France-based COFIDIS manages 11.5 million consumer-credit accounts and employs 2,700 people. The company offers services through offices in nine European countries. One of these, Lisbon-based COFIDIS Portugal, employs 430 people and is second in revenues only to the French headquarters. COFIDIS Portugal receives a considerable part of its revenues through reseller partners, who require access to COFIDIS Portugal programs to be effective. These partners require secure access to company programs without costly virtual private networks. Employees also need remote access to remain productive. COFIDIS Portugal chose Windows Server 2008 to provide this crucial access through Terminal Services. It will also benefit from Network Access Protection to ensure the continued health of its network.
