IoT: HP, Printing, Security Platform

Hewlett-Packard Designates Printing A First-Class IoT Security Platform:

"Printers and Multi-Function Devices (MFDs) now have more in common with PCs and servers than the printers of old. In today’s printers we find PC-class processors running a Windows or Linux operating system, storage, displays, scanners, networks, mobile access, cloud based modes and even integrated HTML-based browser and email clients
...
Simply put, enterprise IT needs to treat printers as “equal citizens” on the network—just like we treat personal computers, laptops and smartphones."(Courtesy HP)
