HP Inc. today announced it is the first and only vendor to complete the Keypoint Intelligence-Buyers Lab Security Validation Testing program for MFPs and printers. HP has now passed the third round of validation testing and earned the final program seal for Firmware Resilience for its HP FutureSmart v4+ Enterprise firmware platform for HP Enterprise and Managed printers and MFPs. This makes HP the first and only company to earn all three seals—Device Penetration, Policy Compliance, Firmware Resilience.
This accomplishment comes on the heels of HP being recognized with a 2019–2020 BLI PaceSetter award for Security: Imaging Technology Leadership, in a granular study by Keypoint Intelligence that drilled down into more than 75 points of potential differentiation spread across key categories of Vision and Market Leadership/Education, Security Assessment/Remediation Services, Fleet Management, Security Software Offerings, and Printer/MFP Platform Security (hardware and firmware security features).
Security is at the heart of everything we do at HP. The Buyers Lab program is helping to raise the bar in security. We’re proud to be the first OEM to complete the program and encourage our industry counterparts to get behind this effort in order to help drive more stringent standards for printer security overall.
The Buyers Lab Security Validation Testing program establishes industry benchmarks in the areas of Device Penetration, Policy Compliance, and Firmware Resilience. This three-track test suite addresses security from various vectors to ensure devices are safeguarded against vulnerabilities and all three program levels combined establish a strong security capabilities baseline for customers to include in their RFPs.
