We are happy to announce the latest update for Blueprint Enterprise 5.3!  Update 1 adds the following new features and improvements: 


Security Improvements

  • New group-based login roles for administrative functions in both Blueprint Administrator and Pharos Print Center allow for granular access to configuration and maintenance tasks rather than "all-access" rights. Applying the Principle of Least Privilege (POLP) streamlines change processes and helps protect your network and your data.
  • Improved administrative login and task accountability: Beginning with this update, all administrative logins are logged to the operational database. Quickly determine who accessed Blueprint Administrator or Print Center to perform a specific task; this improves troubleshooting, speeds recovery, and improves accountability.
  • In some environments, users don't know their directory services passwords, which makes Print Center logins impossible. A new email + PIN authentication option is now available for customers who need to use alternate credentials or multi-factor authentication for card registration and Print Center access.


User Experience and Administrative Improvements

  • Blueprint's Policy Print messaging is now based on HTML5 and presented using a secure, lightweight web client called React, which complies with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) for screen reading software and other OS-level accommodations for vision-restricted users.
  • License expiration shouldn't be disruptive. A new health test sends a notification 30 days before your Blueprint license expires, providing ample time to engage us for renewal and update without the fire drill.



For details on these updates and new features, please refer to the Blueprint 5.3 Update 1 New Features guide.
