  • 3. Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2014 There are several disadvantages to VPN that are compounded by security issues:  VPN connections consume IT support resources  Administrating and infrastructure of VPN services can be relatively expensive.  The head organization may not have control over satellite office / end user systems – creating additional vulnerabilities. Security Issues with VPN
  • 4. Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2014 OM Plus i-Sat  OM Plus i‐Sat includes a small application for the remote location that uses cloud enabled, secure web services to "pull" print jobs from the host application without the vulnerabilities of a VPN connection.  No VPN connection is required.
  • 5. Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2014 How i-Sat Works  i‐Sat connects to an OM Plus print server at the host location and requests its jobs.  These print jobs are then sent securely, encrypted and compressed via https to the i‐Sat at the remote site.
  • 6. Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2014 i-Sat Benefits  No remote user's system becomes part of the host environment (unlike a VPN). This effectively protects the host system from VPN-related vulnerabilities.  Reduced overhead associated with VPN  Reduced network bandwidth usage  Print statistics provided  Low cost  Print pulled securely over the internet  Reduced cost (VPN + Administrative)  Audit logs provided  Easy to install & implement  Supported on Windows, UNIX & Linux
  • 7. Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2014 i-Sat is available in multiple versions to suit your needs:  i-Sat: provides a secure / encrypted remote printing solution that pulls print jobs down from the host location and then uses the native spooling system’s queues to deliver them to the printer.  i-Sat Plus: builds upon the base i-Sat capabilities by replacing the native spooling system at the remote site with OM Plus Delivery Manager – which provides enhanced spooling system functionality including document redirect, automated failover, delivery confirmation to the output tray, proactive alert notifications, and others.  i-Sat Embedded: runs as an embedded print server application in certified printers. It can pull down jobs and print them locally or pull down jobs for other standard printers and forward to them for printing.  i-Sat Appliance: is a headless appliance. It is “plug and play,” so no local setup is required. The i-Sat application can utilize the native spooling system or OM Plus Delivery Manager for delivering jobs to multiple printers. Available Versions of i-Sat
