Wave to Showcase Virtual Smart Card Solution at Gartner's Identity and Access
Management Summit Nov. 18-20
Secure, Cost-Effective Alternative to Physical Smart Cards and
One-Time Password Tokens
LEE, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/18/13 -- Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ:
WAVX) will demonstrate its comprehensive solution for activating and
managing virtual smart cards for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 at the Gartner
Identity & Access Management Summit 2013, taking place this week at
the J.W. Marriott in Los Angeles.
Virtual smart cards emulate the functionality of traditional smart
cards but do not require the use of a separate physical card or a
reader as they use the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chip on the PC.
Wave introduced its virtual smart card feature for Windows 7 last
"The Gartner Identity and Access Management Summit is the ideal forum
for us to show IT decision-makers how virtual smart cards can provide
an added layer of security for both local and remote access of the
endpoint," said Wave CEO Bill Solms. "Virtual smart cards let
organizations integrate device identity management on top of an
existing user identity management program, creating a layered
approach to security that is much more effective."
Physical smart cards and virtual smart cards offer comparable levels
of security, yet virtual smart cards deployed by Wave require no
additional material acquisition costs and are less expensive to
provision and manage. Enterprises enjoy lower total cost of ownership
and save by eliminating hardware token deployment.
The Wave team will demonstrate use of a virtual smart card for
endpoint, local and remote access.
The Gartner Identity & Access Management Summit is the premier
gathering for IT professionals responsible for IAM programs, with
more than 50 analyst-led sessions. Attendees include CISO, CSO, CIOs,
IT directors, network security managers and directors.
