HP Makes Print Security Easier with Expanded Services and Solutions

New offerings improve compliance and efficiency, while mitigating security risks

PALO ALTO, June 4, 2015 — HP today announced new and updated solutions and services to help customers achieve greater security and efficiency for their print environment. This expanded set of offerings is part of HP’s broader strategy to deliver innovative print security offerings and make them accessible to more customers.

“Security and protecting corporate data are issues of growing importance for our customers,” said Edmund Wingate, vice president, LaserJet Enterprise Solutions, HP. “HP continues to lead the way in printer security with offerings that strengthen the security of our network printers and help protect our customers’ data.”

Making industry leading print security more accessible to customers
Serverless pull printing is a new feature of HP Access Control that eliminates the need for servers in small, branch offices.  Secure pull printing can be deployed to maintain document confidentiality, improve regulatory compliance and save on toner and paper. HP Access Control can also now serve as a managed mobility solution, allowing mobile device users to print via email to the secure pull print queue. This feature allows easy printing from mobile devices that is subject to the same access control, tracking and security measures as print jobs initiated by PC’s or laptops on the company network. These new capabilities are available globally to all customers with HP Access Control.

The HP JetAdvantage Security Manager has expanded device coverage to include recent Pro-class HP LaserJet printers. This means customers can use HP’s policy-based security monitoring and management solution to secure a wider range of printers. Also, HP Printing Security Advisory Services expanded its geographic coverage, adding security advisors in Europe and Asia to make HP’s print security expertise available to customers in these regions. 

Greater security through analytics and automation
HP delivered a new module for the HP Capture and Route solution, adding forms recognition capabilities. The new module, available globally, makes it faster and easier to scan paper documents and manage them digitally to reduce errors and improve security and compliance. For customers needing additional workflow automation and analytics, Managed Services offers these capabilities through integration with HP Big Data, HP Teleform and HP Process Automation to further enhance security, compliance, and information governance for a range of industries (e.g., legal, healthcare, financial services, retail, etc.) 

For customers looking to optimize their printer fleet for efficiency and productivity, HP launched the Proactive Print Advisor, a service providing customers with customized reporting, analysis and recommendations based on their individual print environment. Available globally, this service helps reduce the printer management load for IT organizations by providing recommendations on how to optimize their print fleet for cost effectiveness, policy enforcement, and to stay on top of updates.
