Defend your network from a security breach with the world’s most secure printers – Part 4 of 4

Posted on Tue, Dec 29, 2015

secure-printersIn the first three blog posts in this series we looked at the growing threat of cyber-crime, how your multifunctional printers can be overlooked as security weak points, and ways in which you can protect your network printers from a security breach. If you are looking to upgrade your printers to more secure printers, this is a good time to consider improving your entire printer security on your entire printer fleet. By purchasing or leasing a printer with the best possible security features you can protect your organization now and in the future against a possible security breach. The good news is that with 53% of IT managers now aware that their printers can leave them vulnerable to criminals [1], printer firms are starting to offer features that deliver superior protection.

So, what is the world’s most secure printer?

There are many printers that are extremely secure, however one model in particular stands out over others, the HP LaserJet Printer with JetIntelligence!

This new range currently offers your firm the best possible defense against a security breach. The security features this HP printer provides include:

  • Automated Security Compliance – After every fresh boot, the JetAdvantage Security Manager installed on the printer will check the device settings against your security policies to ensure it is fully compliant, and if necessary change setting to ensure compliancy. This “self-healing” means your IT team rarely needs to get involved.
  • HP Sure Start – Sure Start checks the BIOS code for problems. If it finds one it will reboot the printer and load a safe, fresh copy of the BIOS. This ensures that even if someone gets access to your printer, it is hard to tamper with.
  • Intrusion Detection – Your printer monitors itself, checking for anomalies that might signal an intrusion. In the event of a problem, the device will automatically reboot to ensure your security is not compromised.

This new series of printers of HP ranges from the high-performance HP LaserJet Enterprise M506dn to the mammoth M606x, which is able to deliver up to 20,000 sheets per month at up to 65 pages per minute.

 

Why Not Upgrade Now?

Upgrading your printer will not only improve your security, but will also deliver a number of other benefits:

  • Newer, more efficient models use less ink and will need to be repaired less often.
  • Large volumes of printing will be done quicker, and to a higher quality.
  • Providing print-capacity through one high-quality printer is more efficient and safer than using several smaller printers.
