Cape Town - The world’s most secure enterprise multifunction printers (MFPs) in the market are now available in South Africa.

Amid a growing number of threats targeting business MFPs, HP's new A3 MFPs offers advanced security features unmatched in the marketplace.

Improving print security is a top priority for businesses; especially as less than 2% of the world’s hundreds of millions of MFPs are properly secured.

“Our customers wanted a robust portfolio of A3 MFPs with disruptive technologies and we believe we have achieved this with this range,” said HP OPS category manager Richard Stainforth.

“We are now delivering on this promise by bringing this range to South Africa. By doing so we are delivering on our mission to continue reinventing the market."

HP’s enterprise-class MFPs incorporate a comprehensive suite of security features that protect devices, data and documents, creating a layered security approach needed to combat advanced attacks.

Stainforth explained that HP tapped into its vast knowledge, gained through large-scale commercial printers, by streamlining their designs, improving print speeds and enabling higher-quality printing for a lower cost.

The new A3 portfolio includes 34 SKUs and is designed to provide qualified channel partners the ability to offer higher levels of customisation that meet a wider range of customers’ printing needs.

It also offers affordable colour via HP’s PageWide printing technology and longer device uptime via HP’s Smart Device Services technology.

Cloud-based innovation and reduced costs

HP’s portfolio of A3 MFPs – including three PageWide platforms and thirteen LaserJet platforms – benefit from the new, cloud-based proprietary service optimisation platform, HP Smart Device Services (SDS).

SDS delivers maximum device uptime by integrating advanced diagnostics, device specific troubleshooting and remote remediation capabilities into the industry leading MPS tool sets resellers currently use.

The HP PageWide Pro devices make colour printing more affordable, while simultaneously providing best-in-class print speeds. The single and multifunction devices have print speeds ranging from 35 ppm to 60 ppm (up to 80 ppm in General Office mode).

PageWide technology is also more sustainable - consuming up to one-seventh the energy of competing colour laser machines in the same class while producing significantly less packaging waste associated with supplies and long life consumables.
