Press Release

Print Manager Plus 2010 is an Integral Part of Corporate and Institutional Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Systems
Palo Alto, California
07 July 2010
Loss of large volumes of protected corporate and institutional information continues to reach headlines forcing companies to re-issue security cards, send apologetic notifications to customers, settle up lawsuits and mitigate loss of confidence and goodwill from increasing negative publicity.

Many companies now fall under the oversight of government and commercial regulations that mandate controls over corporate and customer information. Some of these regulations stipulate routine information technology audits, which can fail if corporations and institutions lack sufficient data security controls.

Company reliance on enterprise resource planning ERP software can find compliance especially challenging and significant penalties continue to be mandated in the event of a breach.

Print Manager Plus 2010, from Software shelf International provides an additional level of security and data loss prevention and is used by some of the largest government agencies, corporations and institutions in the world.

The big hole in Data Loss Prevention has to do with uncontrolled and usually unrestricted printing according to Software Shelf CEO, Bill Feeley. Print Manager Plus 2010 fills this need and is the most robust and least expensive solution available on the market today.

Print Manager Plus 2010 can quickly set Quotas and Restrictions on a single or multiple users, user groups, and organizational units. Restrictions can be set directly on a printer or group of printers. Default settings can be turned on for new Users, and Printers added to the Active Directory.

According to Feeley, if a print job has been denied because of a preset data restriction or a printing quota has been met, Print Manager Plus 2010 can automatically be set to pause the print job or delete it. Pop-Up messages can then be automatically sent to the user's workstation explaining why the print job was denied and requiring the user to obtain authorization to continue.

New security related features enable easy compliance to regulations such as HIPAA security rules and similar rules of UK and European Data Protection regulations, as well as Sarbanes Oxley in the US.

Print Manager Plus 2010 not only makes printing 100 percent more efficient and secure, it enables fast, state of the art print controls and accounting, significant reductions of waste and increased cost savings all while dramatically lowering IT and hardware resource requirements and increasing Date Loss Protection for any organization.

Marking a milestone in the development of all print management solutions, Print Manager Plus 2010 eliminates the need to deploy complex and expensive hardware solutions. In fact, Print Manager Plus 2010 is the only fully functional all software solution available supporting all printers, plotters and multifunctional devices on the market today and all Microsoft, Macintosh, Unix, and Linux operating systems and it does so at a fraction of the cost of any other IT product available.

Print Manager Plus is a Green product featured by Guide Me Green as software that is saving 150,000 trees every month due to the paper savings it achieves for its customers.
