HP recently announced their newest range of enterprise laser printers which have been designed to give small to medium businesses a security boost. With a more connected world comes growing security concerns and the need for businesses to keep their confidential documents confidential, but often, the security of what’s being printed is overlooked.
Printing is becoming more vulnerable as more and more printers become connected to the cloud. A recent survey by Quocirca showed that almost 90% of businesses have suffered security breaches and data loss due to unsecured printing.
HP’s new LaserJet Enterprise MFP M630 Series of multi-function laser printers offer streamlined and secure printing with advanced security features in order to safeguard business data. The LaserJet Enterprise MFP M630h, the LaserJet Enterprise MFP M630f, the LaserJet Enterprise MFP M630dn and the LaserJet Enterprise Flow MFP M630z all feature an encrypted hard drive as well as access to HP Imaging and Printing Security Centre and HP Web Jetadmin.
HP Web Jetadmin allows you to manage your printer fleet with effective reporting including being able to access printer information (including supplies status) and controlling who has access to colour printing. The printers can also be equipped with the optional HP Trusted Platform Module to safeguard your security keys, passwords and certificates.
While the security features are impressive and necessary, it is the printers’ other features that make them perfect for small to medium businesses. All four printers in the range can scan, copy, fax and print and allow for mobile printing with support for HP ePrint, Apple AirPrint and apps for android devices.
The printers also feature single pass scanning and a 100 page automatic document feeder to speed up scanning, copying and faxing. The printers can be fitted with an optional 900 page 3-bin stapling mailbox that features automatic job sorting and finishing to handle high volume printing.
The HP LaserJet Enterprise MFP M630 Series printers all boast a print speed of 57 pages per minute (ppm) and have a 100 page multipurpose paper tray as well as a 500 page paper tray. The Laserjet Enterprise MFP M630f comes with two 500 page paper trays while the LaserJet Enterprise Flow MFP M630z comes with three 500 page paper trays.
All of the printers in the range come with a 20.3cm colour touchscreen to allow users to preview and edit scans, adjust images and launch standard processes. The printers also support printing direct from USB. The printers are all Energy Star rate and have Blue Angel certification, making them environmentally friendly as well.
