Also related to Wave Systems, Mr. Joel Achramowicz, Managing Director, Equity Research, Merriman Capital, Inc., said, "How can we ensure security and authenticate external access to data at the systems level when employees are using all types of mobile platforms at remote locations?
"This concern caused us to become interested in developments in Trusted Computing and the TCG consortium. It seemed evident to us that endpoint security will be one of the next major system challenges for multi-nationals around the world. We believe that the TCG standards can help these institutions regain control of their distributed, mobile workforces with some modicum of secure computing based the TCG standards platform. Every mobile device it seems to us must have a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for reliable authentication. Moreover, every disk must have a controller that can encrypt data directly on the drive to protect this critical and vulnerable data store -- particularly on laptops and tablets. We call these drives Self-Encrypting Drives (SEDs). The TCG is evangelizing the incorporation of TPMs, SEDs and critical endpoint security polices its established to ensure better computing security for the new era of ubiquitous mobile interactions.
"Some of the companies we like that are championing TCG standards going forward include Microsoft with its forthcoming Windows 8 platform; Wave Systems with its comprehensive set of software applications that can manage disparate endpoint devices at the systems level; and, we're intrigued about ARM Holdings, which has recently joined the TCG and is we believe planning to incorporate TCG standards into its popular processor cores."
