Wave Cloud Adds Encryption Management Support for FileVault and BitLocker

Wave Systems launched Wave Cloud 2014 this week, the newest release of its cloud-based service for endpoint encryption management.

Wave Systems launched Wave Cloud 2014 this week, the newest release of its cloud-based service for endpoint encryption management.

Wave Cloud 2014 now enables enterprises to manage self-encrypting drives (SEDs), along with Windows BitLocker and Apple’s FileVault management, all in the cloud and through a single console.

“With the new functionality and enhancements that we’ve added to the 2014 release, customers will now be able to manage OS-native encryption including BitLocker and Mac FileVault on their current equipment, while phasing in and managing SEDs in the same console,” said Steven Sprague, CEO of Wave Systems. “This is a significant step forward and can help even more companies protect their sensitive data.”

Wave Cloud 2014 can now be used to manage the full spectrum of native endpoint encryption technologies, and is built on a web platform that improves the customer experience and can scale to millions of devices, the company said.

Self-encrypting drives, offer better performance, faster deployment and enhanced security over software-based solutions, and provide a great defense against a data breach, the company said.

Wave Cloud 2014 Advantages for SED Management Include:

• Rapid deployment. Available and deployable via the Internet, Wave Cloud’s point-and-click interface can enable most deployments to complete in less than three days.

• Capital-efficient. Wave Cloud requires no on-site servers, and subscription fees scale to match the scope of endpoint protection that customers deploy. 

• Better performance. Because encryption happens on a chip within the SED’s drive, it doesn’t compete for processing cycles with the laptop’s CPU or slow down running applications.

• Enhanced security. An SED’s encryption is always on and cannot be turned off or otherwise compromised by the end user. SEDs are also designed to protect against cold-boot or side channel attacks.

Wave Cloud 2014 subscriptions start at $37 per license per year and is available for Windows 7, Windows 8 and Mac OS X Mountain Lion.
