HP Inc has announced new enterprise printing services.

HP Inc has launched new print consulting services and solutions which will help organisations to scale up print fleet while enhancing control.

The security technology and enterprise expertise includes a powerful new HP FutureSmart firmware release for HP Enterprise-class printers and MFPs, Immersive Analytics Service and the integration with both McAfee Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) and Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) - an industry first for print devices.

"Empowering customers to take full control of their work environment is central to our office reinvention strategy," said Tony Bssat, General Manager of the Office Printing Solutions business at HP. "The services and solutions unveiled today provide a step forward in seamless intelligence and industry-leading security solutions."

The HP FutureSmart 4 Firmware for enterprise printers and MFPs provides a cleaner and more intuitive interface for users. The update features new capabilities, including Serverless Job Accounting that enables printers to record analytics without requiring a central server and empowering select print settings to be mirrored via USB to new printers - vastly speeding setup.

HP FutureSmart 4 will ship with new HP devices, and can also be applied to HP devices with HP FutureSmart firmware back to 2012 models.

For security, the HP is offering integration with Microsoft SCCM, to enable IT managers to to use one tool to configure printer security in concert with all other SCCM-connected devices on the network; and McAfee SIEM, which will give IT and security personnel actionable intelligence to prioritise, investigate and respond to potential malware attacks on HP printers.

HP has also launched the Immersive Analytics Service, which leverages HP Labs' advances in visualisation and analytics, to give customers a more immersive view of the key driving factors in their print environment. Through this in-depth engagement, HP consultants can help customers quickly pinpoint behaviours to accelerate digitisation, efficiency gains and risk reduction.
