Wave to Offer Comprehensive Management for Samsung 840 EVO Opal Flash Drives 
Samsung's 840 EVO Self-Encrypting Drives Bring Strong Data Protection
and Unrivaled Performance 
LEE, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/06/14 --  Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ:
WAVX) announced today it is offering complete management of Samsung's
840 EVO solid-state drives (SSDs) to deliver stronger security and
data protection. Wave Cloud and EMBASSY Remote Administration Server
(ERAS) were both validated by Samsung for the drives, which support
the Trusted Computing Group (TCG)'s industry-standard Opal
specification. 
The new Samsung drives deliver improved sequential read and write
speeds using the industry's most compact 10-nm class 128 Gb
high-performance NAND flash memory. With up to 1 TB of capacity, the
840 EVO series offers a high storage volume and performance, even on
ultra-slim notebooks.  
The release marks an important step forward in the adoption of the
Opal TCG standard. 
"Enterprises and SMBs need powerful ways to secure their data, and
the 840 EVO series meets their security requirements in today's
sophisticated threat environment," said Jennifer Langan, director of
mobility product marketing at Samsung's Enterprise Business Division.
"The Samsung 840 EVO series uses hardware-based security to offer
best-in-class performance and data protection, and global companies
will enjoy the benefits of the 840 EVO drives, combined with Wave's
expertise in data protection." 
When paired with Wave's EMBASSY Remote Administration Server (ERAS)
or Wave Cloud 2014, the drives give enterprises improved security and
manageability capabilities. ERAS is the only management solution that
delivers drive initialization, user management, drive locking, user
recovery and crypto erase for all Opal-based, proprietary and
solid-state SEDs, while Wave Cloud 2014 is the only cloud-management
solution for SEDs on the market today. 
"Samsung has demonstrated its commitment to data security and
performance through the 840 EVO drives, giving end-users strong
assurance that their sensitive data is safe and secure," said Wave
CEO Bill Solms. "Wave is honored to support Samsung's new drive
series and to have our management suite validated by Samsung." 
The combined solution will be made available to customers through
trusted channel partners such as CDW and SHI, as well as large
original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

trend, leading the way with first-to-market solutions and helping
