HP Thin Client Security

HP's most secure and comprehensive thin client portfolio for cloud computing and beyond1.

Protection for user devices, data & identity

Security starts with devices that process and store data in the cloud. Combine that with hardware that is secure by design and software that is secure in operation.

Device security

Resiliency, recoverability, and tamper prevention

UEFI Secure Boot

All models start up with UEFI Secure Boot, and our firmware is compliant with NIST SP800-147 and SP800-155 guidelines.

HP Sure Start5, 6

An industry leading technology layer that implements NIST SP800-193 guidelines, which detect and prevent malicious attacks on the UEFI.

Integrated TPM across the portfolio7

Highly-secure, hardware-backed vault for storing and protecting data.

AMD Memory Guard8

Provides OS- and application-independent DRAM encryption without requiring software modifications.

Physical protection

Support for industry-standard cable locks and integrated mounting solutions9 to physically secure your device.

Data security

Transient data protection and data theft prevention

HP ThinPro operating system

Read-only and locked file system, encrypted registry, Linux OS, and firewall support adds extra layers of security for your organisation.

HP Write Manager10

HP USB Port Manager10

Blacklist or whitelist USB ports and the devices connected to them.

HP SureView6, 11

Identity security

Ensure the right access to the right person

Active Directory integration

HP Thin Clients integrate seamlessly within an 802.1x authenticated network and support machine level identity within Active Directory to provide identity, discoverability, and endpoint management functions.

Multi-factor authentication

Control user privileges and access to system resources, configuration options, and sensitive data using layers of authentication and identity confirmation.

Single sign-on support

Boost productivity in shared workspaces with quicker and more secure log-ons with support for industry-standard SSO options12.
