Meeting Data Security and Compliance Requirements with Printix (Security)

A quick summary of the data security and compliance requirements with Printix

Technology is offering the modern enterprise new ways of working. Cloud-computing has extended the reach of our offices and our staff allowing us to work more productively. Our enterprise print environment has entered the era of cloud and is part of the extended infrastructure of our business.
