U.S. Army Awards Wave a Contract for the Design of Encryption Management for Vehicle-Based Mobile Computers(March 27, 2012)
LEE, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/27/12 -- Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ: WAVX) announced today that it has received a contract from the U.S. Army. Under the terms of the contract, Wave will provide labor, equipment and management to implement solutions for the Army's self-encrypting drives (SEDs) in support of Army operations.
The Army is exploring the enablement of SEDs with Trusted Platform Modules (TPMs) in its systems in order to mitigate the possibility of data being compromised if hardware were to fall into enemy hands. Wave has been retained to provide expertise in the area of SEDs and TPMs to help yield the maximum security advantage of these technologies while minimizing the disruptive impact to Army's fielding and sustainment. Wave will also provide vital engineering support to Army missions in support of continental U.S. and overseas operations.
"This contract affirms the value and leadership that Wave brings in leveraging embedded security for mobile endpoints operating beyond the network perimeter," said Steven Sprague, CEO for Wave. "We're delighted to have the opportunity to help ensure that mission-critical data and communications remains under the secure control of central command at all times."
Trusted computing standards provide capabilities that can be leveraged in many mission systems where device assurance and integrity and data protection are required. As the adoption of trusted computing continues to grow across all platforms, there are many ways this industry-standard technology can be leveraged to reduce costs and improve security and assurance of any computing system. Wave provides the expertise and solutions to realize the security benefits of the industry standards.
While Wave's fees under this contract will be modest, the company views this as an important application of trusted computing solutions by the Army.
