Wave CEO Steven Sprague to Present Paper on Modernizing the Network at the Data
Security Council of India
LEE, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/11/13 -- Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ:
WAVX), the Trusted Computing Company, today announced that CEO Steven
Sprague will present the paper, "Modernize the Network: Device
Identity Network Meets Enterprise Needs" at the Data Security Council
(DSCI) "Best Practices Meet" in Chennai, India on Friday, July 12.
An annual event, "Best Practices Meet" gathers leading members of the
security community to discuss the changing dynamics of the threat
landscape and evaluate defense architectures to counter advanced
persistent threats. The event is coordinated by IEEE in association
Who: Mr. Sprague, CEO of Wave Systems
What: The paper outlines how a stronger foundation for network
security can be built on the identity of the device, as opposed to
the user. Because network access is granted based on user identity,
it leaves corporate networks vulnerable to advanced persistent
threats and socially engineered hacks. The cable and cellular phone
industries have successfully adopted this model, and are now less
vulnerable to attack.
Where: Mr. Sprague will appear via video conference at DSCI "Best
Practices Meet" at the Hyatt Regency 365 Anna Salai, Teynampet,
When: Friday, July 12, 3:30 p.m. (local time in Chennai)

The paper will be among several presented before an esteemed group of
judges, including Ponnavaikko Murugesan, Head, IEEE India Council;
Deepak Garg, Director, IEEE India Council; B M Mehtre, Associate
Professor, IDRBT; Vishal Salvi, CISO, HDFC Bank; Maria Bellarmine,
CISO, Tech Mahindra; Sunil Varkey, CISO, Wipro; Roop Chandar,
Director Global Operations, HCL.
DSCI is a focal body on data protection in India, set up as an
independent self-regulatory organization by NASSCOM(R), to promote
data protection, develop security and privacy best practices &
standards and encourage the Indian industries to implement the same.

security capabilities built directly into endpoint computing
platforms themselves. Wave has been a foremost expert on this growing
trend, leading the way with first-to-market solutions and helping
