Radianz is to connect users of its global financial extranet RadianzNet to the Securities Industry Automation Corporation's (SIAC) Secure Financial Transaction Infrastructure (SFTI).
SFTI links the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), the American Stock Exchange (Amex), the Depository Trust and Clearing Corp (DTCC) and other critical financial institutions on a network infrastructure that is engineered to remain operational during and after unforeseen events.
Roger Burkhardt, CTO of NYSE, says: "A rapid migration to the more resilient SFTI infrastructure is key to addressing the issue of telecommunications resilience that was highlighted by the loss of industry connectivity on 9/11."
SIAC says this is a key industry initiative and as a result it is offering institutions multiple connectivity options.
Radianz claims to be the first extranet provider that can deliver access to the SFTI.
