Adds HP Secure Boot and Whitelisting to HP DesignJet T1700 printers for enterprise and government
PALO ALTO, Calif., January 30, 2018 — HP Inc. today introduced
HP DesignJet T1700 printers, next-generation 44-inch solutions for CAD and geographic information system (GIS) workgroups to produce highly accurate documents and maps with powerful processing and a new level of security.
New added features on the HP DesignJet T1700 make it the most secure large format workgroup printer available today1. The improved security is designed to help enterprises print CAD and GIS applications while protecting printers and data from unauthorized or malicious access in infrastructure construction, urban planning as well as utilities industries such as oil, water, gas, and electricity.
“Security is a top concern in enterprises today as connected devices and increasingly open office spaces are pervasive. At the same time, data breaches are growing at an alarming pace. In the first half of 2017, the worldwide breach level index was up more than 160%,2” said Guayente Sanmartin, General Manager and Global Head, HP Large Format Design Printing, HP Inc. “The HP DesignJet T1700 Printer Series includes unique advanced security technologies designed to keep corporate network printers, their documents and data protected.”
Features include a new self-encrypting hard drive on the printer ensures it is only readable by the printer itself, even if removed from the device. For additional device security, HP Secure Boot ensures BIOS protection, and Whitelisting3only allows approved firmware to be installed and run on the device.
Workgroups print seamlessly with a powerful processor
GIS files are constantly growing in size with the increase in their complexity and data. To smoothly process this information and improve the printing experience of GIS practitioners, the new 44-inch HP DesignJet T1700 printer offers a new, powerful processing architecture using a 500 GB hard disk.
As the first workgroup large-format printer to embed the Adobe PDF Print Engine4, it can more efficiently handle very heavy files. As a result, PCs can be freed in virtually no time to continue working.
The HP DesignJet T1700 also brings improved color quality and precision for more accurate maps and renderings, enabling GIS workgroups to make better decisions. A new set of six HP Bright Office Inks with tuned colors profiles and a High Density Printhead deliver bold color and accurate image quality, in addition to more precise colors, including gray and soft tones.
Additionally, HP Click printing software included in this series can be used by everyone on the team to easily print project sets and PDF documents.
