MSYS has a shell which although the executable is sh.exe is actually
bash AFAIKT. It and mingw also have the traditional download +
untar/unzip install method rather than an installer which are not
allowed in secure/locked down environments. You can then add whatever
cli executables you wish from whereever you wish, including GnuWin32. 

But why would a shell be a concern when you can do everything from
within emacs?  &8->
