Wave CEO Steven Sprague to Present Paper on Modernizing the Network at the Data Security Council of India

LEE, MA--(Marketwired - Jul 11, 2013) - Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ: WAVX), the Trusted Computing Company, today announced that CEO Steven Sprague will present the paper, "Modernize the Network: Device Identity Network Meets Enterprise Needs" at the Data Security Council (DSCI) "Best Practices Meet" in Chennai, India on Friday, July 12.

An annual event, "Best Practices Meet" gathers leading members of the security community to discuss the changing dynamics of the threat landscape and evaluate defense architectures to counter advanced persistent threats. The event is coordinated by IEEE in association with DSCI.

Who: Mr. Sprague, CEO of Wave Systems

What: The paper outlines how a stronger foundation for network security can be built on the identity of the device, as opposed to the user. Because network access is granted based on user identity, it leaves corporate networks vulnerable to advanced persistent threats and socially engineered hacks. The cable and cellular phone industries have successfully adopted this model, and are now less vulnerable to attack.

Where: Mr. Sprague will appear via video conference at DSCI "Best Practices Meet" at the Hyatt Regency 365 Anna Salai, Teynampet, Chennai

When: Friday, July 12, 3:30 p.m. (local time in Chennai)
