Y Soft Corporation announced a new mobile-based authentication solution for identity verification for networked printers. The new YSoft MFX Mobile Reader is part of Y Soft’s family of USB readers.
“COIVD-19 has made businesses aware of how they need to keep their employees safe at the office,” said Wouter Koelewijn, chief of products, Y Soft. “MFX Mobile Reader addresses the need for better physical safety by allowing their employees to use their mobile devices to identify themselves instead of physically touching the networked printer.”
The new solution has three components: a reader, a mobile app, and digital credentials. The new MFX Mobile Reader also provides YSoft SAFEQ partners with a touchless mobile alternative.
YSoft MFX Mobile Reader reads the user’s credentials from the user’s mobile phone. Employees only need to touch their own mobile phones to print all the jobs in their print queue.
With the YSoft Mobile Connect mobile app (Android or iOS), users can authenticate access to print management services by holding their phone close to the MFX Mobile.
YSoft Connect ID provides a simple enrollment process, and the credentials can be sent electronically to each user. The YSoft Mobile Connect app stores the digital credentials and uses those credentials to authenticate the user on any printer equipped with the MFX Mobile Reader.
