Cybersecurity has become one of the most urgent and complicated issues facing businesses of all sizes today. As the volume and complexity of these attacks continues to grow, businesses are trying to keep pace with the latest policies and technologies that will help protect against the crippling and costly effects of a data security breach or cyber security attack. 

Helping our customers and partners effectively assess, develop, implement and manage print security solutions is central to our business. Which is why we are relentless when it comes to continually understanding the evolving threat landscape and developing technologies and solutions that help prevent bad-intentioned hackers and perpetrators from causing irreversible damage to businesses and their customers. 

Today we’re thrilled to share yet another industry recognition that further underscores our commitment to print security.  Keypoint Intelligence has announced that HP has won the BLI PaceSetter award for Security in the Imaging Technology Leadership category. This award recognizes the document imaging OEM with the most comprehensive offerings and programs when it comes to print-environment ecosystems.

To determine the winner, analysts at Keypoint Intelligence conducted an in-depth evaluation of the security offerings of 10 document imaging OEMs. The study evaluated more than 75 points of potential differentiation spread across key categories.

According to Keypoint Intelligence, HP stood out in many areas including:

  • HP JetAdvantage Security Manager can assess the security posture of HP print devices on the network and automatically remediate devices whose settings are out of compliance
  • The most secure MFPs with advanced security features such as Run-time Intrusion Detection and the HP Sure Start self-healing BIOS.
  • A leader when it comes to marketing efforts to educate customers and channel partners about device security.
  • Print security training and certification programs for both internal and channel partner sales teams and dedicated HP Security Specialists to implement solutions and services.

Separately, HP JetAdvantage Security Manager 3 was also awarded a Pick and Outstanding Achievement Award for Outstanding Security Compliance.  These coveted honors recognize the most impressive solutions evaluated by Buyers Lab during the previous 12-month test cycle.  According to Keypoint Intelligence, “HP JetAdvantage Security Manager is a unique solution that centralizes and automates the process of bringing and keeping output devices in compliance with an organization’s preferred security policies.”  For more information, visit Keypoint’s press release here.
