Illinois State Treasurer’s Office
Illinois State Treasurer’s Office Sets an Example for State Agency Cybersecurity
“Without the partnership with Fortinet, we would not have been able to shed light for other agencies, very similar to our own, on the importance of looking outside of the box for the way they do security.”
– Joseph Daniels, Chief Information Officer, Illinois State Treasurer
The Office of Illinois State Treasurer manages $36 billion in revenues, creating a significant security burden on the CIO. To address a legacy security environment that was challenging to maintain, the agency rolled out several integrated Fortinet solutions. The user interfaces and single-pane-of-glass visibility of the new infrastructure have made life easier for the agency’s security staff. They have also proven highly effective at threat detection, helping the agency excel on a required external security audit.
