Wave Announces Comprehensive Management for Kingston's KC300 Opal SSD Drives
LEE, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/11/14 -- Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ:
WAVX) announced today it is offering full management of Kingston
Technology's line of self-encrypting solid-state drives for stronger
security and faster performance. The Kingston SSDNow KC300 is
available in a version that is compliant with the Opal security
standard from the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) and is available in
60-, 120- and 240GB capacities.
The SSDNow KC300 is compatible with Wave's EMBASSY Remote
Administration Server and Wave Cloud 2014, the only cloud-based
management solution for self-encrypting drives (SEDs) on the market.
When paired together, Wave and Kingston deliver a powerful tool to
ensure that encryption is always on, and information is protected.
"With the introduction of the Opal 1.0 compliant SSD, Kingston has
demonstrated its commitment to data security and performance, giving
end-users strong assurance that their sensitive data is safe and
secure at the endpoint," said Wave CEO Bill Solms.
Wave enables pre-boot authentication to the drive, automated user
enrollment, drive locking, emergency access, crypto-erase, policy
enforcement and remote management. Detailed event logs offer
independent verification that information on a drive is protected
should a device become lost or stolen -- essential for compliance
with the growing number of data protection laws and regulations.
"With the growing popularity of solid-state drives in today's
enterprise and the need for stronger encryption, Kingston is proud to
offer a version of its top-selling KC300 SSD that is compliant with
the TCG Opal standard," said Ariel Perez, SSD Business Manager
Kingston. "We're pleased to have in Wave, a strong partner offering
companies ease of management, flexibility and the assurance their
sensitive information is always secure."
