SWIFT customers can now use the public cloud and no longer have to maintain their own data centers. They have the option to connect via Alliance Connect Virtual
. This is a new type of connection, which makes it possible to deploy SWIFT VPN connections with a public cloud provider.
SWIFT noted that this move is part of the realization of its mission. The company noted that it has always supported its customers' strategies to work with cloud solutions.
"Cloud technology has been game-changing for the financial industry over the past decade and will be a key enabler of future forms and flows of money," says Stephen Gilderdale
, Chief Product Officer at SWIFT. "We are proud to build upon our existing success with cloud strategies to help our community securely access the SWIFT network across the globe with ease and to benefit from the power of the public cloud."
