Universal Print Overview
Universal Print provides users with the ability to streamline the way they print and manage print.

In addition, Universal Print adds functionality like security groups for printer access, location-based printer discovery, and a rich administrator experience.

Protect your Documents and Data
Your organizational and personal data is handled in accordance with Microsoft data management guidelines. As such, your organization’s print data is stored in the same manner as Office 365 or Outlook data – protected and secured from vulnerabilities. All communications are over secured HTTPs connections, and printers are represented as Azure AD device objects backed by an X.509 certificate.
In addition, Brother devices also offer built-in triple layer security features to help safeguard your network, keep your devices secure, and protect documents in transit to and from print devices.
