NEC and Daiwa Securities Group Inc. Launch First Phase of Largest Thin Client Implementation in Japanese Financial Industry


Daiwa aims for greater security and business continuity through a 10,000 user installation of NEC's Virtual PC Center, a complete virtual PC desktop replacement solution

TOKYO, July 9 -- NEC Corporation today announced that Daiwa Securities Group Inc. has received delivery for the first phase of what will be the Japanese financial industry's largest company-wide, thin client system. Daiwa Securities Group will implement a company-wide system with more than 10,000 NEC Virtual PC Center (VPCC) terminals covering 117 branch offices in Japan. NEC's VPCC is a complete virtual thin client and server solution and the first to truly replace the personal computer, supporting all existing PC applications with high quality multimedia delivery that replicates the familiar desktop environment.

Central management of each employee's PC environment through the use of NEC's VPCC boosts security, enhances business continuity, and decreases terminal operation management.

Daiwa Securities Group Inc. is continually aiming to improve security and business continuity. The company chose to partner with NEC for this implementation because of the unmatched completeness, quality and performance of the NEC VPCC solution.

The first phase of the implementation will be for two of Daiwa Securities Group Inc.'s companies: 300 terminals with Daiwa Securities Inc. and 1,200 terminals with Daiwa Securities Co. Ltd.

Daiwa Securities Group is planning to move its headquarters. Beyond a savings expected with individual employee PC setup during the move, the company expects to decrease ongoing terminal operation management costs with NEC's VPCC.

In addition to the 10,000 NEC VPCC terminals, the system that Daiwa Securities Group is implementing will also include several NEC Virtual PC Servers, NEC Express5800/120Ri-2 servers.
