NEC Deploys One of Japan's Largest Thin Client Systems for Tokio Marine --- Aiming to strengthen security and reduce operational costs by 30% ---


*** For immediate use September 29, 2009

Tokyo, September 29, 2009 - NEC Corporation today announced the beginning of construction of one of Japan's largest virtual PC thin client systems as part of strengthening information security and reducing total cost of ownership (TCO) for Tokio Marine & Nichido Fire Insurance Co., Ltd. (Tokio Marine; President: Shuzo Sumi). Trial deployment of the system will begin in 2009 and installation of approximately 30,000 units is scheduled to start in 2010.
The system will utilize NEC's uniquely advanced virtual PC thin client system, the "Virtual PC Center."

Tokio Marine has implemented comprehensive internal security controls in order to constantly monitor and comply with each of the wide reaching management regulations that apply to information security. Within this framework, business and staff workload related to the storage of important information, and the procedures for managing the transport of information externally, have become challenging issues.

Thin client systems enable companies to significantly reduce the financial costs and employee burdens associated with strengthening and maintaining high security environments. Since the management and operation of thin client terminals is concentrated on a server, the terminals do not carry internal data or software. This means that burdensome implementation of management rules and monitoring that formerly took place on individual terminals is largely unnecessary. Furthermore, this enables employees to concentrate greater on their specific jobs, rather than computer maintenance, which is connected to improved work quality and higher customer satisfaction.

It is expected that the operational costs of using PCs (the full range of costs associated with operational management, including configuration of each device, corresponding layout changes, asset management, repairs, security patches, etc.) may be reduced by approximately 30%.

Looking forward, Tokio Marine may capitalize on its thin client system to implement such work-style reforms as telecommuting, business continuity plans for natural disasters and others.

NEC aims to utilize the deployment of this thin client system to accelerate its provision of future systems, which will contribute to the streamlining of customer business with strengthened corporate security, business continuity plans, work-style reforms, reduced system TCO and more.
