Wave to Demonstrate Enterprise Data Security Solutions at Cartes Show in Paris, Nov. 7-9

Lee, MA — November 6, 2006 — Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ:WAVX www.wave.com) announced today that it will demonstrate its EMBASSY line of enterprise security software at the Cartes IT Security trade show, November 7-9, at the Centre des Expositions in Villepinte, France ( www.cartes.com ).

Wave representatives will be on hand at Infineon’s booth (4J 002) as fellow members of the Silicon Trust organization, created by Infineon in 2003 and comprised of other security partners. Wave will demonstrate the advanced functionality of its EMBASSY Trust Suite 2.3 software which, when combined with an industry standard security chip called a trusted platform module, enables organizations to protect data, manage passwords and perform strong pre-boot authentication.

Protection of sensitive enterprise and customer data has become a high priority and the focus of many new government and industry regulations. Many enterprises have been looking for more integrated data security features that are easy to use and are designed to provide constant protection. In addition, many enterprises need the assurance that encrypted data can only be accessed by authorized and authenticated users.

In addition, Wave will also have a model of Seagate Technologies’ Momentus 5400 full disc encryption hard drive on hand. Last week, Seagate announced the availability of its DriveTrust Technology, a new security platform designed to protect data on the hard drive. Support for the hardware-based security platform is integrated into Wave’s EMBASSY Trusted Drive Manager, a plug-in component to the EMBASSY Trust Suite, designed to work in conjunction with Seagate’s DriveTrust to offer comprehensive security functions, including drive activation, drive security policy setup, automated key and password management, strong access control, and instant data destruction for repurposing or drive disposal.
