HP improves security for mobile printing

HP Printer Cartridges
Hewlett Packard / HP improves security in BYOD (bring your own device) work environments with new technologies introduced in its color LaserJet printers.

PCWorld reports that to eliminate the security risks that can come with BYOD environments, such as "rogue devices" using the corporate network, HP has incorporated new technologies into its color LaserJet printers, making peer-to-peer printing "easier to manage while ensuring document security on corporate networks".

With NFC and Wi-Fi Direct, any mobile devices can connect to a printer on a network and print documents due to the technologies being independent of any firewall protecting printers, which can lead to rogue devices entering the network. To improve security whilst still allowing these features, HP has introduced an "independent module with Wi-Fi Direct and NFC that physically attaches to the printer and can easily be snapped out", meaning that the use of peer-to-peer printing can be closely managed.

The OEM has also introduced new security software, the ePrint Enterprise 3.2 app for mobile devices, adding more security barriers before users are able to printer either through a peer-to-peer connection or a Wi-Fi network.
