An on-premises Alliance infrastructure offers SWIFT customers many benefits.
However, financial institutions face many challenges when running an Alliance infrastructure in-house, including:
- Industry pressure on security, regulation and resourcing
- The rapid pace of technological change impacting operations
- Managing the inherent risks of running a critical infrastructure
SWIFT’s Alliance Managed Operations (AMO) service addresses these needs by remotely operating, monitoring and managing the Alliance infrastructure on your behalf.
Risk is minimised with best-practice installation and day-to-day operation of the environments. As the creators of the platforms, we are ideally positioned to offer prompt and effective support.
We assign customers a dedicated Operational Delivery Manager, a product expert who manages operations with the same convenience as if they were on-site – but at a fraction of the cost.
We monitor the infrastructure in near real-time and, in case of issues, can quickly trigger action.
Regular failover testing
We work with you to implement the most effective failover and recovery procedures to minimise the business impact of any incident.
Reduce cyber risks
As the developers of the Alliance infrastructures, we ensure the systems meet operational and security best practices, including adherence to the SWIFT Customer Security Programme (CSP).
