Wave to Demonstrate Complete Enterprise Management of Trusted Platforms for the Department of Defense at C4IST Exhibition

Demonstrations to Highlight Wave’s Management Capabilities for Trusted Platform Modules (TPM) and Full Disc Encryption (FDE) Hard Drives for Advanced Data Protection

Lee, MA and Ft. Huachuca, Ariz. (AFCEA Command, Control, Communications, Computers & Intelligence Systems Technology Exhibition, Booth #212) — October 2, 2007 — Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ: WAVX; www.wave.com ), today announced it will conduct demonstrations of its EMBASSY® line of interoperable software for managing trusted platforms throughout the enterprise—designed to significantly strengthen the protection of sensitive information assets on enterprise PCs. The C4IST Exhibition runs from October 2 – 4, at the Ft. Huachuca Army Base in Arizona.

At C4IST, Wave will show how its EMBASSY software can leverage the security potential of the Trusted Platform Module (TPM), an open standards security chip on the motherboard of the PC that serves as a tamper-resistant storage vault for user credentials. In addition to showing its client-side software, Wave will demonstrate its EMBASSY Remote Administration Server (ERAS), which enables IT administrators to turn on, establish ownership and maintain control over all of the TPMs in the organization.

The Department of Defense (DoD) has focused on the role of the TPM chip in protecting critical information assets. In July the DoD issued a memo mandating encryption of all at-rest data on mobile devices and requiring that all new computer assets—servers, desktops, laptops and PDAs—include this security chip. Using the TPM allows organizations to bind critical security functions, including data encryption to platform hardware, creating a new level of security.

"The TPM is an essential component in complying with Defense Department-wide security requirements," said Steven Sprague, CEO at Wave Systems. "With TPM technology readily available, organizations now need to establish proper administrative ownership and lifecycle management of their TPM-equipped PCs. Wave is committed to providing the tools to make managing and using the TPM infrastructure a seamless and integral part of their IT process."

Management of Trusted Drives
Wave will also be demonstrating Wave’s Trusted Drive Manager and ERAS, software for managing the Momentus® 5400 FDE.2 drive from Seagate Technology.
