The Best HP EliteBooks for Business

Posted in Articles on 17/7/2019

Whether you’re an IT manager looking to upgrade your business fleet devices, or a user who simply wants business-class performance to keep up with your important work, HP has you covered with their Elite range. HP EliteBook is a range of premium business-class notebooks made by HP. Not only are they packed with plenty of power and performance to keep up with business, but they are also designed to meet military MIL-STD-810 standards for reliability and performance – even under extreme conditions including temperature, altitude, humidity, dust, shock, and vibration.

This great range comes with many great options, so it’s not an easy task to choose which device is the best fit for you. These devices do have a lot in common from their sleek aluminium designs and excellent keyboards, to their impressive security features, but they also have their individual benefits for different use types and users. In this article, we’re going to go over some of the top devices from this range and what they’re best for! But first, let's take a quick look at one particularly stand out feature of HP EliteBooks — the security. 

HP Elite Security

HP EliteBooks are ultra-secure and durable, well-armed with a suite of security tools designed to protect sensitive information. Thanks to HP's Sure security features, you can browse confidently, avoid visual hackers, and monitor and restore in-memory BIOS immediately. The available features on each device may vary based on specifications, so be sure to take a look at the specs for each model to be sure of what exactly they offer. Here's a quick look at the cutting-edge security features you'll find inside the HP EliteBook range.

• HP Sure Click, to help protect your PC from websites infected with malware, ransomware or viruses.

• HP SureView which adds a built-in privacy filter to your display that hides your screen from anyone who isn't standing directly in front of it.

• HP Multi Factor Authenticate combines hardened authentication such as fingerprints or PINs, and soft factors, like passwords and facial recognition.

• HP Sure Start Gen3 monitors in-memory BIOS, recovers the platform without intervention, restores the BIOS to a custom state, and is enterprise ready for centralized management.

• HP Manageability Integration Kit speeds up image creation and management of hardware, BIOS, and security through Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager. 

Optional features you'll find in some devices, such as the HP EliteBook 840 G6, include an IR camera for Windows Hello login, Intel vPro for remote management, a fingerprint sensor, a sliding webcam cover and more!

Now that we've got a view of the level of security you'll find in these laptops, let's get onto everything else!
