Deploy endpoint encryption technologies with Wave Cloud 2014
Posted on 26 September 2013.
Wave Systems launched Wave Cloud 2014, a cloud-based service for enterprise-wide management of endpoint encryption. It includes management of Windows BitLocker and Mac FileVault in addition to self-encrypting drives (SEDs), enabling the service to handle the complete spectrum of embedded endpoint encryption technologies.


SEDs provide one of the best defenses against data breach. Based on the Opal specification published by the Trusted Computing Group, the drives are available from leading storage vendors at little to no incremental cost from a wide range of PC suppliers, including Dell, HP, Lenovo and others. Solid-state versions of SEDs are also available. Advantages over software encryption include better performance, faster deployment and enhanced security. In addition, SEDs are transparent to the user and easy to administer.

Wave Cloud 2014 Advantages for SED Management Include:

Rapid deployment. Available and deployable via the internet, Wave Cloudís point-and-click interface can enable most deployments to complete in less than three days.

Capital-efficient. Wave Cloud requires no on-site servers, and subscription fees scale to match the scope of endpoint protection that customers deploy. Pay only for what you use.

Better performance. Because encryption happens on a chip within the SEDís drive, it doesnít compete for processing cycles with the laptopís CPU or slow down running applications.

Enhanced security. An SEDís encryption is always on and cannot be turned off or otherwise compromised by the end user. SEDs are also designed to protect against cold-boot or side channel attacks.
