HCP can be hosted in public cloud like Azure or AWS or within EveryonePrint cloud hosting platform. Customers always look for flexibility and security for such hosting choice which is very crucial from IT admin point of view. The following content will guide you about how HCP manages both security and flexibility in the same time.
The biggest privilege for choosing cloud for HCP solution opens up opportunity for the end users to connect the print cloud from anywhere and send print jobs in the cloud (ready to be printed within any location of the organization).
Thus, employees who travel much between offices of an organization also get benefit from the solution (no need to install any print driver except EveryonePrint global driver). Even users sitting at home can connect to cloud with or without VPN.
This leads to the next question - how secure is HCP communication to access from everywhere?
HCP uses TLS 1.2 encryption (SHA-256) algorithm to encrypt all possible way of communication between its components (primary server, access point, PC client and embedded terminal). Also, the print job at local access points and metadata in primary server are stored with encryption at rest (encrypted). Such a robust and secure architecture makes the solution absolutely safe from security point of view.
