The print life cycle describes what happens to a print job before, during and after printing.
- Before printing: secure your printing infrastructure (who can print, what they can print, etc.)
- During printing: secure print workflows (security of the printing process itself).
- After printing: secure printed output (protection of documents in the wild).
Secure central printing
Now that you are familiar with this, let’s explore the different security features and how they apply to the three stages of the print life cycle.
Key and advanced security features
These security features are classified as fundamental or advanced.
- • Fundamental security features are measures that every organization should implement.
- • Advanced security features are optional measures that you can implement for A+ security.
This table shows how you can implement the features in the print life cycle.
