“With so many people now working from home, the security perimeter has extended well beyond the office,” said Shivaun Albright, HP Chief Technologist for Print Security. “As companies shift to a zero-trust approach, end-to-end, layered, built-in 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 product lifecycle.”

HP’s ISO/IEC 20243 certification was awarded to HP Inc. enterprise printers (including LaserJet & PageWide), large format printers (including DesignJet & PageWide XL), network scanners (including ScanJet & Digital Sender Flow), and Original HP toner & ink print cartridges. This certification also builds upon HP Wolf Security announced in May 2021, which is HP’s integrated portfolio that offers secure-by-design printers, hardware-enforced endpoint security software, and endpoint security services.
