HP seeks to secure the printer RRS feed

  • Question

  •                            HP has announced a new system designed to secure the process of printing documents.

                        Most enterprises do not consider printers to pose any sort of security threat, but discounting the risks of networked printers is an invitation to disaster, claims HP.

                       The company contends that groups ranging from US weapon design facilities to primary schools have experienced data breaches as the result of compromised printers.

                     "Hackers are looking for the weakest link," Gary Lefkowitz, director of HP's Secure Print Advantage programme, said at a meeting with reporters in San Francisco.
