LEE, MA--(Marketwire - Nov 20, 2012) - Government Security News has announced the finalists -- including Wave Systems (NASDAQ: WAVX) -- in 34 different categories in its 4th Annual Homeland Security Awards competition, along with the names of the preemptive winners in another eight categories.
In the "Best Data Security/Loss Management Solution" category, GSN identified Wave as a finalist with its Safend Data Protection Suite. Safend Data Protection Suite protects organizations from data leakage and theft with a single software product providing granular port and device control, transparent hard disk encryption, comprehensive removable media encryption and accurate content control. It provides complete protection of sensitive data-in-use, data-at-rest and data-in-motion, without sacrificing productivity.
All winners will be announced -- and celebrated -- at a gala dinner GSN is hosting at the Washington, DC Convention Center on the evening of Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012. The finalists and winners were selected by a panel of objective judges, according to Jacob Goodwin, Editor-in-Chief of Government Security News.
"We received an extraordinary number of entries," Goodwin said. "We have carefully reviewed each entry and are now very pleased to announce an exceptionally strong field of finalists."
Edward Tyler, publisher of GSN, invited government officials from federal, state and local levels -- as well as industry executives from across the country -- to join GSN at the awards ceremony on November 29th.
"Today's evolving threat landscape truly requires the government and the enterprise to utilize multi-layered security -- from making sure data is safe when a device is lost or stolen, to protecting your assets from hardware keyloggers," explained Steven Sprague, CEO of Wave Systems. "The Safend Data Protection Suite helps government organizations secure data even among an increasingly mobile workforce, and we are thrilled to be included in GSN's prestigious roundup of security offerings."
