Offices the world over are becoming lean, shunning physical boundaries, while co-working places have become the new norm where you need a small yet “always connected” place for video conferencing, presentations and quick meetings that can happen next to the coffee vending machine amid integrated social spaces to unwind.

HP Inc, which is a leader in both the commercial and home PC categories in India, has now embarked on a new journey: To help young entrepreneur in the country carry and experience office on the go.

According to Vickram Bedi, Senior Director, Personal Systems, HP Inc. India, the office of the future is not limited to just any building or physical space.

“It could be in a cafe or could be at your home. Basically, it’s one powerful and secure device that you carry with certain set of accessories. This is how people like to work in India now because they don’t want to be confined just to a cubicle,” Bedi told IANS in a free-wheeling chat.

The modern workplace, for Bedi, would have three distinct features: Design, security and collaboration.

“These are agile workplaces for individual productivity. They have more informal, meeting areas, interactive conference rooms with end-user optimised devices housing modern embedded security. This is what HP Inc is aiming to provide not just to large enterprises but to millions of small and medium businesses (SMBs) in India,” the HP Inc. executive emphasised.

Offering a plethora of laptops and convertibles like Envy, Elite, ZBook and the amazing Spectre – HP Inc has now entered the race to provide a modern office environment.

To simplify meetings with stress-free setup, the HP Elite Slice Gen 2 is an intuitive interface compatible with Skype room systems that allows for better conference call management on HP conferencing displays.

You can enjoy on-demand calling, add attendees and share content with one touch on the “Center of Room Control”.

The system isolates voices with advanced HP Noise Cancellation for clear communication and cast your team in the best light with optional cameras.

HP ShareBoard can transform any dry-erase whiteboard into an online collaboration system and HP Elite Presenter mouse can highlight content with the virtual pointer, in room, on screen.

The use of audio-conferencing is expected to double in the next five years and to facilitate the collaboration, HP has the world’s most versatile Thunderbolt Dock. The HP Thunderbolt Dock G2 with HDMI Adapter is expected to be available later this summer.

“A conference room is not just a conference room any more. Next to the coffee machine could also be a conference area. It’s definitely a collaboration area and already a lot of collaboration already happens in those spaces. The challenge is how to equip these areas for collaborations that happen remotely,” Bedi told IANS.

In the calendar year 2018, HP Inc led the overall India traditional PC market with a 31 per cent share, according to the International Data Corporation (IDC). The company led the commercial segment with key strategic wins in enterprise accounts in IT/ITES vertical.

 There has been a 26 per cent increase in Cyber Attacks in India and Mumbai, New Delhi and Bengaluru together accounted for roughly 38 per cent of all attacks in the July-September period, a new report said on Wednesday.

The report prepared by Bengaluru-headquartered telecom solutions provider Subex identified over 3,500 modular malware samples in the country, registering a whopping 37 per cent increase.

Smart cities, financial services and transportation sectors lead the rankings in terms of cyber attacks, said the “State of Internet of Things (IoT) Security Report” for the third quarter (July-September period).

“As the digital footprint of India increases through capital intensive projects, hackers are targeting data and large scale disruption like never before,” said said Vinod Kumar, Managing Director and CEO, Subex.

“The increase in cyber attacks against the country and the strong geopolitical correlation indicate high levels of interest in targeting our critical infrastructure. Hackers are working to improve their ability to monetize cyber attacks,” he warned.

Malware of varying degrees of sophistication are being reported from a variety of deployments, including new projects surrounding renewable energy.

Most malware detected (36 per cent) could be traced to sources on the Dark Web while as much as 14 per cent of malware couldn’t be traced to a known source pointing to the arrival of new actors and malware shops on the scene,” the findings showed.

The detection of malware connected with critical infrastructure projects has also registered an increase.

“This implies that hackers are targeting large scale disruption and are working to increase the cost associated with managing such projects as also negatively impact future investments in them,” the report added.
