Xerox holds a job in queue until you release it with a passcode. It also has a Print Security Audit Service, which can monitor whether company printers are used in alignment with company policy. Other options include overwriting, data encryption, embedded faxes and removeable hard drives.

Ricoh is another secure printing option, offering FlexRelease servers, a cord authentication package, an enhanced Locked Print NX, and a Smart Device Monitor for auditing and reporting on usage.
