How the HP EliteBook x360 1040 G8 keeps business information secure around the time

Be ready for the hybrid working setup this year by keeping important files safe from malware with the help of HP Sure Sense, HP Sure Click, and more.

For the past two years, working from home has been the most popular trend among professionals. Many businesses are considering a hybrid working environment this year. This allows employees to return to the office safely while also allowing them to work remotely.

Shifting to this system may necessitate upgrading one’s computers to meet their requirements. Apart from having the essential tools, such as MS Office, it’s also critical to invest in a device with reliable security measures to protect personal and business papers from viruses and hackers. This is especially important for people who frequently use public Wi-Fi.

A capable laptop that provides reliable protection is the HP EliteBook x360 1040 G8. This commercial-grade laptop is built with the latest security features that can neutralize even the most advanced malware. It’s a fitting device for the inevitable “hybrid lifestyle.”

The HP EliteBook x360 1040 G8 Notebook PC is protected on all fronts with its powerful, reliable security features.

All-around cyberattack protection

The HP EliteBook x360’s security features ensure that it’s protected on all fronts – from the BIOS down to the files. It’s built with the HP BIOSphere Gen6, which delivers enhanced firmware protection once the laptop is booted up and guards it from all cyberattacks that might compromise the BIOS.

If the EliteBook unexpectedly gets corrupted, HP Sure Start Gen6, the world’s first self-healing BIOS, will automatically restart the laptop with a safe copy of the BIOS. This is meant to help it recover from any type of cyberattack.

The main anti-virus software, HP Sure Sense, is a highly adept and intelligent defender that uses AI to search and neutralize malware and ransomware that may have infected the PC. It runs with HP Sure Run Gen4, which keeps security features functional, even if harmful malware tries to shut it down.

With business files often sent via online drives, it’s necessary for people to be careful of the links they click. Fortunately, HP Sure Click has made it safer as it opens files, applications, and web pages inside a micro VM container that isolates malicious viruses. This will make sure that people won’t accidentally download potentially dangerous software to their PCs.

Leveling up password protection

Keep unwanted eyes away from important files with HP DriveLock and HP Sure Admin. The former prevents unauthorized access to data and lets users set two passwords to lock certain hard drives.

Meanwhile, HP Sure Admin creates a digital key that people can use to access and manage their BIOS settings. They can do this from their PCs or through the HP Sure Admin app, available for free download on the Google Play Store.

With the HP EliteBook x360 1040 G8, unlock all “Hybrid Possibilities” this year. It’s not only a lightweight and dependable Notebook PC, but it also gives users the confidence to work safely. All HP devices have these sophisticated security measures, ensuring that every user is safe as they transition to the hybrid setup’s full implementation.

Visit the HP official store on Lazada or Shopee for more information, or find an authorized HP reseller near you.

Cebuana Lhuillier, the Philippines’ top microfinance provider, has introduced Cebuana Xpress (CebX), a digital software that aims to modernize the country’s microfinance market. CebX aspires to provide its clients with the whole Cebuana Lhuillier experience on a single platform, making pawning and money transfer activities simpler and more convenient.

Clients can use the app to conduct pawning transactions from anywhere in the world. New Pawn, Pawn Renewal, and Pawn Redemption are some of the options available. For pawn redemption transactions, Ka-Cebuanas can verify real-time and accurate assessments and use the app’s nationwide delivery service.

The app’s full money transfer service capabilities allow clients to send and receive money, pay bills, load eWallets and Globe and Smart sim cards, as well as do cash-in and cash-out transactions.

We do this by providing Ka-Cebuanas with digital channels and solutions that only responds to their changing needs and lifestyles, but also puts focus on the importance of accessibility and convenience as essential tools in empowering a nation of financially-included Filipinos,” Mr. Lhuillier added.

How this smartphone may help you with your everyday tasks without costing you a lot!

We’ve been working from our own locations for the past two years to optimize our work-life balance and keep connected despite the distance. We’re always seeking for ways to remain on top of our daily grind and decompress, working smarter rather than harder, from our 9-to-5s and side hustles to after-work downtime.

Our electronics have become a godsend, allowing us to maximize our time while juggling our personal and professional lives. The smart-performing OPPO A95 is designed to flawlessly sync up with your everyday bustle, allowing you to maximize productivity while also ensuring you get some well-deserved me-time.

Here are a few of the clever ways the OPPO A95 can help you achieve your goals:

Bringing Your Productivity to the Next Level

Enabling the OPPO A95 to maximize your productivity and efficiency while working is the Color OS11.1. Not only does this software allow you to customize your home screens, icons and wallpapers based on how you work, but it also lets you accomplish multiple tasks on the same screen thanks to FlexDrop. So you can take calls, note down minutes and even schedule deliveries all at the same time.

You won’t even have to fuss about lags as you juggle multiple tasks in a day. Thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 and a large 8GB RAM+128GB ROM that power the OPPO A95, smartphone lags will be a thing of the past.

Eye-Catching Content for Your Online Biz

For entrepreneurs and those who love a side hustle, content creation is crucial to boosting traffic to your page and growing your business. Play it smart with the A95’s AI-enhanced camera features, which give your photos and videos that professional touch in just a snap. With AI Scene Enhancement to optimize colors, saturation and brightness, and Night Mode to assist whenever you’re shooting during low-light hours, the only problem you’ll have is choosing which content to post on the feed.

Time to Focus on Me

There’s nothing like reaching the end of a long work day, and finally being able to put your feet up as you catch the latest episode of your favorite show, or log in to play on the virtual battlefield. The OPPO A95, powered by ColorOS11.1, helps you get there without the lags or the extreme battery consumption, thanks to its Hyper Boost technology. It even has special features like Game Space, Focus Mode and Bullet Notifications, to make sure you can stay in the zone during your after-work pick-me-up.

And with its All-day AI Eye Care, you won’t need to worry about eye strain from too much screen time. Thanks to AI Smart Backlight and DC Dimming features, you’ll have a comfortable viewing experience as you work and play.

Smart Performance All Day, Every Day

With 5G connectivity, the A95 helps you stay online so you can communicate with colleagues and loved ones, as well as stream and play without any interruptions.

All of these features won’t mean a thing if you have to keep your phone tied to a battery pack the whole day. Apart from its 5000mAh battery and 33W Flash Charging to get you started, the A95 is also equipped with several features to help prolong battery life so you can keep using your smartphone as if it was brand new. Battery Guard optimizes overnight charging by studying your sleep habits; Charging Heat Control manages your gadget’s temperature while charging; and Super Power Saving Mode and Super Nighttime Standby maximize the end of your battery life, so you can take calls even at 5%.

Although the struggle will never cease, it can be made simpler if you work smarter. You may now get PHP2,000 off the OPPO A95’s smart performance features! OPPO Flagship Stores on Lazada and Shopee, as well as all OPPO Brand Stores around the country, are offering the #SmartPerformer for only PHP13,999.
