Where printers are equipped with a badge or card reader, the end user can authenticate at the printer using their employee badge or CAC/PIV card. For printers without a built-in control panel, a networked-enabled card reader can be used to release all the user’s print jobs.
PrinterLogic’s multi-factor authentication system is HSPD-12 compliant. It enables CAC/PIV smart card release on any existing printer without the need for an expensive print-server infrastructure. Documents are digitally signed to ensure non-repudiation.
The PrinterLogic control panel can be installed directly on a printer. This enables users to login and release their print jobs on the printer’s control panel using their Active Directory login or a User ID and numeric PIN. These methods do not require additional hardware for supported devices. PrinterLogic supports most printer models, depending on release method.
Any device with a browser can access PrinterLogic’s web app to release print jobs. A dedicated browser in a kiosk near the associated printer can also be used, even for simple printers that do not have a control panel.
With PrinterLogic, you can replace all the functionality that print servers used to provide, while adding many new features that simplify print management and provisioning, reduce costs, and empower users to install printers for themselves—without help desk assistance.
