HP introduced new hardware and security solutions at its third annual EMEA Innovation Summit. HP Sure Sense is an artificial intelligence (AI)-based malware defence solution.
In addition to HP’s hardware-enforced security enhancements, HP introduced its latest line-up of 8th Gen Intel Core vPro7 based commercial PCs and mobile workstations.
Today’s workers have elevated expectations of working environments, including increased mobility, frictionless collaboration, and design that reflects their personal style. The result is an evolving and transforming workplace with more than 62 per cent of employees working from more than one location8 and 65 per cent collaborating multiple times a day9. Now more than ever, businesses need to provide their employees with technology that powers productivity, inspiration, and the exchange of ideas.
“To achieve a culture of innovation, companies everywhere are focused on driving employee engagement and satisfaction, and the technology they deploy plays a significant role,” said Anne-Sophie Hadberg, General Manager, EMEA Personal Systems Business, HP Inc. “We are helping businesses build the office of the future by delivering superior technology experiences that empower and delight today’s workers, while providing IT departments next-generation endpoint security to confidently face the threats of tomorrow.”
Reinventing Endpoint Security
In a world of rapidly evolving malware, unprecedented numbers of ransomware attacks, and increasing firmware threats, every organisation should plan for hardware-based endpoint resiliency. There are over 350,000 new varieties of malware discovered every day10, much of it around highly destructive ransomware, mandating a new generation of defence against rapidly evolving threats. Adding powerful frontline defence, HP Sure Sense1 harnesses the power of deep learning AI to provide real-time detection and prevention of zero-day threats coupled with behavioural detection of ransomware activity, all with minimal impact to system performance.
HP Sure Sense1 will be available on the new HP EliteBook 800 G6 series, as well as the HP ZBook 14u and HP ZBook 15u. The HP EliteBook 800 G6 series also includes HP’s Endpoint Security Controller which powers HP Sure Start, the world’s only self-healing BIOS15, for protection against firmware attacks, and the optional HP Sure Recover with Embedded Reimaging, to quickly reduce system software recover. Finally, HP’s updated portfolio includes optional HP Sure View Gen316, the latest generation of HP’s award-winning integrated privacy screen.
