FollowMe protects document confidentiality, by holding print jobs on a secure server, only to be printed by the owner, after they authenticate at the output device.

In order to implement the best security configuration for each infrastructure, FollowMe offers an extensive range of authentication options, from radio frequency ID (RFID) smart cards, contact smart cards, numeric keypads or biometric fingerprint readers. Most authentication methods integrate with existing business applications, supporting effective deployment and Single Sign On capability (SSO). FollowMe also has a wide embedded portfolio, providing a fully integrated solution on most manufacturers' multifunction printers (MFPs), where authentication is enabled directly from the device touch screen, without the need for external hardware.  This is also available for certain single function printers where readers can be attached directly.

To prevent unauthorized personnel intercepting data, whilst travelling to the printer or stored on servers and output devices, FollowMe can optionally encrypt data, using government grade data encryption to maximize security. FollowMe also restricts device access and user privileges, safeguarding devices and ensuring users only have access to the functions relevant for their job role. Restrictions can be made to copy, print, email, fax and scan and applied per user, output device or department.
