PrinterLogic CPA brings Secure Release Printing and Advanced Features to Sharp OSA®-enabled Multifunction Printers
MONTVALE, NJ September 16 2020—Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America, a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation, and PrinterLogic, a global leader in Serverless Printing Infrastructure, today announce that PrinterLogic has received Sharp OSA Validation of its Control Panel Application (CPA) for Sharp multifunction printers (MFPs). Product validation by Sharp verifies that PrinterLogic’s CPA integrates seamlessly with Sharp OSA-enabled MFPs to deliver secure print release functionality to users and advanced CPA management tools for IT admins.
The new CPA, developed with technical guidance from Sharp, provides an intuitive touchscreen interface and a variety of authentication options including badge scan, smartphone release, and dual-factor authentication (DFA). As print security becomes more and more fundamental to organizations of every size, secure features and integrations like DFA have become essential.
“Having a PrinterLogic integration for our Sharp OSA-enabled MFPs will facilitate fast, easy and secure print release for our customers,” said Vince Jannelli, Associate VP, Software Product Management at Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. “This will be a welcome addition for IT directors and system administrators who are tasked with securing confidential information in their organizations.”
PrinterLogic’s Sharp CPA also provides Single Sign-On (SSO) support that can function as both an SSO “provider” and an SSO “listener.” That is, it can be the lead sign-on interface, or it can skip authentication entirely if users have already signed on through another app. In addition, the Sharp CPA enables copy and scan tracking. When enabled, admins can track all print, scan, and copy activity across their organization down to the user level. This advanced reporting feature gives decision-makers the necessary visibility to inform cost-saving initiatives.
“Sharp gets it — the world is moving to SaaS,” said Garrett Helmer, Senior Vice President of Channels at PrinterLogic. “Sharp’s testing and validation of our new CPA enables our SaaS customers to have a true serverless printing infrastructure for secure release printing from Sharp devices.”
The new Sharp CPA, which is available now to PrinterLogic SaaS customers, is built on the company’s new Control Panel Platform. The platform offers consistent user experience and enhanced performance across all printer brands.
