HP Print and Document Security

Unsecured printers can put your entire network at risk.  Print security is more than document security. Today’s threats require attention to data in-transit and endpoint devices on the network.  But now you can defend your network with printers that are always on guard. HP Inc. is recognized as the de facto industry standard for printing, managed print, workflow, and security.

HP Inc. offers a comprehensive MFP line with both conventional LaserJet and evolving PageWide technologies. Only HP printers can stop an attack the moment it starts and HP Enterprise models can self-heal with unique security features.

HP’s strategy and offerings have led to an expanded portfolio but also an extended IT coverage that spans security, mobility, and cloud within the print ecosystem. A dual technology line of laser and PageWide technologies gives HP Inc. a unique and extensive product offering. HP Inc. continues to maintain and build upon its large channel network.
