Wave Systems, a Massachusetts-based provider of security, data protection, and encryption solutions, today announced that it has received a contract from the United States Army to provide labor, equipment and management to implement solutions for the Army's self-encrypting drives (SEDs).

According to Wave, the Army is exploring the enablement of SEDs with Trusted Platform Modules (TPMs) in its systems in order to reduce the risk of sensitive data falling into enemy hands if such enemies were able to get their hands on hardware.
