The Screening Utility is a portal application hosted in SWIFT's secure infrastructure. It currently provides access to the Transaction Screening, Name Screening and Payment Controls services. Customers use the Screening Utility portal for all interactions with these services as such:
- User and business management
- Set up and configuration
- Alert management
- Audit functions
SWIFT’s Name Screening service offers banks and corporates a simplified customer on-boarding thanks to a fast online lookup tool using a large set of lists managed by SWIFT (Sanctions, PEP and Adverse Media) and an easy alert investigation (lists activation audit, linked alerts, embedded workflows).
It also ensures up-to-date customers and suppliers risk profiles thanks to an ongoing batch screening of entire databases and very detailed screening policies, allowing you to control your risks and protect your business.
SWIFT Payment Controls combines real-time monitoring, alerting and blocking of sent payments, with daily reporting. It helps institutions detect and prevent high risk payments and mitigates business disruption and financial losses in the event of back-office compromise.
SWIFT Transaction Screening is a centralized SWIFT service that screens MT messages sent and received over the SWIFT network. For customers that subscribe to the service, the selected messages are routed to a central application that screens the messages against public sanctions lists in real time.
