SC Magazine Awards EMBASSY Remote Administration Server 4 1/4 Stars in Its Endpoint Security Review

Leading Security Publication Lauds Wave Server's Capabilities for "Managing Device Encryption Across the Board Cleanly, Quickly and Easily"

LEE, MA--(Marketwire - Aug 13, 2012) - Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ: WAVX) today announced that its EMBASSY Remote Administration Server, a powerful console for managing embedded hardware security including Trusted Platform Modules (TPMs) and Self-Encrypting Drives (SEDs), was awarded four-and-a-quarter stars in SC Magazine's recent review of endpoint security solutions. The full review can be found here.

SC Magazine's Technology Editor focused the review primarily on ERAS' encryption management capabilities, noting: "Deploying full hardware-based encryption throughout the enterprise can be a tricky feat in many environments. This is where the EMBASSY Remote Administration Server, or ERAS, from Wave Systems shines the brightest." He added, "Administrators can use this product to quickly and easily manage many types of both hardware- and software-based encryption throughout the enterprise."

In the categories of "performance" and "ease of use," Wave garnered five stars.

SC Magazine also lauded the added functionality of ERAS when paired with the Safend Data Protection Suite from Wave, detailing the "full security policy templates for International Bank Account Number (IBAN), payment card industry (PCI), and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), among many others."

"This exemplary rating from SC Magazine truly affirms the value and leadership that Wave brings in leveraging embedded security to reduce costs and complexity for the enterprise," explained Steven Sprague, CEO of Wave Systems. "Today's IT managers need to think beyond just encryption alone, ensuring there are policy-based access controls, centralized administration and proof of compliance. The goal of ERAS is to cover all the bases, while making it easier than ever before."
