Wave CEO to Participate in Trusted Computing Panel at 2012 Secure Communications and Computing User Conference

Panel Includes Experts From Microsoft, the National Security Agency (NSA) and Fixmo

LEE, MA--(Marketwire - May 23, 2012) - Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ: WAVX) announced today that CEO Steven Sprague will join representatives from Microsoft, the NSA and Fixmo to discuss the importance of trusted computing in solving security problems organizations face every day. The panel presentation takes place Thursday, May 24th, at the 15th annual Secure Communications and Computing User Conference and Training at The Paris Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada.

Trusted computing offers compelling security benefits for global enterprises facing serious cyber threats. The technology gives organizations a new paradigm for device authentication and trusted execution, along with faster and more secure encryption based in hardware. Technologies such as the Trusted Platform Module (TPM), a cryptographic chip built on open industry standards defined by the Trusted Computing Group, can enable a myriad of advanced security features. Applications include ensuring only known devices have access to the corporate network and measuring and reporting on the health of the pre-boot environment.

Panel presentation, "Knowing Who and What Is on Your Network: Trusted Computing Challenges and Solutions for Government and Industry"

Leslie Andresen, General Dynamics C4 Systems (Moderator); Steven Sprague, Wave Systems; Rick Segal, Fixmo Inc.; Atul Shah, Trustworthy Computing Division, Microsoft Corporation; and Marianne Bailey, National Security Agency's Information Assurance Directorate.
