Are you still running your business on these older, highly unsecure, HP LaserJet printers?

Posted by Steve Lastic on May 15, 2019 11:57:36 AM

 

When a printer reaches end of life, they no longer receive firmware updates from the manufacturer to protect them from the latest security vulnerabilities.  This means that they become a potential security risk for your organization.

 

Hackers know this and know how to easily exploit these vulnerabilities.

 HP can help defend your network with the world’s most secure devices that can automatically detect and stop an attack.

 

HP Sure Start and run-time intrusion detection are included on HP Enterprise printers to protect at startup and during operation.  If malware is detected, the printer automatically shuts down and reboots the device.  Every time a printer is turned on or restarts with an error, HP Sure Start automatically validates the integrity of the BIOS code and self-heals if necessary.

HP Enterprise printers also include whitelisting to help ensure that only authentic, “known good” HP firmware—digitally signed by HP—is loaded into memory.

 

For less than what you are currently paying now for just toner cartidges, TotalPrint USA can replace these older HP Printers with the brand new E60055.  Includes OEM toner, service and parts.

 

Protect, detect, and recover.

HP printers have the industry’s strongest security, with four key technologies that are always on guard, continually detecting and stopping threats while adapting to new ones. Only HP Enterprise printers automatically self-heal from attacks by triggering a reboot—IT doesn’t need to intervene.

After a reboot occurs, HP JetAdvantage Security Manager automatically assesses and, if necessary, remediates device security settings to comply with pre-established company policies.  Administrators can be notified of security events via Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tools such as ArcSight, Splunk, and SIEMonster.

Don't Sign Another Copier Lease... Flexible Options Available

Posted by Dan Gayton on Sep 6, 2018 12:02:22 PM

  In today’s fast-paced world of ever changing technology, I think we can all agree... our expectations are set high. Long gone are the times of signing copier leases with no flexibility. In fact, those leases only made sense back when the internet didn't exist! They simply do not meet the demands set by consumers today, and should not be utilized in the managed print world.
