Wave Systems Showcases Interoperability of Trusted Platform Module Capabilities with Juniper Networks Unified Access Control Solution at Interop

Wave Software Complements Juniper Networks UAC with Hardware-based Machine Authentication and Platform Integrity

Lee, MA and Las Vegas (Interop Las Vegas) — May 21, 2007 — Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ: WAVX; www.wave.com) today announced that the company will demonstrate standards-based interoperability between its EMBASSY® software and the Juniper Networks Unified Access Control (UAC) solution at Interop Las Vegas, May 20-25, 2007. Wave is showing Trusted Platform Module-based platform integrity with its EMBASSY software in the Trusted Computing Group’s booth #211. 

Wave’s EMBASSY software, combined with the industry-standard Trusted Platform Module hardware security chip, complements the Juniper Networks UAC solution by offering an additional layer of machine identity and integrity checks in conjunction with the UAC agent. The interoperable Juniper Networks and Wave solution can provide enhanced platform integrity through the tamper-resistant storage of client-side measurement data for applications and secure transmission and delivery of that measurement data to the Infranet Controller. This data may then be used by the Infranet Controller in the enforcement of network access control policies.

"It’s great to see the industry continue to move toward trusted computing solutions," said Karthik Krishnan, senior product line manager at Juniper Networks. "Standards-based interoperability between the Juniper Networks UAC solution and Wave’s EMBASSY software provides customers with flexibility and choice in the technologies available to them for developing and implementing their network access control architecture."

"We are very pleased to work with Juniper to extend their UAC solution to enjoy the full security capabilities of the Trusted Platform Module," said Brian Berger, executive vice president of marketing and sales at Wave Systems. "With this integration, customers will benefit from a standards-based implementation that will enhance the security of their enterprise."
