Why You Need to Invest in Secure Hardware
August 10, 2021 | NECS
Cyber security is a widely discussed topic in every industry right now. And it matters regardless if your team is working from home or in the office.
Some think it’s important to be extra vigilant for those working from home, and truthfully, they aren’t far off. Cybercriminals search for vulnerabilities—any areas where they may be able to squeeze in and infiltrate (this is commonly known as an entry point). The majority of home offices were put together quickly and security was not top of mind. That’s not to say that your brick and mortar locations shouldn’t be secure as well.
We urge you to close those gaps and secure all entry points. We also urge you to do this as soon as possible and not “when it is convenient”. Unfortunately, cybercriminals won’t wait.
Getting hacked can cause serious problems. Dealing with an attack is not only time-consuming but expensive, and can significantly damage your reputation.
We’ve previously written about how printers are often the gateway to a network and why organizations need to take action and invest in devices that are built with security in mind. Take a look at this HP Wolf Security video which further illustrates this.
We stand by and recommend HP printers because they are the most secure printers in the market.
Here’s why you need to invest in HP secure hardware:
- All devices are built with endpoint protection.
- Advanced features like self-healing firmware and breach detection are available.
- Threats are contained through isolation.
- The devices are powered with intelligent software to help you and your team print without fear.
- Even the cartridges are secure! HP states that all Original HP office cartridges are built with security features such as tamper-resistant chips, and firmware.
Your team needs to be equipped with secure technology in the office and when working remotely. It’s no longer considered “nice to have”—it is a requirement in 2021 and beyond. Cybercriminals are looking for a weak entry point and can attack at any time. Protect yourself and your employees while you can.
