PaperCut MF and NG 17.1 Released

24th May 2017

PaperCut MF and NG 17.1 are now available and introduce many enhancements to extend the security of your print environment.

Increased Security

Watermarking and Digital Signatures enhance printing security by allowing identification of the source of any printed document. This release enhances the current functionality by introducing full page watermarking for PCL6 and PostScript print jobs.

PaperCut have also addressed the issues around the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in 2018 by offering stricter cookie security with HTTPOnly and the option to force all cookies to HTTPS with a “secure” flag.

Improved Web Print for Multiple Copy Jobs

In order to improve system performance, and the user experience, the latest Web Print Server update changes the behaviour of 3rd party application requests for multiple copies of a single job meaning all copies will now be printed as a single job.

This reduces the load on the Application and Web Print servers with fewer spool files created and lower network traffic. For end users, it means less time spent waiting when releasing a job and minimises confusion by only presenting one print job at the release station.

Enhanced Mobility Print User Authentication

To help provide extra security on shared devices Mobility Print now enables optional enforcement of authentication for every print job regardless of the user or device.

Improved Secure Print and Find-Me Configuration

For PaperCut MF users, enhancements to Secure Print and Find-Me now make it easier to find printers and get your configuration right the first time.
