Some time ago, Google and PaperCut told the printing world about secure LDAP. It was a time. The only downside? Hungry fans had wait for it to, ya know, release.
Well, that day’s finally come! Secure LDAP is now available*.
*It’s a staggered rollout, so it should pop up in your Google Admin console over the next week or two.
Announced at Google Next London with PaperCut as the official launch partner, secure LDAP lets you sync and authenticate PaperCut users directly from G suite or Cloud Identity.
It’s available for all Google for Education tiers (yep, free for schools and universities), G Suite Enterprise, and Cloud Identity Premium users. Best.
Sysadmins now have a much easier way to sync and authenticate users, and no longer need to manage them in multiple places.
This more or less speaks for itself, but to spell it out: the time and effort savings are astronomical.
For end users
End users can now use PaperCut at any device or printer by logging in with their Google username and password.
No more recalling the Enigma code to print some meeting minutes.
With streamlined sync/authentication, organizations can free up resources and time they’d otherwise use for finicky directory management.
That’s seriously immediate and appreciable ROI.
Rounding out a glorious Google experience
With seamless Chromebook printing and Scan to Google Drive already kicking goals, secure LDAP is just the cherry on top.
