“HP is empowering our partners to deliver amazing experiences for customers by reinventing printing for an on-demand world,” said Enrique Lores, President, Imaging & Printing at HP Inc. “As the cyber landscape evolves and the path of work transforms, we will drive partner success with innovative new services and solutions for printing easily and securely, enabling increased services and revenue opportunities.”
At HP Reinvent, HP is launching HP Connection Inspector, a new intelligent embedded security feature created by HP Labs to help printers stay one step ahead of malware attacks with advanced self-healing capabilities. The technology is unique in that it can inspect outbound network connections typically abused by malware, determine what is normal and then stop suspicious activity. If compromised, it will automatically trigger a reboot to initiate HP Sure Start self-healing procedures, all without IT intervention.
Partners can help customers upgrade their fleet with resilient HP Enterprise printers that feature the latest HP security technologies such as HP Connection Inspector, available via a FutureSmart firmware update later this year2.
HP Roam is a new universal business printing experience. It enables mobile professionals to print anytime from any location and any device, and retrieve their prints securely from a growing set of print locations at the office, at home or at public sites. Print jobs can be submitted to the cloud as content is being consumed or created and picked up at the location of choice without having to worry about device to printer compatibility or connectivity. In addition, GPS and Bluetooth technologies allow for fast auto-discovery of printers while authentication ensures a protected, secure release of prints.
HP Roam helps simplify the print experience while creating new service and revenue opportunities for customers and partners. Resellers can expand and differentiate their managed print services to leverage the cloud, using a simple deployment that minimizes staff training and service costs.
