FollowMe Embedded Now Available for Lexmark’s Next-Gen A4 Lineup


Ringdale, a provider of secure document-output management solutions, announced yesterday that its FollowMe Embedded supports Lexmark International’s new generation of A4 workgroup printers and copier/MFPs.

Available across Lexmark’s new A4 color CS622de Series, CX520 Series, and CX620 Series, and large workgroup monochrome MS820e Series, MX720 Series and MX820 Series, FollowMe Embedded is said to provide enhanced usability, control, and secure print management.

Follow Me Embedded provides:

  • Print-job tracking and reporting on print costs and activity for auditing and cost allocation.
  • Creates a virtual environment for printing and allows users to roam and print securely when and where they require, totally independent of geographic location. If an output device fails or is out of service, the user can print at another device by logging in and selecting their print job for printing.
  • FollowMe protects document confidentiality, by holding print jobs on a secure server, only to be printed by the owner, after the print-job owner authenticates themselves at the output device.
  • In order to implement the best security configuration for each infrastructure, FollowMe offers a range of user-authentication options, from radio frequency ID (RFID) smart cards, contact smart cards, numeric keypads, and biometric fingerprint readers.
  • To prevent unauthorized personnel intercepting data, while travelling to the printer or stored on servers and output devices, FollowMe can optionally encrypt data, using government-grade data encryption. FollowMe can also be configured to restrict 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 for copy, print, email, fax and scan and applied per user, output device, or department.

Jan Bollmann, executive vice president at Ringdale, commented: “With 57 percent of enterprises predicting an increase in print volume by 2025, providing organizations with the best solution that supports their compliance needs to mitigate against print related breaches is a key priority. By supporting the latest Lexmark devices, we are enabling a seamless customer experience and ensuring those devices are secured and complaint.”
