HP Releases Wolf Security to Protect Printer Users
Leveraging over 20 years of security research and innovation, HP has introduced its Wolf Security platform to better protect its PC and printer customers.
According to the OEM, the HP Wolf Security is a newly integrated portfolio of secure by design PCs and printers, hardware-enforced endpoint security software, and endpoint security services to protect customers from growing cyber threats.
According to HP Wolf Security’s Blurred Lines & Blindspots Report, the global volume of cyberattacks has increased 238% during Covid, with hackers particularly focused on targeting remote workers. The report also pointed out that endpoints connected to the internet were experiencing 1.5 attacks per minute globally in 2020. As a result, 91% of IT decision-makers surveyed said they spend more time on endpoint security now than two years ago, with a further 91% reporting that endpoint security has become just as important as network security.
“The future of work will be more distributed than ever before, with a growing number of people working from multiple locations outside the office. This will unlock exciting new opportunities for greater mobility, but it also creates new vulnerabilities,” said Joanna Burkey, Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), HP Inc.
“As the importance of endpoint security continues to grow, we saw an opportunity to create a more integrated offering for customers to simplify security and stay ahead of future threats,” said Ian Pratt, Global Head of Security, Personal Systems, HP Inc. “The leading technology of the future will be secure by design and intelligent enough to not simply detect threats, but to contain and mitigate their impact, and to recover quickly in the event of a breach, which could happen at any time, to anyone of us. HP Wolf Security is a new breed of endpoint security tailored for the future of work,” Ian added.
Rooted in Zero Trust principles, HP Wolf Security harnesses state-of-the-art technologies to reduce pressure on IT. From self-healing firmware, in-memory breach detection and threat containment via virtualization, to cloud-based intelligence, HP Wolf Security delivers comprehensive protection by shrinking the addressable attack surface, enabling remote recovery from firmware attacks, and enhancing threat data collection; and delivering high fidelity alerts.
