How Much (Security) is Enough?

 When it comes to desktop and laptop security, are you doing enough to protect your users? We know from a recent Spiceworks survey that IT professionals are relying mostly on software-level security solutions—and only about half feel their desktop/laptop security solutions are highly effective. More than 45% said their security solution isn’t highly effective at preventing untrusted apps and executable programs from entering their system, and half said their security solution isn’t highly effective at stopping security threats during the boot process.

 

So… how can you head off that nagging feeling that perhaps you, too, should be doing more?

 

It’s time for a new approach, one that protects computers’ valuable data during boot up, prevents malware invasions and speeds recovery in case of attack. It’s time to add built-in, hardware-level security to helps prevent unauthorized access with pre-boot protections…features that automatically protect the BIOS and critical data in case of a successful hack.

 

HP has integrated hardware security features into its EliteBook line of business laptops. In particular, the lightest and thinnest business-class notebook on the market, the HP EliteBook Folio 1020, provides the defenses needed against today’s perilous cyber environments.

 

HP Sure Start*, a proprietary self-healing technology, automatically restores the BIOS after attack or corruption to its previously safe state—within 30 seconds. Beyond the ultimate BIOS defense system, the EliteBook Folio 1020 also offers an optional smart card reader to protect computer access beyond the password-level. To take it a step further, users can also log on using a built-in fingerprint reader.

 

This notebook features a fast self-encrypting drive as well as HP Secure Erase, which destroys all data at the push of a button, rendering it unrecoverable by even advanced data recovery tools.

 

When you factor in all the other built-in security features and free, 24-hour premium support—along with plenty of software-level protection—you have a notebook that provides comprehensive, layered protection for even the most mission-critical data environments.
