Frequently asked questions
  • What is the cost of uniFLOW Online Express?

    uniFLOW Online Express is a free and easy to install, secure cloud-based identification, scanning and accounting solution suitable for organisations who do not wish to invest in or manage local servers.

  • How does secure Mobile Printing work alongside uniFLOW Online?

    Users can print jobs from their mobile devices, smartphones, or tablets by sending the file to be printed as an email to uniFLOW Online. If the file needs to be converted from its native format into a language the printer understands, this takes place within the regional data centre in which the uniFLOW Online service is hosted, i.e. customer data does not leave the data centre. Once converted, the original file is deleted, and the converted file remains within the regional data centre until the user selects it to be released/printed.

  • How does uniFLOW Online store User and Print Job information?

    uniFLOW Online does not store any print jobs. Accounting data and configuration details are the only information that are sent outside the company network. Administrators can also prevent file names of print jobs being uploaded, which removes yet another potential security risk. Other sensitive information, e.g. ID card numbers or PIN numbers stored in users’ accounts, is encrypted via a one-way salted hash to further enhance security.

  • How does User Authentication and Password Storage work alongside uniFLOW Online?

    uniFLOW Online does not provide its own identity management. Instead, it accepts logon credentials from multiple identity providers. The default provider is Windows® Azure™ Active Directory®. Alternatively, administrators can use Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) to integrate with, e.g. Microsoft® Office 365™, or their own locally hosted Active Directory®. In addition it is possible to make use of shared web identity providers like Facebook, Google, Yahoo!® or Windows Live ID. The primary security benefit of this identity management system is that uniFLOW Online does not store any user passwords. That said, provided the customer's own local Active Directory is connected, any password changes or user additions are automatically updated and recognised in uniFLOW Online.

  • What Tenant Information is stored within uniFLOW Online?

    Customer data is stored in uniFLOW Online according to statutory requirements. Customer data is not shared with any third parties, including Canon or the Canon Partner selling the service to the customer. Canon and Canon Partners can only view the names of their customers and license expiration dates. Customer user names, details, and print data is only available to the relevant customer.

  • Where is Data stored?

    uniFLOW Online is hosted in Microsoft® Azure™ data centres that are distributed across the globe. The multiple Microsoft® Azure™ data centres used by uniFLOW Online means that customer data respects data sovereignty, as it remains within the local region, i.e. U.S. customers' data will always be stored within U.S. data centres, and European customers can be sure their data will never leave Europe.
