Illinois State Treasurer Case Study

Founded in 1818, the Illinois State Treasurer’s Office is dedicated to protecting the state’s financial portfolio. The agency manages approximately $38 billion, comprising local and state funds, retirement accounts and college savings plans.

A recent overhaul of the aging IT environment reduced the organization’s server count by over 90%, slashed IT-related costs by 40% and cut carbon emissions by 27 tons. To protect the new infrastructure, a security solution from one of the state’s existing suppliers was deployed, but it immediately started generating nearly 30,000 false positives a day that quickly overwhelmed the in-house team.

“I don’t want just to be sold something, I want a partnership where we can work and grow together. I continue to promote CrowdStrike because this is exactly the relationship we have built.” Joseph Daniels, Chief Information Officer Illinois State Treasurer
