PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Collobos Software has released version 2.5 of its Presto printing software.
Presto, first released in 2013, provides enterprises with secure, in-network printing for employees on a range of mobile and desktop devices. With a unified architecture, Presto is client- and printer-agnostic, bringing the same functionality to iOS, OS X, Android, and Chrome users, while minimizing the burden on IT personnel. Unlike other offerings on the market, Presto keeps all printing jobs in-network, removing the security risk and uncertainty introduced by cloud-based printing.
According to CEO Scott Herscher, “Enterprise printing is broken. From usability issues to networking problems to the cost of secure release hardware and maintenance of embedded firmware, it's become a nightmare for IT departments. Presto's technology solves these problems.”
Presto 2.5 offers a complete enterprise print solution, including mobile printing, printing from Windows and Mac OS X with built in drivers for centralized pull printing, and secure release management.
The new release includes Presto Station, which turns virtually any printer and tablet into a secure release station. Presto Station is part of the Presto mobile app, and is available at no additional cost. This is quite different than other solutions on the market that typically require custom embedded firmware running on the printer, and authentication hardware such as card or PIN code readers. Many organizations that would like to implement secure print release but have been reluctant to do so due to the cost will be very interested in Presto Station.
Presto 2.5 comes standard with support for Active Directory. Additional directory services are supported through flexible directory provider plug-ins. The directory provider plug-in framework supports username/password, PIN code, and IP address authentication.
To benefit organizations with temporary or transient users—such as hospitality businesses and libraries—the Presto Everywhere feature enables a browser based alternative to installing an app. Presto Everywhere gives users the power of Presto through a URL or QR code.
Collobos Software is committed to providing true cross-platform support for printing, rather than the mere promise of it. Presto 2.5 is the most advanced enterprise printing software on the market.
