Riverbed announced that Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation (NWTF), one of the Philippines’ oldest and largest microfinance institutions, is advancing the human experience in the digital world through next-generation infrastructure from Riverbed. The solution transforms the way NWTF connects its clients to convenient, secure financial services, and to deliver a digital experience on par with larger commercialized banks. NWTF is an NGO that helps women in the country – particularly in rural communities – move out of poverty and achieve self-sufficiency and self-reliance through microloans.
The Riverbed solution provides NWTF with both SD-WAN and application acceleration capabilities to drastically simplify networking, improve visibility and control over IT infrastructure and accelerate the performance of applications and digital services, resulting in significant improvements in agility and user experience, while cutting cost. Achieving a more stable, reliable and secure network has enabled the non-profit to open more branches in rural areas with limited connectivity, enabling them to reach more people in need of their services.
NWTF employees, nearly 3,500 people, serve close to 450,000 clients, and they operate in more than 150 branches across 10+ islands in the Philippines. NWTF realized the necessity to give their clients in rural areas secure access to convenient financial services, and also provide a digital experience on par with the big commercialized banks – including access to mobile banking digital services – in order to help them achieve self-sufficiency.
