This bank – one of the world’s largest – has more than 200 million customer accounts in more than 100 countries. The company is a massive global organization with more than 4000 branches across six business units, and more than 200,000 employees.

This bank, one of the top ten companies in the world, was facing several serious IT challenges as it continued to expand its operations globally. Their number one concern was securing the bank’s confidential customer and operational data. Their tape-based server backup in thousands of bank branches had led to several severe and embarrassing losses of confidential data in 2004 and 2005. At the same time, IT wanted to implement simpler, standard operating environments that could guarantee application performance, eliminate the need for regional data centers, and even provide an enhanced disaster recovery strategy. The bank was able to achieve all of these objectives with the Riverbed Steelhead appliance.
