HP's New Network Security Video Stars Mr Robot

By Gizmodo Australia on at

HP's slick new video series — promoting network printer security, of all things, and by proxy selling its own network printers — stars Christian Slater as the Wolf, a hacker taking down big businesses while dressed to impress.

HP says that "although many IT departments rigorously apply security measures to individual computers and the business network, printing and imaging devices are often overlooked and left exposed."

HP's take is very clearly inspired by the characters and events of Mr Robot — and we have no problem with that. It's a really slick, high-production-value production with a useful message.
