HP introduces hybrid work print solutions with HP Wolf Security

May 13, 2021

HP Inc. announced enhanced print services and solutions with HP Wolf Security that allow IT departments to help boost workforce productivity while also helping to protect corporate networks and data.

As part of these enhancements, HP introduced a new Flexworker offering, Internet Printing through HP Advance and HP Secure Print compatibility for Universal Print from Microsoft.

“The existing business transformation trends around cloud, as-a-service and security have seen significant acceleration over the past year,” said George Brasher, General Manager and Global Head, Print Services and Solutions, HP Inc. “In this hybrid world, where workers are distributed and the risk of cyberattacks has skyrocketed, we see businesses needing scalable and flexible printing solutions that are both secure and manageable.”

HP’s new Flexworker offering, which is part of HP Wolf Enterprise Security Services, is a scalable cloud-based print service for hybrid workforces. This new extended Managed Print Service (MPS) allows IT departments to arm hybrid workers with secure, company-approved printers to enhance productivity at home. By leveraging the HP Instant Ink and MPS ecosystems, HP said it is delivering a fully automated enterprise managed print experience that includes financing, technical support, reporting, centralized billing and device security features and monitoring. 

According to HP Wolf Security Blurred Lines & Blindspots Report, 45% of IT decision makers say they have seen evidence in their company of compromised printers being used as an attack point in the past year. The same report contains data from KuppingerCole, showing 86% of industry executives said their customers had concerns around the security of their home printers.

Flexworker gives enterprises visibility of up to 15 essential security settings on devices and leverages Security Manager to continuously monitor and automatically remediate if a device falls out of compliance with corporate policies.

As companies extend corporate offices into the home environment, HP is also expanding Flexworker to include select LaserJet Enterprise 400 series models, the HP LaserJet Managed MFP E42540f and HP LaserJet Managed E40040dn. The LaserJet Enterprise 400 series offers HP Wolf Security, which includes HP Trusted Platform module, HP Sure Start, Run-time intrusion detection, HP Connection Inspector, and easy, policy-based fleet deployment with HP Security Manager.

HP is also introducing secure Internet Printing through HP Advance, an integrated platform for capture, print and output management. Internet Printing will enable organisations to offer employees the ability to seamlessly and securely print from either the office or at home. HP’s new Internet Printing offering features the latest encryption and authentication technologies, including OAuth 2.0 with OpenID connect for Azure AD. The solution also provides job accounting, ensuring companies can track activity both inside and outside the organisation.

HP also announced HP Secure Print compatibility with Universal Print, which adds a layer of security by requiring authentication before the document is printed. It will also provide analytics about all print activity.

HP Advance Internet Printing is expected to be available in June 2021.

The HP LaserJet Managed MFP E42540f and HP LaserJet Managed E40040dn are expected to be available as part of Flexworker by July 2021.

HP Secure Print compatibility with Universal Print from Microsoft is expected to be available in July 2021.

The visibility into up to 15 security settings are expected to be available as part of Flexworker by August 2021.
