HP has introduced a new set of four safe, enterprise-class laser printers. These printers adopt security technology from PC division HP, allowing businesses to save their documents in safety by monitoring intruders, stopping malicious attacks and ensuring that the BIOS is free from corruption.
March 2015 “Tracking Benchmark Annual Global IT Security Research” published by Ponemon Institute shows that 53% of IT managers realize that their printers are vulnerable and 64% claim that their printers are likely infected with malware. However, despite these figures, IT confidence in the security of the printer is low.
To make printers, and data to be transmitted securely, HP brings its client endpoint security to its enterprise laser printers. These measures, including HP SureStart, Secure whitelist, and run-time intrusion detection technology, to sit on top of common basic safety measures, including protection devices, privacy and encryption, the last key security standards and access control.
security solution of HP
If these characteristics are not dependent on the hardware, HP claims that these security features can be implemented in printers as old as 2010 through firmware upgrades. This means that if the users are not willing to go to a new printer, they can upgrade their printer to become more secure.
first feature known as HP SureStart, it depends on the hardware, as it relies on a secured hardware controller, will be available on line in the fall of new corporate lasers only. This technology uses a hardware root of trust compared BIOS against golden copy. If the hardware controller determines that the BIOS has been attacked or damaged, it will re-flash the printer to a previously safe start in part of an electrically isolated region of the flare.
This helps reduce downtime, the printer does not need to be sent to reflashed, and businesses do not have to wait for service.
White list also helps to protect the printer from running tampered code. Using the digital signature, the CPU of the printer whether the HP-authentic code is loaded. If the signature does not match, the device will reboot, and it will be notified.
With intrusion detection, the printer will continuously scan the memory to check the invasion. If detected, the device automatically stops and restarts in good condition.
New printers HP,
These new enterprise-class printers contain toner similar technology recently, consumer updates HP, enabling HP, LaserJet printers to make faster, smaller and quieter. These printers are up to 24% more compact than the previous generation and up to 71% faster when printing double-sided documents. HP said that printers provide up to 46% faster than the production of the first page and 61% faster time to wake up from sleep. If your business runs a lot of print jobs, these savings can add up to significant time savings.
In addition, there is a faster installation time, optional retractable keyboard to let you easily dial in the e-mail addresses for the scan, the cave light so you can see the printed pages in the output tray, and the convenience of a built-in stapler multifunction models. As consumer models, there are Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, AirPrint 1.4, Eprint and NFC crane print to print from your smartphone or tablet.
The portfolio includes LaserJet Enterprise M506 ($ 649, £ 418, AU $ 910), the HP LaserJet Enterprise MFP M527 ($ 1,799, £ 1,160, AU $ 2522), HP Color LaserJet Enterprise M553 ($ 599, £ 386, AU $ 840) and the HP Color MFP M577 LasetJet ($ 2,199, 1,418 £, AU $ 3,083).
In addition Color LaserJet Enterprise M553, which is already available, these printers will be coming this fall. M506 can print at speeds up to 45 pages per minute and a 60% increase in the toner, which should help to reduce printing costs. M527 are equipped with such innovations, but has a larger 8-inch swivel color touch screen. M577 has a 40 page per minute print speed copying and color cartridges that can last up to 9,500 prints.
