Manage costs associated with your MFP while protecting your company assets.
Ringdale’s FollowMe®, a complete document output management solution, helps organizations reduce printing costs, optimize the efficiency of printing environments and protect valuable business information. Highly scalable, FollowMe will grow with your business, delivering continuous improvement in document workflow productivity, essential when competing within this tough economic climate.
Waste from documents, left uncollected at the printer can equate to a considerable percentage of all printing. FollowMe quickly reduces unnecessary printing by requiring users to authenticate at the printer to release print jobs. It also provides policy controls, enabling organizations to minimize printing costs and waste, by rolling-out enterprise-wide printing policies such as allowing color printing only when authorized by an administrator.
FollowMe reduces the time required to manage printing environments by centralizing the control of print fleets across multiple sites and providing intuitive maintenance tools which simplify administrative tasks.
Workforce productivity, central to the performance of any organization is enhanced with FollowMe’s secure, flexible printing technology, which enables users to travel and print securely when and where needed. With data breaches and regulatory pressure increasing, there are significant risks if the printing environment is not secure. FollowMe protects valuable data by preventing confidential documents from ending up in the wrong hands. With FollowMe, remote workers can print from any location, and if a printer should fail, workforce productivity is not disrupted.
Since 1997, FollowMe’s easy-to-use tracking and reporting tool has provided organizations transparency on how much each department, user and device is costing the organization – enabling finance managers to assign realistic budgets or recover costs from departments, users or clients.

Common Access Card (CAC/PIV) Access to MFPs
Netgard™ MFD is a drop-in, in-line, multi-factor user authentication solution for networked devices such as Kyocera Multifunctional Products (MFPs). The Netgard™ MFD appliance protects a network by requiring users to authenticate themselves with a smartcard and personal identification number (PIN), thereby preventing unauthorized users from accessing privileged materials or tampering with network resources. Without a card and PIN, the Netgard™ MFD appliance does not permit the user to scan and send from the multi-function device. Netgard™ MFD supports both local user authentication as well as network authentication using LDAP or Active Directory.
For U.S. government agencies, Netgard™ MFD meets Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD-12) by facilitating Common Access Card (CAC) multifactor authentication required by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) for access to network-based devices and systems. Many legacy devices, purchased before the adoption of HSPD-12, do not support CAC access. As a result, many useful legacy devices, such as multi-function printers, scanners and faxes, have been rendered useless. With Netgard™ MFD, Cryptek offers an affordable solution that helps government agencies make the most of their technology investment by bringing these legacy devices into compliance with HSPD-12.
