Almost silently VMware introduced in the new ACE 2.0 virtual printing technology provided by its partner ThinPrint (time for another acquisition after Propero one?)
Sentillion quickly answers new threat in a similar way:
Sentillion vBusiness, a division of Sentillion, Inc., today announced a free add-on module for its vThere desktop virtualization solution, that enables a remote user to print securely from inside a vThere virtual desktop image to any printer accessible from the underlying host, both locally connected and networked. This is all accomplished by establishing a secure communication channel between the image and the host, without the need to use or configure USB devices and print drivers within the image. In addition and in contrast to other virtual machine products, vThere’s patent pending Print Driver software provides “universal” support for all printers, without having to download or install any additional drivers.
Sentillion’s vThere Print Driver software is available for download at www.vthere.net and is included as part of vThere’s standard pricing ($125 per user).
