NEC Supplies Bank With Virtual PCs

IRVING, Texas -- NEC Corporation of America, a premier provider of IT, network and identity management solutions, today announced a successful first-phase implementation and operation of NECs Virtual PC Center (VPCC) at the New York Branch of Sumitomo Trust & Banking Co., Ltd (STB). The complete virtual PC solution provides STB with a remote terminal system for business continuity in a time of disaster. This implementation is the first virtual PC deployment by a Japanese bank’s overseas branch. The primary goal of the system was internal security and business continuity via secure remote access for strategic business users.

“The beauty of NEC’s VPCC system is that STB can securely store data and applications within the controls of the data center and enjoy a new level of business continuity without impacting the user experience,” said Toshiaki Furusawa, vice president, department manager of IT at Sumitomo Trust & Banking Co., Ltd. “It is much simpler to deploy and manage a solution that allows authorized personnel to access the company network through any VPCC thin client device and work as if using a traditional PC with its familiar desktop multimedia environment.”
