration so valuable for our customers,” said Shinichi Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager, Canon U.S.A. Inc. “Through PrinterLogic, our users now have even more ways to print to and release from Canon solutions in a manner that can help users protect their confidential information, and PrinterLogic customers can similarly now take full advantage of the powerful imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform to enhance their print infrastructure and take advantage of a wide array of print security features.”

This new alliance will also enable Canon customers to benefit from PrinterLogic’s serverless platform, allowing them to deploy and manage printer drivers across a wide range of print environments and across an extensive array of devices and manufacturers, including the versatile Canon third generation imageRUNNER ADVANCE solutions.

“Canon’s customers can now fully benefit from PrinterLogic’s serverless, Secure Release printing capabilities,” said Noel O’Dwyer, vice president of strategic alliances at PrinterLogic. “Combining PrinterLogic's powerful printer and driver management solutions with Canon’s formidable solutions can result in improved experiences for customers.”

PrinterLogic’s integration with Canon also includes the following benefits:

●       Elimination of print servers. IT professionals can eliminate all print servers and centrally manage all compatible, networked printers from a single, central console, helping to increase reliability while using security features and helping to reduce print-related costs. End users can now install printers themselves without the need to call their help desk, freeing up company IT resources to tackle more critical issues.

●       Universal printing functionality. PrinterLogic’s platform works with all manufacturer printer drivers. This includes built-in support for various Windows, Mac, Linux, and virtualized end-user workstations so users can enjoy full-featured, dependable printing, including mixed-OS environments*.

●       Ease of use. The PrinterLogic platform also provides users with the ease of use to quickly deploy, update, and configure drivers from a single, central console.

PrinterLogic’s integration with Canon’s third generation imageRUNNER ADVANCE solutions now affords users a new opportunity to achieve serverless and friction-free printing experience while using security features.
