    HP AND TROY-GROUP BATTLE COUNTERFEIT
    HP
    has partnered with security solutions company Troy Group to secure and
    authenticate enterprise documents in order to curb fraud.The
    announcement was revealed at the HP Imaging and Printing Innovation
    Summit 2010, held in Istanbul, Turkey.The two companies have unveiled a
    secure document printing solution that enables HP enterprise-class PCL5
    LaserJet printers to print security features on information-sensitive
    documents to detect whether a document has been tampered with.

    Detecting fraud
    Marko
    Tarkiainen, vice-president of managed enterprise solutions sales at HP
    IPG Europe, Middle East and Africa, said that one of the biggest
    challenges that enterprises face is securing and authenticating
    financial information.According to HP, many large financial corporations
    and government agencies expose their high-value documents to fraud
    through unauthorised photocopying, alteration or
    counterfeiting.Tarkianinen warned that plain paper documents are
    completely exposed to these types of fraud and pre-printed security
    paper offers some protection, but it’s expensive and labour
    intensive.The solution prints a copy-evident pantograph, which reveals a
    special pattern when any unauthorised copying or scanning occurs. It
    can also print a watermark that prints user-defined data across the back
    of each document to protect against alteration.“The HP and Troy
    alliance has introduced a security action plan to help enterprise
    customers plan to not only make sensitive data more secure, but can cut
    print costs by 30%,” said Tarkianinen.“The HP and Troy secure document
    printing solution enables organisations to print high value black and
    white documents with anti-fraud security features.”

    He said that
    any industry that is linked to paper communication needs to make sure
    that its printed information is protected against counterfeit. He noted
    that the solution is ideal for banks, government and intelligence
    organisations.“Whatever you put on paper can be scanned and copied,”
    said Tarkiainen, “Troy uses a special toner and if someone tries to copy
    it or use a liquid to try and take out the text, the ink will melt into
    the page, destroying the text and showing that it has been tampered
    with.”
