Seagate and Wave are working together to explore market opportunities, technical requirements, and enterprise benefits which can be achieved by extending the trust capabilities of TPMs and disk drives.
Many analysts consider data the most valuable resource within the enterprise networking environment and adding new, innovative security and trust features to the data storage devices provides additional benefits to corporate and government IT environments. Ensuring that data can only be accessed by authorized computing platforms, and by authenticated users, is a key focus of IDF demonstrations.
"Wave is working with its technology partners to develop new security specifications for a wide range of components and platforms, such as disc drives, as part of its participation in the Trusted Computing Group" said Lark Allen, executive vice president, Corporate Development, Wave Systems. "Working with Seagate gives us the opportunity to accelerate the development and adoption of Trusted Computing in advanced platform configurations."
