Printers produce the final output. uniFLOW Online ensures device security by requiring users to authenticate at the device before being able to access any of the device's features. Different authentication methods e.g. company proximity card, PIN code, allow this process to be flexible for the user.
Document security is preserved because a user must be physically at a device to gain access and release their print jobs or to use the available scan profiles. Users simply authenticate using one of the following options.
Registering an ID card with any user account is easy with uniFLOW Online. Card numbers can either be imported to uniFLOW Online or administrators authorize ID card registration. Users can then simply walk up to a device connected to uniFLOW Online and swipe their ID card above the card reader. Users will be requested to enter a PIN or a card registration code in order to finalize card registration.
There are several ways users can be imported to uniFLOW Online. uniFLOW Online can be connected to an existing data directory to import users from Office 365 or an active directory. Other possibilities include manual user creation or import from a CSV or XML file. Users can also self-register to uniFLOW Online; a whitelist of domains is created to allows users to register with their company email address.
uniFLOW Online does not provide its own identity management but, instead, accepts logon credentials from multiple identity providers. Credentials from Microsoft Azure Active Directly, Active Directory Federation Services or a locally hosted Active Directory® can be used for login. Facebook, Google, Yahoo!® or Windows Live credentials can serve as a channel to login as well. The primary security benefit of this identity management system is that uniFLOW Online does not store any user passwords. Despite this, provided the customer's own local Active Directory is connected, any password changes or user additions are automatically updated and recognized in uniFLOW Online.
