CFN Services, a leading provider of managed IT services to the financial services industry, announced the debut of TradingHUB, the company's highly secure cloud connecting liquidity venues worldwide with one single connection.
As a vital source of connectivity for leading, security-conscious financial services players, TradingHUB safely connects buy-side and sell-side firms to global liquidity, while providing access to the advanced trading, analytics and data services available on CFN's Alpha Platform™.
A single connection to any of the 50 global TradingHUBs deployed across the Alpha Platform enables clients to simply and affordably connect to key liquidity venues and trading partners across asset classes eliminating the need for expensive and complex market access networks, colocation and hardware. In markets with Alpha Platform Direct Connect™ (APDC), clients utilizing TradingHUB can leverage APDC's low-latency direct market access and raw, full depth of book feeds from leading global exchanges. TradingHUB reinforces CFN's reputation as an innovator in the evolving, financial markets for high performance automated trading solutions.
"We're excited to introduce TradingHUB, providing clients a more secure, agile and affordable means of accessing to today's financial markets. Through a single connection, TradingHUB opens the door to hundreds of financial markets, leading intermediaries and tier-one trading partners around the globe," said Paul Edelmann, Senior Vice President, Professional Services, CFN Services.
This addition to the portfolio of Alpha Platform offerings demonstrates CFN's commitment to client-driven innovation, security and high performance. Since last year, CFN has delivered Alpha Platform On-Demand, the first, globally-distributed, high performance public cloud for the global financial markets; enabled market access over the fastest point-to-point wireless technology; and launched Alpha Platform Direct Connect™, the company's direct market access and market data platform.
"In addition to exchange colocation facilities, we are pleased to announce the expansion into Telx's two facilities on their Clifton, N.J. datadata center campus, which offers a unique set of differentiated features for the capital markets. Effective today, with a single TradingHUB connection, clients can connect from any venue, to any venue quickly and reliably on the Alpha Platform," added Edelmann.
