Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ: WAVX) announced today that CEO Steven Sprague and Executive Vice President Brian Berger will speak at the Information Assurance Symposium (IAS) on securely enabling “Bring Your Own Device,” or BYOD, and authenticating to the cloud. The Information Assurance Exposition (IAE), August 28-30 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, TN, will run in conjunction with the symposium.

“The cybersecurity space is constantly redefining itself,” commented Mr. Sprague. “Currently, enterprises and government organizations are struggling to adapt security practices to consumer trends like BYOD and the explosive expansion of cloud computing. The one constant, however, is the need for collaboration, both within the industry and between industry and government. You see examples of how this can work when solutions are built on industry-standard technology such as the Trusted Platform Module. In our presentations at IAS, both Brian Berger and I will address how building on the industry-standard technology can move cybersecurity forward in leaps and bounds.”

Trusted Computing for Malware Detection and Securing Data at Rest

Wave will be demonstrating authentication, malware detection, data-at-rest, and enterprise social media solutions in its booth, #431. Using foundational trusted computing standards, the solutions demonstrated at IAE will address pressing security concerns such as Advanced Persistent Threats and how Trusted Platform Module/Wave Endpoint Monitor can alleviate those concerns, and how lost laptops containing sensitive data can be secured using centrally-managed self-encrypting drives. Wave will also be participating in the Trusted Computing Group’s booths, #239 and #241.

The IAE/IAS will work in conjunction to connect attendees and exhibitors as they discuss information assurance technology, equipment, implementation, training and education. In previous years, the IAS has attracted up to 1,800 attendees. This year, IAS is hosted by the National Security Agency (NSA), Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), and the United States Strategic Command (STRATCOM).
