HP Secure Printing to Ensure IT Security

IT security is vital for all companies and this must include secure printing. Have you taken steps to safeguard your network-connected printers?

An unsecured network printer can lead to a data breach in your company. Using HP’s well established secure printing solutions, Vantage IT can make security concerns a thing of the past.

Compliance and employee data confidentiality are key concerns for any organisation, particularly as the GDPR legislation is now being enforced. HP Access Control Secure Pull Printing helps protect sensitive documents and secures printing environments. This ensures documents can only be printed once a user identifies themselves at the printers – using a PIN, swipe card, or other means. Therefore, documents are not left at the printers for anyone to read.

Secure Network Printing

Vantage IT supplies and implements HP’s secure printing portfolio to enable printing to be controlled in your organisation. Some benefits of the HP products include:

  • Protect confidential documents – we can configure Windows, PIN or RFID card authentication that integrates seamlessly with your existing infrastructure. Or even enable two-factor-authentication. User authentication protects against your printed documents getting into the wrong hands.
  • HP high performance secure hard disk full hardware encryption – printers often contain hard drives, which unless encrypted could be a security risk if they were to get into the wrong hands. Secure printers from HP will encrypt data both in transit and on the printer’s hard drive.
  • Secure BIOS – HP Sure Start detects and prevents the execution of malicious code and self-heals the BIOS, helping to prevent unwanted access to your printer.
  • Reduce costs – Vantage IT can define policies which promotes responsible printing practices to help conserve paper and print usage. Unclaimed print jobs can be set to automatically delete after a specified period of time.
