Print Enablement for Virtual Desktops

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) isn’t just for the Fortune 500 anymore. Organizations of all sizes are using desktop virtualization to improve application and data security, reduce infrastructure costs, enable remote and hybrid workers across the full spectrum of BYO devices and slash print-related support load.

Print Deploy now brings PaperCut MF’s full print enablement capability to make sure your users get the right printer, with the right driver, in the right place when using the world’s most popular VDI platforms like Citrix, VMware Horizon, Azure Virtual Desktop and Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS).

VDI just as big in scaled and distributed Enterprise organizations, where getting every user the printers they need wherever they need to work is essential for productivity.

New Secure-by-Default Features

Cybersecurity threats have continued to evolve, and so have we. PaperCut MF 23.0 brings further improvements from our broad security uplift programme, which involves ongoing internal and external architecture and code reviews, large-scale penetration testing and consultation with cybersecurity specialists.

Whilst most of these improvements are behind the scenes, silently reducing potential attack surfaces and migrating key security configurations from the web interfaces to safer alternatives, updating dependencies and so-forth, others you will see.

Administrators must now re-authenticate before changing an administrator’s password or creating new administrator accounts. Any passwords stored in the security.properties file, which can only be accessed locally by an administrator, are now automatically hashed.

Enabling Authentication Best-Practice

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) has become best-practice for line-of-business systems, offering layered protection against unauthorized access.

By requiring multiple verification methods, MFA significantly reduces the risk of breaches, even if a password is compromised.

PaperCut MF now supports MFA flows for all admin and user web interfaces when Azure AD is used as the identity provider.
