Nothing is safe if your printers aren’t ABC and HP secure

You understand the need for security. You lock your house and your car, you also lock your business premises, because criminals are out there wanting to steal your stuff. Similarly, you protect the software on your computers and mobile devices, because cyber-criminals are always trying to hack into your systems.

Your computers could be attacked up to 2,244 times a day, according to research from the University of Maryland. That’s once every 39 seconds.

You know to protect your computers … But how secure are your printers?

Are you printing an invite

to cybercriminals?

It’s likely you need your staff to be able to access your printers on the move, from anywhere in your premises and possibly beyond. But, this convenience brings with it inherent security dangers. If the software in your printers is accessible to your staff – who else is it accessible to?

Sensitive legal documents, customer’s data, financial details, passwords – they all pass through your printer fleet in the cut and thrust of a normal day. This is essential for the smooth-running of your business.

But, if this isn’t entirely secure at every step of the way, it’s an irresistible temptation to those who want to breach your security and steal your data. They’re out there: the Black Hats, the Hackers, the organised criminals  lurking in the dark, hunting for vulnerable systems to attack. 

According to the American telecoms company, Verizon, 50% of data breaches are perpetrated by organised criminals and 58% of the victims are small businesses.

Don’t be a security statistic

If your imaging, print, document and IT management environment isn’t secure, your business is at risk!

You need the protection of a guardian who knows what they know, who employs the latest in security concepts; who can stay several steps ahead of them.

You need protection and you need it now!

This isn’t just a good idea, it isn’t even just the key to the continued survival of your business, it is a legal requirement!

So, who can you trust?

HP and ABC – a secure partnership
