Financial IT Departments: Increase Security and Simplify Printing with PrinterLogic

Although banks and credit unions rely on technology, they still have paper-driven processes that require a stable printing environment. Clients want access to their money whether the bank’s printer is working or not. The financial industry poses unique printing problems for IT professionals.

This white paper demonstrates how PrinterLogic solves print management for banks and credit unions. Banks and credit unions hold the vital trust of protecting their clients’ assets. This trust goes beyond protecting money and information from an outside breach; it also includes securing these goods from inside perpetration. Financial organizations go to great lengths to ensure their clients’ assets, and their reputation, stay intact. These include complying with strict federal and state regulations in regards to security and which employees see what information.

IT departments need to meet all of these regulations while still cutting costs and improving operational efficiencies in a technology-driven industry. Although banks and credit unions rely on technology, they still have a paper-driven process and require a stable printing environment. Clients want access to their money whether the printer is working or not. The financial industry poses unique printing problems for IT professionals in the following areas:

  • Print servers in branches and data centers
  • VDI print workflows
  • Security and compliance measures around print management

PrinterLogic simplifies print environments by eliminating all print servers, converting your environment to centrally managed direct IP printing, and providing a web-based Admin Console. Through an unobtrusive end-user client, print jobs are sent from an end user’s device directly to the network printer, bypassing problematic print servers. This capability simplifies the continual challenge of managing print needs at numerous branches as well as expansion headaches. PrinterLogic goes beyond eliminating print servers and offers the following print management benefits:

  • Printer driver management and deployment without scripting and GPOs
  • Citrix and VMware support to simplify printing in virtual environments
  • Self-Service Installation Portal to reduce help desk calls and empower the end user
  • Print job auditing and reporting to discover printing activities, costs, and waste
  • Pull printing to increase security of print jobs

Once print servers are eliminated, VDI really shines. End users experience both a consistent desktop and print experience. PrinterLogic enables Citrix and VMware organizations to eliminate complex printer deployment scripts and GPOs that map print jobs from the virtual instances in the data center back to the end user’s network printer. These methods are replaced by the PrinterLogic Client and the automatic printer deployment assignments created in Printer Installer. This unique combination gives admins full control over printer driver assignments, which can utilize either native printer drivers or a universal print driver.

PrinterLogic secures printers and provides tools to remain SOX compliant. Printer security and compliance are increased through secure pull printing. Rather than immediately putting the document in the printing queue, secure pull printing requires end users to be physically present at the printer and uses one of several authentication methods to validate that they are the person who submitted the print job. Successful validation releases the print job for printing. Secure pull printing ensures the right person receives the document, eliminating the “print and sprint” approach—hoping you get to the printer before someone else does.

PrinterLogic also comes equipped with print audit features. Using the Admin Console, administrators can track all print details for each printer, providing an essential audit trail and employee accountability.
