HP recently announced that it has been positioned as a leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Security Solutions and Services Hardcopy 2017 Vendor Assessment report for providing the most secure print and printing services. According to IDC, “HP’s approach to security takes the entire print and document infrastructure into account, beginning with locking down the device and extending into all aspects of device usage and content protection.”
IDC further stated that “HP has established a formidable managed print services practice that includes security as a backbone and is foundationally built on investments it has made in its “as-a-service” global infrastructure.”
“IDC recognizes the importance of security and compliance requirements for different industries, and this study sets a benchmark for what clients should consider when evaluating their near term and longer term options,” said Robert Palmer, Research Director with IDC’s Imaging, Printing and Document Solutions team. “It is important for organizations to have a print security strategy tied to their overall cybersecurity roadmap, and to execute, track and manage progress to plan. The IDC MarketScape provides guidance on key criteria and considerations.”
HP claims that it is driving the industry forward through HP Labs security and cyber research teams to help printers stay one step ahead of malware attacks with advanced self-healing capabilities. The company’s dedicated R&D security lab creates many “industry firsts” throughout the personal systems and print ecosystem such as HP Connection Inspector and HP Sure Start.
The company further claims that HP Secure Managed Print Services (MPS) provides the most comprehensive device, data and document security to protect organizations’ business, revenue and reputation.
Tuan Tran, General Manager & Global Head, Office Printing Solutions, HP Inc. said “Being positioned as a Leader in the first IDC MarketScape report on security solutions and services hardcopy is a testament to how HP is redefining endpoint security, creating the most trusted printing products, solutions and services for businesses. From elevating awareness of the security risks facing organizations to best-in-class print fleet threat monitoring and risk remediation, security is at the heart of everything we do for our customers and partners around the world.”
