HIDDN: Launching first GDPR secure solution for multifunction printers

(Oslo, 5 December 2018) Hiddn Solutions ASA (Hiddn, OSE: HIDDN) has entered into a cooperation with Office Management AS to offer secure and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliant encryption solutions for multifunction printers.  

We are pleased to enter into a cooperation with Office Management as multifunction printers today are recognised as one of the weakest links in securing sensitive data from being compromised and stolen. A multifunctional printer is an integrated and necessary tool for every office and it’s imperative to secure this sensitive information as part of the daily print-, copy- and scanning operations. This agreement with Office Management will enable us to offer GDPR compliant encryption solutions for multifunction printers and to continue to leverage on the arising market opportunites within encryption solutions, “ says Carl Espen Wollebekk, CEO of Hiddn.

A multifunction printer is a device that consolidates the functionality of a printer, copier, scanner and/or fax into one machine. All documents and files being handled by a multifunctional printer are stored and saved in the internal disc drive of the multifunctional printer, typically on a 2.5inch HDD. These discs are often being replaced and can be stolen. All information and data on the disc could then potentially be compromised. This is an increasing concern for a growing number of users of multifunctional printer solutions. It is estimated to be 80 000 - 100 000 machines in field, in Norway alone. 

Hiddn's product platform addresses the growing enterprise market for the protection of sensitive data. The GDPR directive, introduces rigorous policies for the management of sensitive data and personal information for organisations and businesses. The directive exposes businesses to potential fines up to EUR 20 million, or 4% of the company's global annual revenues, if the requirements for handling of data have been compromised.

«Hiddn is well known for its unique technology used to secure PCs, laptops and notebooks, as well as storage and back-up units, and are now also introducing the first GDPR compliant disc solutions for multifunctional printers, “ Wollebekk continues.

Office Management is a leading provider of office services in the Nordics. By implementing Hiddn’s technology for safe management and authentication, Office Management will be able to offer a fully GDPR compliant multifunction printer product to their customers to protect the disc when leaving the network of the customer.  

”Office Management experiences an increased demand for safety solutions beyond the standardised solutions for our multifunction printers. We’re pleased to announce this cooperation with Hiddn. By deploying Hiddn’s unique and GDPR compliant solutions to our security platform, we are providing our customers with the highest security standards and the most advanced authentication security solution available,” says Tom Ekevall Larsen, Country Manager for Office Management AS.
