HP Access Control Secure Pull Printing

Content starts here


What if end-users in your organization could release their print jobs on any HP printer or MFP in the company, when and where they want, just by authenticating? This would drive significant productivity gains and reduce cost by getting rid of unclaimed documents on the printers’ output tray. This is now possible with HP Access Control Secure Pull Printing software on your server and HP Access Control Secure Printing modules installed on HP LaserJet printers and MFPs.

Print jobs are retained on print servers until their release

HP Access Control Secure Pull Printing is a distributed server-based application capturing print jobs and storing them on the server hard drive. Nothing is printed until the owner authenticates on any HP Access Control enabled HP printer or MFP, to reclaim print jobs. The reclaimed print jobs are then directly sent to the printing device where the user has authenticated.

Productivity & security gains

Documents won’t be produced until their owner is at the printer. This reduces printing waste, increases document confidentiality, and lets users reclaim documents when and where they need them.

Quotas and expiration for print jobs

Limits can be set for users: max size for stored print jobs and maximum storage time.

One print queue for all printers

Reduce the number of print queues you manage as only one printer queue is necessary on every PC.

Data encryption included

To protect your confidential data en-route to the printer or MFP, HP Access Control Secure Printing can encrypt all the print job data.

Other functions

HP Access Control Secure Pull Printing performs live
ID validation (badge number, PIN code) and badge enrollment for HP Access Control Secure Authentication modules, against LDAP and Active Directory servers.

User authentication

Users may authenticate on MFPs using any built-in authentication such as LDAP or Kerberos. On printers and MFPs, users can also authenticate using PIN codes, proximity badges, or smartcards.

Supported system features
