Wave's EMBASSY® Remote Administration Server was recently mentioned by name in a CSO Online article about self-encrypting drives. “SEDs are becoming more popular as businesses realize the importance of security data at rest,” states the article. It appears as though, once again, Wave was ahead of its time. According to the author, the key selling point for SEDs isn't just that they encrypt data, but that it's carried out in the firmware of the drive. The encryption-key is kept on-chip, making it impossible for it to be intercepted and thus allow an intruder to gain access to the data on the drive. The article goes on to explain how SEDs work and how, with the right implementation, they add another layer of security and are just plain good for business.
