HP receives Distinguished Certification for Supply Chain
- Achieves ISO / IEC 20243 certification for corporate printers and cartridges
- Acknowledges HP’s promise to provide trusted, tamper-evident printers and cartridges
- Builds on HP’s commitment to delivering the world’s most secure printing systems1
PALO ALTO, Calif., October 7, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Today, in celebration of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, HP Inc. announced that its corporate printers and Original HP cartridges are now ISO / IEC 20243 certified. The ISO / IEC 20243 standard granted by The Open Group is a set of requirements and recommendations aimed at mitigating maliciously tampered and counterfeited products. With this certification, HP ensures that its corporate printers and Original HP cartridges follow best practices for global supply chain security throughout the product lifecycle.2
The shift to hybrid working models creates new, emerging, and more common threats. In fact, an HP study found that 45% of IT decision-makers over the past year indicated that compromised printers were being used as a point of attack as remote working increased. The security of corporate devices, networks and data has become an immense challenge for IT departments as they navigate this new work model.
“With so many people working from home, the security area has expanded well beyond the office,” said Shivaun Albright, HP chief technologist, print security. “As companies move to a zero trust approach, end-to-end, layered, integrated security has become essential. This ISO 20243 certification assures our customers that our enterprise-class printers and cartridges meet the requirements for product integrity throughout the entire product life cycle. “
HP’s ISO / IEC 20243 certification has been awarded to HP Inc. corporate printers (including LaserJet & PageWide), large format printers (including DesignJet & PageWide XL), network scanners (including ScanJet & Digital Sender Flow), and original HP toner and ink cartridges. This certification also builds on HP Wolf Security announced in May 2021, HP’s integrated portfolio of secure-design printers, hardware-based endpoint security software and endpoint security services.
