Konica Minolta simplifies print management for the modern workplace with PaperCut Hive

London, UK | 13 December 2022

Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd announces the launch of its cloud-native, fully embedded print management software - PaperCut Hive – which is ideal for any business that needs a secure and flexible printing solution to track, control, and enable print, copy, and scan. PaperCut Hive makes printing easy by enabling secure printing from any device (desktop PC, laptop, tablet, or smartphone).

An ideal print management solution for hybrid, distributed and agile working environments, PaperCut Hive enables documents to be securely sent to any device, from the office, home or anywhere, to be produced on-site, only once the owner has authenticated.

PaperCut Hive removes the complexity that has crept into printing infrastructure as a result of new ways of working, an array of new print capable devices, multiple operating systems and many different device manufacturers. These all contribute to making what should be a simple task into a challenge for both the person wanting to print and those managing the process.

The highest level of security is ensured using Find-me Print and Edge Mesh that securely ‘holds’ print jobs until they are collected from the printer by the authenticated owner. This zero-trust approach protects data before, during, and after the document is sent to a device. Furthermore, optional watermarking and digital signatures can be appended to ensure every job can be traced back to its origin.
In addition to removing complexity, adding flexibility, and strengthening security, PaperCut Hive’s serverless approach saves time and money, by removing the need to manage complex infrastructure. It also enables eco-friendly policies to be introduced that promote responsible and sustainable printing that optimises production to reduce paper and toner/ink wastage.
Phillip Jon added, “Print management should not be a one-size-fits-all approach and Konica Minolta is committed to providing its customers with choices that meet their specific requirements, whether that be an on-premise or cloud-native solution.”
