GARDANNE, France, April 19, 2010 - Neowave will be exhibiting at the Infosecurity Europe show at Earls
Court, London, from April 27 to 29, 2010. For the second consecutive year,
the company will be present on the Pavilion hosted by the French Embassy in
London (booth D30G). This year, Neowave will demonstrate Weneo Identity, its
enterprise security solution, winner of the Sesame for best IT security
solution at Cartes & Identification, in November 2009.

Neowave's Smart Objects enable communities to offer secure, portable,
multi-service devices based on contactless (RFID/NFC) and Smart Card
technology. Representing a person within a given community, Weneo makes it
easier for the user to authenticate and access services specific to his or
her day-to-day environment. Simplified daily tasks include: purchasing
e-tickets online and validating them in mass transit systems, accessing
buildings requiring identification, logging securely into a corporate network
to access shared resources, paying in contactless mode at the cafeteria or
vending machine, signing documents electronically, etc.

The Weneo Identity solution combines the convenient form factor and USB
storage and connectivity of the Weneo family of products with AET Europe's
middleware, to ensure interoperability with an enterprise's IT and security
infrastructure. With Weneo Identity, local governments, universities,
hospitals and businesses of all sizes can deliver a single "pass" to their
users, that combines multiple security functions in a centrally managed
environment. The features include:

    - Contactless validation at the entrance of buildings and parking
    - Strong, two factor authentication to a PC and corporate network,
      including remotely via a VPN connection,
    - Strong mutual authentication to a website using SSL certificates,
    - Data storage with PIN code protected access to partitions,
    - Data encryption, electronic signature of emails and documents, using
      dedicated software and PKI certificates.

<< A distinctive benefit of Weneo as a security device lies in its
multi-functional nature, says Stéphane de Saint Albin, VP Enterprise Business
Unit and a private investor in the company. By combining physical and logical
access control, Weneo becomes a very efficient security policy enforcer,
because users need to logout of their workstations prior to exiting the
building, or in order to pay for their coffee and lunch, if a canteen card
function is also provided. Security officers really love this feature. >>
