Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ: WAVX) announced that it will join industry experts, government authorities and academics presenting at the National Security Agency's 2nd Annual Trusted Computing Conference (, September 20th - 22nd at the Caribe Royal Hotel in Orlando, FL. The conference provides a unique forum for those interested in how trusted computing technologies can improve the security of sensitive data, enterprise networks and critical applications. Wave Systems' customer PricewaterhouseCoopers will also present a session on leveraging Trusted Platform Modules (TPMs) for authentication and key security.

"Wave is honored to participate in this one-of-a-kind event for the second year in a row," said Wave CEO Steven Sprague. "This event demonstrates NSA's commitment to cybersecurity, especially in a time of rapidly-changing threats that demand innovation and collaboration from all players. Wave is pleased to contribute to this discussion and looks forward to working with other participants to help advance NSA's mission."

Defending sensitive networks and information from unauthorized access presents a key challenge in the face of these growing threats. But as recent high-profile breaches have shown, user credentials and tokens alone aren't enough to secure the network. In his Wednesday session, "Mitigating Today's Most Pervasive Cyber Threats with Device Identification," Sprague will outline how the TPM, a security chip attached to a computer's motherboard, can establish automatic and transparent authentication of known network devices and users. Because the TPM chip is physically part of the device, it is uniquely suited for creating and verifying strong device identities and ensuring only authorized access to networks.

Wave also recently announced Q2 software licensing net revenues rose 31% to record $8.1M.

"Throughout Q2, there were a number of high-profile network and data breaches on the global stage. The most significant of these was the compromise of a leading security token solution relied upon by a large number of Fortune 500 enterprises," commented Steven Sprague. "As these kinds of events continue to occur and receive broad media attention, we have seen an increase in interest and activity in trusted computing solutions.

"On the financial side, I'm pleased to report that we once again extended our track record of year-over-year and sequential quarterly growth in the second quarter. Given the new global focus on cyber security and related concerns over the efficacy of proprietary, software-only solutions, we've chosen to expand our investments in maintaining our leadership position in the trusted computing space at a time when we believe that many governments and enterprises are re-examining their network and data security protocols. We believe that there will continue to be receptivity to new approaches to security, such as those offered by Wave.

"But there remains much work to be done in communicating the security and ROI benefits of 'off the shelf' trusted computing solutions. We are deploying substantial resources in sales and marketing to help promote this message internationally, with a particular focus on North America and on expanding our presence in the EMEA regions. In addition, Wave will participate in the 2nd Annual NSA Trusted Computing Conference and Exposition ( September 20-22 in Orlando, FL, a forum sponsored by the NSA to educate public and private sector IT professionals on trusted computing solutions and how they are being used with success."
