A cooperative bank founded in 1919, BRED Banque Populaire is part of the BPCE Group and one of the largest popular banks. To meet internal security standards, the French bank BRED Banque Populaire needed to modernize the 4,000 computers in its IT environment. When IT staff at BRED attended a Microsoft workshop that demonstrated the Windows 7 Enterprise operating system, the team was impressed. The bank decided to deploy Windows 7 Enterprise and manage its networks with Microsoft Application Virtualization and other Microsoft security and management solutions. Now BRED enjoys enhanced IT security and a more efficient IT infrastructure.
