Secure Cloud Printing For Microsoft Office 365 And Azure – White Paper
This white paper outlines practical considerations in achieving a secure cloud printing infrastructure for Microsoft Office 365 and Azure Cloud environments.
Since its release back in 2012, demand for Microsoft Office 365 productivity software has grown exponentially as organizations worldwide enjoy the freedom of transferring responsibility for managing servers and applications to a Cloud based service model. The Microsoft Azure platform takes that one stage further offering an open and scalable Cloud computing platform as a service, providing a highly available Virtual Machine (VM) Cloud service payable on a monthly fee. For subscribers, critical services and server functions can now be moved with relative ease but what about printing, how realistic is that? Users are struggling with print file sizes and resultant bandwidth issues, not to mention security and compliance concerns. This paper explores the topic further and considers what happens when subscribers elect to migrate everything, including print servers, offsite into the Cloud and pitfalls to avoid.
