ThinPrint’s ezeep product will fully meet the requirements for Windows Virtual Desktop and enable a secure and easy connection to existing print infrastructure.
(BERLIN/DENVER, May 9, 2019) – ThinPrint, provider of the world’s leading print management software, and a selected launch partner for Windows Virtual Desktop, is announcing the details of its print solution designed specifically for Windows 10 multi-session desktops hosted on Azure.
At the Ignite Tour in Amsterdam, Microsoft launched the much-anticipated public preview of Windows Virtual Desktop – its comprehensive service for cloud-based desktop and app virtualization. General availability is currently expected for July. Windows 10 multi-user is optimized for Office 365 and will be offered exclusively via the Azure Cloud. A secure and easy-to-use service that perfectly integrates with Windows Virtual Desktops is essential to enable users to connect their local printers with Windows Virtual Desktop, support printing for mobile and home office employees as well as manage print environments and policies.
“The Azure Cloud offers companies many advantages, especially in terms of scaling their environment. We decided to build our Windows Virtual Desktop printing solution based on our proven ezeep cloud printing product – enhanced with two decades of proven ThinPrint technology” said Charlotte Künzell, CEO of ThinPrint. “Customers can easily manage their printing processes, without having to worry about the security of their print jobs, high availability, printer drivers or the day-to-day operation of print servers.”
To achieve this, ThinPrint will soon offer a version of ezeep, fully optimized for printing Windows Virtual Desktop. This can be simply installed via the Azure Marketplace and is immediately available to the entire organization thanks to the seamless integration with Azure Active Directory. The printers are connected via the ezeep Connector and network printers can be quickly and easily integrated with the ezeep Hub. The solution establishes a secure connection to its print service without the need for a VPN. Administrators can centrally manage print settings via a clear web console with users having the option to make specific settings via an intuitive self-service portal.
“After ezeep’s quick setup, users have secure access to all their printers at any time, regardless of the end device and whether they are network printers in the company or local printers in the home office,” said Christoph Hammer, Senior Vice President of Cloud Services at ThinPrint. “The design, which is harmonized with Windows Virtual Desktop, ensures a perfect user experience.”
