Often when we think “self-healing,” we think of nature – or cells, more specifically. Our bodies are constantly in a state of regeneration, warding off that which threatens our equilibrium. The same is true of animals. Recently, researchers discovered self-healing characteristics in giant pandas’ teeth. They found that their enamel is capable of responding to damage at a microscale and repairing damage caused by consuming a diet of tough bamboo. In other words, their self-healing ability plays a significant role in their survival.
According to Christoph Ruef, VP & GM, Americas Printing, HP Inc., endpoint security is one of the largest stumbling blocks organizations face when protecting themselves against digital threats. “Everyday devices, like personal computers and printers, risk infiltration by bad actors,” he says. “By embracing self-healing technology that mitigates threats without users needing to do a thing, both private and public-sector organizations can futureproof themselves,” he says.
