BIOS, or simply put the device firmware, is a set of computer instructions in firmware which control the input and output operations of the system. Thus, it is a very attractive target for cyber attackers. The cyber-attacks that are getting frequent day-by-day, it is very easy that you might miss a threat or two to your BIOS easily! Also, with attacking tricks available on public domain, it has become very easy for hackers to crack the systems if not protected well.
HP understands the need to protect your BIOS, and hence it devised the innovative solution HP Sure Start.
HP Sure Start routinely detects, stops, and recovers from a BIOS attack or corruption without any IT involvement. It also interrupts the user very less and does not hinder user productivity. Each time the EliteBook boots, this feature validates the integrity of the firmware code to ensure that the machine is protected from spiteful attacks. Once the EliteBook is functioning, the run-time intrusion detection constantly monitors memory.
HP Sure Start is HP’s matchless and innovative approach to provide advanced firmware protection and robustness for HP EliteBooks. The feature uses hardware enforcement via the HP Endpoint Security Controller (HP ESC) to provide fortification of the BIOS that reaches well beyond the industry compliances and ensures that the system will only boot Genuine HP BIOS. Also, if HP Sure Start detects any anomaly or tampering with BIOS, firmware, or runtime System Management Mode (SMM) BIOS code, it can recover with a backup copy.
Thus, you can always be sure that your EliteBook security will not be compromised through your BIOS. This feature is provided across the entire 2018 EliteBook product line.
With a wide range in EliteBook series, you can be sure that there is always one model created for your business requirements.
