Intelligent Decisions (ID), Inc., a premier global IT systems integrator, today announced a new partnership with Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ:WAVX), the Trusted Computing Company, to deliver Wave’s comprehensive portfolio of innovative solutions for managing data protection, authentication and malware detection directly to ID’s government customers.
Together, ID and Wave will address a very complicated problem that government agencies and organizations have faced for years regarding identity and privilege access management – with the added benefits of much lower management costs, greater compliance, and significantly improved security.
“Wave is a proven company that has established a strong reputation as a leader in providing security and compliance solutions for IT systems access on-site and in the cloud,” said Harry Martin, president and CEO of Intelligent Decisions.
Wave software will be integrated into ID’s Cloud and Cyber Security Practices to provide agencies with control over users’ access and privileges, while also offering the ability to audit users’ activity on the system.
“Intelligent Decisions is one of the most respected distributors in the federal government space, providing their customers with innovative and sophisticated technology solutions,” said Wave CEO Steven Sprague. “Their decision to partner with Wave will give their end users greater access to Wave’s broad range of Trusted Computing solutions, enabling them to eliminate the use of passwords and ensure that only devices that are known and trusted are allowed access to the network and corporate resources.”
The agreement covers Wave’s complete portfolio including Wave Cloud which makes mobile devices safe to lose and is ideal for managing Opal self-encrypting devices from the cloud. Wave for BitLocker™ supports the fast deployment of BitLocker, a native encryption feature from Microsoft. Another Wave technology eliminates passwords and enables virtual smartcards for second factor authentication and credential protection while using Microsoft DirectAccess. The EMBASSY Remote Administration Server for Device Identification ensures that only known devices are allowed on known networks. It establishes persistent device identity that can’t be spoofed. The Wave Endpoint Monitor checks on endpoint health and spots rootkits before the operating system loads.
