directprint.io has added a new internal directory to its serverless print management solution, making it easier for customers to seamlessly take print to the cloud.
Designed to complement existing support for Microsoft Azure AD and Google Workspace, which simplifies the user provisioning and account set-up process, this latest development also paves the way for future integrations with leading cloud-based authentication providers such as Okta and Ping Identity.
With the launch of the new internal directory, directprint.io is empowering customers not currently on Azure AD or Google Workspace, to leverage the full capabilities of the cloud, automate time-intensive tasks, and cut costs by consuming print management as-a-service seamlessly and securely.
David Jenkins, CEO of directprint.io said, “We are committed to continuous investment in the directprint.io platform to ensure it delivers all the features and functionality our customers need to deploy, secure, control, and track print in the cloud. Full directory integration enables seamless deployment and provides unparalleled configuration control, and with this new feature we’re opening all those advantages to customers who either don’t leverage Google or Microsoft-centric directory capabilities or who wish to utilise a proprietary internal directory to connect users with printing devices in the cloud.”
The internal directory enables IT admins to simplify printer provisioning and ongoing management and adopt a Group Policy to manage printers from a single console for improved security and control. IT staff can assign specific users to specific printers, easily deploy, and remove new printers to end-users, apply print privileges, set print limits, or enforce rules on OUs, groups, or devices. The directory capabilities ensure simple printer deployment, by downloading the directprint.io application and clicking an invite link, end-users are signed in and automatically gain access to allocated/available printers, which reduces the IT workload.
