HSBC Selects Adaptiva OneSite to Achieve IT Efficiency 
Global Financial Institution Harnesses the Power of Adaptiva OneSite
to Enhance Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) 
LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 04/08/13 --  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."
