New PS56 WLAN Print Server Utilises Multiple Security Standards

Bielefeld, April 22nd, 2008. – SEH, the printing and network computing specialist, today announced that the company will launch the PS56 print server, a new WLAN interface card, in June. PS56 is the only IPv6-enabled print server on the market that connects all HP output devices that have an EIO port to a wireless 54Mbit network (802.11g), utilising the highly-secure WPA and WPA2 WLAN encryption standards.

Contrary to the previous WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) encryption standard, WPA and WPA2 standards have not yet been cracked, and are currently regarded as the safest protection for WLANs. To further enhance security, the PS56 also includes TLS/SSL encryption, and several IEEE 802.1X authentication methods.

Maintaining maximum security for network printing in WLANs is now essential, given the trend toward utilising WLANs for fast and cost-effective extensions of cabled networks, networked operations in buildings where structural integrity is essential, mobile networks in meeting or training rooms, and temporary networks at special events.

Most Secure Encryption Standard for Printing in WLANs

The SEH PS56 print server utilises WPA/WPA2 encryption (both the Personal and Enterprise mode), which is currently thought to be the safest standard possible for WLAN access points. The standard utilises dynamic keys for encryption, providing a stronger encryption mechanism through Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). AES is mandatory for meeting the FIPS 140-2 (Federal Information Processing Standard), which outlines U.S. Federal government requirements for IT products implementing cryptography. The WPA2 standard is increasingly gaining importance in the financial and insurance industries. The PS56 is also compatible with those networks utilising the prior WEP standard, as well as the WLAN standard 802.11b.

Easy-to-Use, With State-of-the-Art Standards

Users will find it easy to wirelessly connect HP printers and MFPs using the PS56. The interface card simply slides into the respective slot on the printer unit. The PS56 is also easily configured and managed, and is IPv6-enabled. It features the latest ThinPrint .print client, including ThinPrint SSL support, as well as several authentication methods according to IEEE 802.1X. The SEH PS56, as well as all SEH high-end print servers, supports all common operating systems and protocols, and includes a full program of service and warranty.
The SEH PS56 will be available in June at a recommended retail price of about 245 Euro (excluding taxes).
