Nordea has claimed a breakthrough in using worldwide standards in web services and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) for corporate-to-bank file transfer connections. The bank says that, for the first time, a web services connection was carried out in a real production environment. It hopes that this will improve the technical set-up for file transfer connections.
The connection will be used to provide one point of entry to Nordea for all corporate customers in the Nordic market. Finland and Sweden will be first, followed by Denmark and Norway. The bank says that the web services solution is the basis for more efficient services, increased security and adaptability to new demands set out by SEPA and XML.
