The Pharos Sentry Print app makes it easy for businesses of all sizes to secure their office printing workflows, ensure document confidentiality, and significantly reduce print waste and costs.


In a Sentry Print environment, employees walk up to their chosen printer and use the Sentry Print app on their mobile device to authenticate and release (print) their documents. This simple workflow ensures that the document owner is present at the device when it’s printed. This prevents sensitive information from being left unattended on printer output trays.


Sentry Print also improves convenience for employees by allowing them to release their documents at any secured printer on their network. It’s a cloud solution, so there’s no need to configure and maintain print servers and drivers.
