Based on Trusted Computing technologies, Wave software provides enterprises with a new, higher level of data protection, strong authentication and network access control.

Digital Management’s Trusted Enterprise service and solution offerings incorporate Wave’s enterprise solution suite, including:

  • EMBASSY® Remote Administration Server for remote management of SEDs and TPMs

  • EMBASSY® Authentication Server for multi-factor authentication, including TPM, smart card, biometric and password

“As cyber threats have escalated beyond the control of traditional software IT security solutions, we’re proud to be a Certified Solutions Partner with Wave Systems,” said Jay Sunny Bajaj, Digital Management’s CEO. “Wave is the undisputed leader in solutions that manage next-generation Trusted Computing technologies. Our new Wave-powered solutions and services will enable us to set a new benchmark for best-in-class cybersecurity for our clients.”

“Digital Management has consistently delivered the very best security to their clients and is unique among its peers in understanding the value, relevance and potential of Trusted Computing,” said Steven Sprague, Wave’s President and CEO. “We’re excited to work with them in partnership to transform how enterprises think about and implement data protection, authentication, and network access control.”

Wave’s client software is on more than 70 million PCs worldwide and has been validated on all major platforms. TPMs are a standard component of virtually all business-class PCs; more than 350 million platforms have shipped to date.

Self-Encrypting Drives (SEDs) are available from major storage vendors and major PC OEMs.  They offer performance advantages over software encryption, as well as better security as the keys never leave the hardware of the drive controller.
