Citizens Equity First Credit Union Deploys WLANs with Cloud-Based Control

A member-owned financial cooperative, Citizens Equity First Credit Union (CEFCU) is one of the largest credit unions in the U.S. with over 300,000 members nationwide. When the organization wanted to equip 20 of its member centers with wireless networking, it needed to minimize demands on its IT staff. Having previously enlisted Burwood for security, network, and data center upgrades, the Illinois-based credit union selected the firm to recommend and implement a value-added wireless solution.

Citizens Equity First Credit Union uses virtualization to improve user experience

Citizens Equity First Credit Union (CEFCU) is a member-owned financial cooperative with close to 300,000 members nationwide. Their ability to provide secure and reliable access to financial applications is critical to meeting member expectations. In 2013, the CEFCU IT department was faced with renewing their current data platform agreement as a means to continue hosting these essential applications. Rather than simply renew with their existing provider, CEFCU wanted to explore the possibility of expanding their existing virtual environment to yield a more cost-effective, forward-thinking storage solution.

"I think of Burwood as my parachute, my life raft. When I can't come up with a solution to a problem, I know Burwood can."
