HP to launch Sure Click cyber protection for the EliteBook x360 1030 G2 this Spring
HP is teaming up with computer security firm Bromium to provide improved online protection for businesses against everything from malware to ransomware on employee computers. Called Sure Click, the software will block web-based security threats and will be available as a download this Spring first on the new EliteBook x360 1030 G2. Currently, the software supports only Microsoft IE and Chromium with more browsers likely to come in the future. HP is also promising that Sure Click will come to more Elite PC platforms during the second half of this year.
Sure Click functions in the background and requires no input from the user. When entering a website in IE or Chromium, the software will create an "isolated virtual micro-environment" to prevent any malicious code from infecting the computer. Simply put, any new tabs and all of its contents are first locked into the software-equivalent of a secured box to protect user data in case if viruses are detected.
Outside of Sure Click, HP also offers Sure View for select EliteBook notebooks where the user can adjust the viewing angle of the display to discourage passersby from peeking.
