LEE, Mass., and SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ: WAVX) and Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., have collaborated to give professionals on the go the ultimate in hard drive security. Along with blazing speed, ultra-fast boot-up and silent operation, Samsungs new self-encrypting SSDs automatically encrypt information as it’s saved to the drive, an industry first for SSDs.

Full disk encryption (FDE) has already been adopted as a standard feature available in many commercial laptop and desktop systems with hard disk drives. Samsung self-encrypting drives – 256-, 128- and 64-gigabyte SSDs – provide FDE bundled with Wave’s EMBASSY® management software and are now available through at least one major OEM.

“Samsung has combined the tremendous performance advantages of solid state technology with integrated hardware encryption for drives designed especially for today’s ‘road warrior’ professionals,” said Jim Elliott, memory vice president, Samsung Semiconductor, Inc. “Business users now get the best of performance and security in a single drive. ”
