  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

    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."
