LAS VEGAS, NV, Apr 08 (Marketwired) -- MMS 2013 -- Adaptiva, an award-winning provider of IT systems management software solutions, announced today at the Microsoft Management Summit (MMS) 2013 in Las Vegas that HSBC (NYSE: HBC) has selected Adaptiva OneSite software for deployment across 340,000 computers throughout their worldwide environment. Headquartered in London, with 6,600 offices in more than 81 countries, and assets worth $2.7 trillion, HSBC is one of the world's largest banking and financial services organizations, and one of the industry's most valuable brands. With Adaptiva OneSite, HSBC will achieve significant IT efficiencies and considerable cost savings by streamlining IT operations, extending the capabilities of Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), and slashing hundreds of existing servers, while accelerating the delivery of business critical applications, operating system images and security patches. Adaptiva OneSite works by automatically creating a micro-cloud within each network location, and combining unused disk space into virtual SANs, which are then connected together with a sophisticated WAN bandwidth harvesting algorithm. These capabilities are deeply integrated with System Center Configuration Manager, allowing complex enterprise environments like HSBC's to be managed using a much smaller number of management servers. These capabilities will allow HSBC to move large amounts of data anywhere, anytime, without investing in additional servers, storage capacity, or network bandwidth. In addition, the Adaptiva OneSite system can distinguish between critical security patches, applications and operating system images, and automatically expedites the delivery of critical security patches. According to research firm Ovum, retail banks across the globe will spend nearly $118.6 billion on information technology in 2013. With the rise of Big Data within the financial services industry, and ever increasing compliance requirements, banks need an effective and secure technology solution to better manage the mass amounts of information pouring into their network systems each day. With the help of Adaptiva IT systems management solutions, major banks can streamline their network processes, reduce infrastructure and keep their networks secure. "The financial services industry is tightly regulated and very sensitive to malicious attacks. It is imperative that institutions have the ability to instantly deliver security patches and security tools across their worldwide networks, in order to protect their mission-critical data and applications," said Deepak Kumar, CTO and founder of Adaptiva. "Our software solutions offer the financial industry IT efficiencies and enhance security while severely cutting overall costs of managing large distributed networks."
