Encinitas, California—October 30, 2017—Com-Guard.com, Inc. (CGUD.pk), the technology company that has been designing and developing security applications for over 15 years is announcing its Mobile Printing Strategy to its Shareholders and the Investment Community.
The company had previously Tweeted, “CGUD 10K mentions Mobile/Secure Printing. We ported the printing software to the ARM CPU of the Raspberry Pi, a new future product!” and the Company would like to outline its strategy for the Secure Printing and Mobile Market
How do SmartPhone and Tablet devices print to the millions of Legacy (existing) Printers and the future printer products of the major manufacturers? Hewlett Packard is still the leader in printers, followed by Epson, Canon, Xerox, Brother and other players with smaller market shares. At this moment there is no easy, straightforward way, if at all, to print to Legacy Printers directly from Smartphones or Tablets without being on a network. Our initial target market is the USB enabled Legacy printer which does not have WiFi or only has WiFi and is connected to a closed network.
The Company solved the problem by licensing and designing an add on Printer Device (PrintSpotTM and printView® Software). The printView Software is a free App for the SmartPhone and Tablet Markets. The App includes the interface to the Operating System of choice, iOS (Apple) or Android (Google) and the PrintSpotTM technology product, includes the necessary Printer Drivers and functions to print the output to the printer of choice exactly as seen from the used smart device.
The Company is designing products around the ARM and Raspberry Pi Platforms to target a mobile device solution that targets the software pricing under $10 or a mobile device that would be an end user product at the $50 price range. These products would provide secure and mobile printing to hundreds of millions of Legacy Printers and new printing devices.
The Company has targeted a low-cost Hardware Platform using the ARM Architecture of the raspberry Pi. Until recently Hardware platforms were much more expensive with fewer features.
In an Article, Why Raspberry Pi is the future of computing devices, by Jason Hiner | March 5, 2017: Internet of Things he stated that “On the strength of its new $10 Raspberry Pi Zero W, it’s hard not to look at the Pi and see the technology industry’s next wave. With the Internet of Things on pace to grow from 6 billion devices in 2016 to over 25 billion in 2020–according to Gartner and IDC–we’re entering an era where technology will become smaller, cheaper, and far more inconspicuous. Perhaps the flagship device of this new era is the Raspberry Pi. Launched by University of Cambridge computer scientists in 2011 as a $35 board for DIY projects, the Raspberry Pi erupted into a global phenomenon that has sold over 12 million units.
Originally, the Raspberry Pi, the Cambridge team didn’t expect to sell more than a 1,000. Last
week, the latest Pi hit the market– Zero W, a $10 device that you can transform into a working computer with a little bit of modest tinkering (and your own keyboard, mouse, and monitor).” It has been reported in the Verge that the Raspberry Pi sold over 12 5 million boards in five years, By Paul Miller, on March 17, 2017 3:42 pm that the official Raspberry Pi magazine just announced that over 12.5 million of the affordable little Linux boards have been sold since the original Pi was launched in 2012. “That would make the Pi the third best-selling “general purpose computer” ever, behind Apple Macintosh and Microsoft Windows PCs.”
The Company believes that in addition to the mobile market’s need to print that there will be a need to print securely. In an Article on Printer Security entitled, “HP Teams With Partners On Print PC Security Solutions Offensive” on CRN, By Steven Burke on February 14, 2017 it has been stated. “This is a tremendous amount of untapped opportunity here for partners,” said Stephanie Dismore, vice president and general manager, Americas Commercial Channel for HP, speaking about the security solutions push. “What we are trying to do is help the channel have more security conversations for PC and print. The biggest untapped opportunities, said Dismore: the hundreds of millions of older printers and 400 million PCs that are four years or older
with antiquated technology – including outdated BIOSes – -that makes them attractive targets for hackers. “
In addition to the previous Articles, Hewlett Packard has written in the following Article, that “Hewlett Packard Designates Printing A First Class IoT Security Platform, Forbes Tech, SEP. 29, 2014, Patrick Moorhead , (Opinions expressed by Forbes Contributors are their own.). “When you think Internet of Things (IoT), the first thing that probably comes to mind
are FitBits and Nest thermometers, not printers. But if you work in enterprise IT or security, it should, particularly when it comes to IoT security. Hewlett-Packard has recently announced several additions to their printer security platform that plugs potential holes that should, in my opinion, be a focus for an overall corporate security strategy. I would like to talk about three things- why Hewlett-Packard has such a laser focus on this topic, why it’s so important to any corporation with a printer, and talk a bit on some new printing products Hewlett-Packard announced.”
We believe that Mobile and Secure Printing will be a real and growing market in the future, said Dr. Edward W. Savarese, Chief Executive Officer of Com-Guard, Inc. The Company will be selling its devices to Mobile Carriers, Distributors and Licensing its technology to Companies for Private Label Products. IDC has predicted that 2.1 Billion Tablets and Smartphones will ship in 2017. As Hewlett Packard has stated, there are over 400 Million Legacy Printers on the market and the Company will endeavor to be to be the leader in the Secure Mobile Printing Device and Software Market.
