Wave Systems Corp. (WAVX) Garners Prestigious GSN Award at Gala, Recognized for Homeland Security EffortsMonday, December 10th, 2012
At a gala dinner that was filled with hundreds of government officials and industry executives, Government Security News (GSN) announced Wave Systems among those awarded in its 4th Annual Homeland Security Awards Competition.
Wave Systems was named in the category of “Best Data Security/Loss Management Solution” for its Safend Data Protection Suite (DPS). Safend DPS protects organizations from data leakage and theft and provides complete protection of sensitive data-in-use, data-at-rest, and data-in-motion. The product does not sacrifice productivity, and with a single software product, provides granular port and device control, transparent hard disk encryption, comprehensive removable media encryption, and accurate content control.
Jacob Goodwin, Editor-in-Chief of GSN, stated that the winners were selected by a panel of objective judges. “We received an outstanding group of entries and have handed winners’ plaques to an exceptional group of companies and government agencies,” he said.
“A substantial amount of corporate data lives on vulnerable devices. Wave Systems’ Safend Data Protection Suite helps to protect each individual endpoint, which is critical in this increasingly mobile workforce,” stated Steven Sprague, CEO of Wave Systems. “We help government organizations secure data from a full range of ever-evolving modern risks and we’re thrilled to be recognized with such a prestigious honor from GSN.”
The Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health (DMH) successfully used Safend DPS to manage the organization’s thousands of endpoints. DMH serves about a quarter of a million residents across 130 sites in LA County, and must adhere to strict regulations that ensure the confidentiality of patient data.
“We chose Safend because it’s an easy-to-use product that guarantees connectivity and productivity coupled with topnotch security and performance,” commented Robert Pittman, Chief Information Security Officer for the County of Los Angeles, CA.

Wave leverages the security capabilities built directly into endpoint computing platforms and has been an expert on this growing trend. It has also led the way with first-to-market solutions and helping shape standards through its work as a board member for the Trusted Computing Group.
