44-inch DesignJet T1700 said to be World’s most secure large format workgroup printer

HP has turned its attentions to security, billing its new 44-inch printer, the HP DesignJet T1700, as ‘the most secure large format workgroup printer available today’.

Features include a self-encrypting 500GB hard drive that is only readable by the printer itself, even if removed from the device, HP Secure Boot for BIOS protection, and Whitelisting where only approved firmware can be installed and run on the device.

“Security is a top concern in enterprises today as connected devices and increasingly open office spaces are pervasive. At the same time, data breaches are growing at an alarming pace. In the first half of 2017, the worldwide breach level index was up more than 160%,2” said Guayente Sanmartin, General Manager and Global Head, HP Large Format Design Printing, HP Inc. “The HP DesignJet T1700 Printer Series includes unique advanced security technologies designed to keep corporate network printers, their documents and data protected.”

HP says the DesignJet T1700 is also the first workgroup large-format printer to embed the Adobe PDF Print Engine, so it can more efficiently handle very heavy files. According to HP, this means PCs can be freed in virtually no time to continue working.

Other features include improved colour quality and precision for more accurate maps and renderings. A new set of six HP Bright Office Inks with tuned colour profiles and a High Density Printhead are said to deliver bold colour and accurate image quality, in addition to more precise colours, including grey and soft tones.

Additionally, HP Click printing software included in this series can be used by team members to ‘easily print’ project sets and PDF documents.
