HP has announced three new enterprise-class LaserJet printers with built-in self-healing security features.
The firm says the new models are the most secure printers in the world.
“Protecting against security breaches is one of the biggest challenges our customers face,” said Tuan Tran, vice president and general manager, LaserJet and Enterprise Solutions business, HP.
“HP is helping customers secure their devices, documents and data by defending our enterprise printers with the strongest protection in the industry.”
According to the Ponemon Institute, 64 per cent of IT managers believe their printers are likely infected with malware. At the same time, 56 per cent of enterprise companies ignore printers in their endpoint security strategy.
To help address this gap, HP is delivering its new HP LaserJet Enterprise printers and multi-function printers (MFPs) with industry leading security features built in, including HP Sure Start, Whitelisting and Run-time Intrusion Detection.
HP Sure Start enables detection of and self-healing recovery from malicious BIOS attacks, while Whitelisting ensures only know, good firmware can be loaded and executed on a printer.
Run-time Intrusion Detection provides in-device memory monitoring for malicious attacks.
These new features will be standard on new HP LaserJet Enterprise printers and OfficeJet Enterprise X printers with PageWide Technology going forward.
The new HP Enterprise LaserJet printers and MFPs deliver the fastest real world print performance in their class with the fastest first page out and dual-sided print speeds and lowest total energy consumption per page.
The new models include:
- The HP LaserJet Enterprise M506 series for monochrome printing with a 25 per cent smaller footprint and dual-sided print speeds up to 71 per cent faster than its predecessor.
- The HP LaserJet Enterprise MFP M527 series which offers monochrome printing in an MFP that includes single pass, two-sided scanning, an 20.3cm colour touch screen control panel to support advanced workflow, and first page out speeds up to 33percent faster than its predecessor.
