Wave Signs Global Distribution Agreement With Fujitsu America
Fujitsu Customers and VARs Gain Direct Access to Wave's
Enterprise-Grade Management for Encryption and Authentication
LEE, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/09/13 -- Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ:
WAVX), the Trusted Computing Company, today announced that it has
signed an agreement allowing Fujitsu America to resell Wave's
comprehensive portfolio of innovative solutions for managing data
protection, authentication and malware detection directly to
Fujitsu's customers and distribution partners.
Fujitsu will emphasize the availability of Wave Mobility Pro - Tablet
Edition, which makes use of hardware security onboard tablets running
Windows 8 for seamless authentication to the network -- all without
the hassle of entering passwords. Mobility Pro also manages
encryption, including Microsoft BitLocker(TM) and self-encrypting
drives, where encryption takes place within the drive itself.
"With the growing demand for our STYLISTIC(R) and LIFEBOOK(R) models
it made perfect sense for us to join forces with Wave in making
Mobility Pro available directly to our customers who have asked for a
management solution for Windows 8," commented Paul Moore, vice
president product management and marketing, mobile products at
Fujitsu. "No other ISV offers the range of options and flexibility
for managing multiple types of encryption on various form factors,
from tablets to laptops."

empowering organizations to:

encryption that it's now standard for our client SSDs."
