Solution brief
HP Access Control Printing Solutions
Reinforce control and security, reduce costs
Profit and security can be compromised when print environments are left uncontrolled. Protecting information,
securing devices and improving fleet management can put pressure on your entire organisation, especially if
you’re trying to increase productivity and lower costs at the same time.
Enhance security, help reduce costs and improve productivity in the print environment. With the suite of HP
Access Control (AC) Printing Solutions, you can receive print authentication, authorisation, accounting, auditing
and secure pull-printing capabilities that are scalable across your organisation. Designed to be modular and
integrate easily with HP devices, HP AC enables you to choose the specific solutions that are right for you.
What if you could …
• Enhance the security of networked printers by easily
authenticating devices and users?
• Offer mobile and remote workers, as well as print-reliant
departments, the access and features they need?
• Increase the rate of return on infrastructure investments by
tracking activity by device, user and department?
• Cut print costs across the organisation with rules-based printing
and intelligent routing?
• Change user behaviour without sacrificing convenience or security?
Solution at a glance
Transform imaging and printing practices for a more efficient and
secure environment. HP Access Control Printing Solutions makes it
easy to monitor and control imaging and printing costs, collect and
track data by device and user, and modify user behaviour to help
lower expenses and eliminate unclaimed documents. Manage access
to networked HP LaserJet printers, multifunction printers (MFPs) and
scanners to protect sensitive information. Help ensure streamlined
imaging and printing practices by confirming the right devices are
being used for the right jobs and contribute to environmental goals
by reducing paper usage.
When you deploy HP AC Printing Solutions through an HP Managed
Print Services MPS agreement, the solutions support HP singlefunction printers, MFPs and networked scanners, as well as selected
imaging and printing devices from Canon.

HP at work
When a large pharmaceutical company started to notice signs
of an unmanaged print environment – confidential documents
left exposed at the printer and employees resisting the steps
to complicated authorisation – it turned to HP. HP Access
Control Printing Solutions successfully reined in both the
risk and the resistance. Now only authorised employees can
retrieve jobs at the device and encrypted data provides an
extra layer of protection. Plus, employees get what they need
without the hassle because the simple badge authorisation is
easy and stress-free.
