Fundtech’s subsidiary BBP has received the SWIFTReady Connectivity label. Only four SWIFT service bureaus have achieved the certification, which recognises BBP as one of the ‘best in class’ shared connectivity providers.
The SWIFTReady Connectivity label is based on in-depth inspection and audit by SWIFT specialists, and has been established to assist SWIFT customers in identifying shared infrastructure providers that host and operate their own connectivity.
Peter Vermeulen, SWIFT’s business development manager, responsible for service bureaus said: “We congratulate Fundtech’s BBP for achieving the SWIFTReady Connectivity label. It recognises BBP among the shared infrastructure providers who offer greatest security and resiliency for end-users connecting to SWIFT.”
