The version of the EMBASSY Trust Suite consists of a set of applications and services that is designed to bring functionality and user value to TPM-enabled products. The EMBASSY Trust Suite includes the EMBASSY Security Center (the ESC), Trusted Drive Manager (TDM), Document Manager (DM), Private Information Manager (PIM), and Key Transfer Manager (KTM).
The ESC enables the user to set up and configure the TPM platform. In addition to the basic function of making the TPM operational, ESC is designed to enable the user to manage extended TPM-based security settings and policies, including authentication, Windows logon preferences to add biometrics and streamlined password policy management.
During 2009, the company worked with other disk drive OEMs, such as Toshiba, Fujitsu, and Hitachi to develop support for their self-encrypting drives which are based on the new TCG storage specifications. Enterprises can also select Wave's EMBASSY Remote Administration Server for the centralized administration and management of the drives, which are designed to provide detailed event logs for compliance reporting.
Data Protection is addressed by the DM, which provides document encryption, decryption and client-side storage of documents. The DM, which works with Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office, secures documents against unauthorized users and hackers. The company's software is Windows Vista ready and builds upon the operating system's data protection feature set, providing EMBASSY solutions for data protection and authentication.
To help improve the password issues, PIM uses the TPM to store and manage user information, such as user names, passwords, credit card numbers and other personal information. It retrieves login information to fill in applications, Web forms and Web login information. It retrieves login information to fill in applications, Web forms, and Web login information.
Backup and recovery of keys used for logon, signing, and protection of data is an essential requirement for deployment of TPM-based systems. KTM is an archive application for the cryptographic keys that is designed to provide a method to archive, restore and transfer keys, having the property of being migratable, that are secured by the TPM.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
