Intelligent Decisions to Integrate Wave Software into ID’s Cloud and
Partnership Will Address Growing Security Challenges in the Federal Space
ASHBURN, Va. -- July 10, 2013
Intelligent Decisions (ID), Inc., a premier global IT systems integrator,
today announced a new partnership with Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ:WAVX), the
Trusted Computing Company, to deliver Wave’s comprehensive portfolio of
innovative solutions for managing data protection, authentication and malware
detection directly to ID’s government customers.
Together, ID and Wave will address a very complicated problem that government
agencies and organizations have faced for years regarding identity and
privilege access management – with the added benefits of much lower management
costs, greater compliance, and significantly improved security.
“Wave is a proven company that has established a strong reputation as a leader
in providing security and compliance solutions for IT systems access on-site
and in the cloud,” said Harry Martin, president and CEO of Intelligent
Wave software will be integrated into ID’s Cloud and Cyber Security Practices
to provide agencies with control over users’ access and privileges, while also
offering the ability to audit users’ activity on the system.
“Intelligent Decisions is one of the most respected distributors in the
federal government space, providing their customers with innovative and
sophisticated technology solutions,” said Wave CEO Steven Sprague. “Their
decision to partner with Wave will give their end users greater access to
Wave’s broad range of Trusted Computing solutions, enabling them to eliminate
the use of passwords and ensure that only devices that are known and trusted
are allowed access to the network and corporate resources.”
The agreement covers Wave’s complete portfolio including Wave Cloud which
makes mobile devices safe to lose and is ideal for managing Opal
self-encrypting devices from the cloud. Wave for BitLocker™ supports the fast
deployment of BitLocker, a native encryption feature from Microsoft. Another
Wave technology eliminates passwords and enables virtual smartcards for second
factor authentication and credential protection while using Microsoft
DirectAccess. The EMBASSY Remote Administration Server for Device
Identification ensures that only known devices are allowed on known networks.
It establishes persistent device identity that can’t be spoofed. The Wave
Endpoint Monitor checks on endpoint health and spots rootkits before the
operating system loads.
