Low cost internet connectivity to SWIFT. Connect using one active VPN and a single internet service provider (ISP), or improve resilience with two active VPNs and two ISP connections. Connect via a private VPN connection from one of our four selected Network Partners (when using one active VPN) with an internet connection as providing a resilient back-up (if using two active VPNs). With Alliance Connect Silver Plus, you can use the internet line as your primary connection and the Network Partner line as a back-up. Offering connectivity to SWIFT through two, three or four private VPN connections of equal capacity, Alliance Connect Gold offers the highest service level and resiliency.
