HP Elite laptops just got a bit more elite! HP is known for its focus on security, and now the company is targeting organizations that seek a solution that combines strong security and advanced manageability.
A mix that works for IT administrators.
And that is exactly what this new Elite line of notebooks from HP delivers.
It integrates four distinct features that the hardware giant has developed to secure what it calls the office of the future. As explained by Alex Cho, vice president and general manager, Commercial PCs in a blog post on HP.com:
“HP is unveiling a comprehensive set of security solutions in its lineup of Elite PCs, focused on protecting not only the device, but also the user’s identity and data – making them the world’s most secure and manageable PCs.”
The first new security solution here is HP Sure Start Gen3, which protects the BIOS from malware attacks both in pre-boot and run-time. This is something that the company says makes Windows 10 even more secure for the enterprise.
HP Multi-Factor Authenticate is next, and this solution integrates Intel’s Authenticate technology to enable multiple-factor authentication and policies — and this is important because hacked passwords still are a major risk for most organizations.
Next to be highlighted is the Sure View technology that HP has developed. It reduces 95% of visible light when the screen is viewed from an angle, as you may already be aware.
And finally, the HP Manageability Integration Kit eases things up for IT managers, allowing them to remotely control and secure a fleet of HP PCs.
HP will make these new security features available on the upcoming HP EliteBook 840 G4, a sleek laptop that houses a 7th generation Intel Kaby Lake chip, up to 32 GB of DDR4 memory along with dual storage options.
These new features could certainly help HP Elite laptops become a lot more alluring for professionals and power users.
How do you see them?
