Doncaster and Bassetlaw NHS Foundation Trust Deploys Wave for Encryption and 
Data Loss Prevention 
NHS Foundation Trust Implements Safend Data Protection Suite to
Ensure Added Protection of Patient Lists, Studies, Database and
Clinician's Notes. 
DONCASTER, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwire) -- 03/27/13 --  Wave
Systems Corp. (NASDAQ: WAVX), the Trusted Computing Company,
announced that Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
has chosen the Safend Data Protection Suite (consisting of Safend
Encryptor, Protector and Reporter) to replace existing technologies
for data encryption, port device control, removable media encryption
and advanced monitoring. 
The Trust's IT team chose the Data Protection Suite for transparent
encryption, port control and removable media encryption to safeguard
data downloaded on USB sticks. Protector enables real-time traffic
monitoring and applies customised, highly granular security policies
over all physical wireless interfaces and external devices. Safend
Reporter provides heightened visibility into what data was downloaded
and when, adding an extra layer of governance. 
The Data Protection Suite has afforded greater security and
convenience across the board. Many users like the transparency, while
IT can benefit from the higher level of protection, low incidence of
problems and the peace of mind of greater visibility. Safend
Encryptor, for example, helped to eliminate the 'disjoint' between
the experience of using a laptop inside one of the Trust hospitals
and using one at home. IT could keep a cached copy of the staff's H
drives so they could work on the road with same access as if it were
a local device. 
Nigel Hall, ICT Infrastructure Manager of Doncaster and Bassetlaw
Hospitals, said: "The Trust has a reputation for excellence in
healthcare. We are here to implement an IT strategy that benefits the
business function. The Safend technology has allowed our staff to use
their devices with the confidence that they are secure. The IT
department is now more centralised than before and that suits staff
and patients alike." 
With the introduction of Safend, the awareness and training needs of
staff have been minimised. Safend Encryptor is transparent to the end
user, while having a minimal impact on performance as it avoids the
unnecessary encryption of the operating system. The migration
reinforces Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals' information governance
message to its staff through Safend and Laptop user documentation.
The constant communication between a remote asset and the central
server in real time ensures that everything on the laptop is always
protected.  
The Safend Data Protection Suite helps it comply with the Data
Protection Act 1998, the Information Governance Toolkit, and the
Department of Health's mandate that all mobile data must be
encrypted.  
Joseph Souren, Vice President and GM Wave Systems EMEA comments:
"Organisations in the public sector are becoming increasingly
scrutinised for their IT practices and protection of data in
particular. Safend Encryptor, Protector and Reporter are proven
technologies and are able to provide the Trust functionality to help
ensure the safety of patient and clinical data, as well as providing
the workforce with a suitably flexible and secure means to work."
