Network Services

The secure messaging solutions are:

  • end-to-end, based on the ownership of all components and a service and responsibility perimeter that includes the design, supply, monitoring, management and capacity of the entire service
  • secure by design: total privacy compliance that derives from peer-to-peer architecture and attention to data confidentiality. SIAnet in fact has been designed to exclude both access to data by the Network Service Provider and central data storing.

Secure messaging for access to ESMIG (target services)

The network solution for accessing ESMIG with guaranteed end-to-end service levels. Our secure messaging services allow users to connect via the single ESMIG access interface to the Eurosystem's Market Infrastructure: Target2 for the settlement of payments of a considerable amount, Target2 Securities for the settlement of securities, TIPS for the settlement of instant payments and Eurosystem Collateral Management System (ECMS) for the management of Eurosystem collateral, as well as for any future services that the Eurosystem may wish to implement.

Accesso ad EBA Step2

SIAnet is the secure messaging solution that enables access to EBA Clearing's STEP2 platform.

The participants in the STEP2 platform have at their disposal a secure messaging service designed to respond to specific needs of security, reliability and confidentiality of information, expressed by the European financial community.

The solution is based on:

  • an end-to-end service with an extended SLA perimeter
  • high security and reliability network that connects banks to STEP2 through the POPs in Milan, London, Frankfurt and Budapest
  • peer-to-peer architecture to ensure privacy compliance
  • “one-stop-shop” approach to reduce the TCO of participants
  • service model that minimises the operational risk inherent in the transport of high volumes of messages
  • 24x365 non-stop network availability.

Access to SEPA via SIAnet is made available in two ways:

  • direct member: for financial institutions or technical facilitators that must connect their payment systems directly to the EBA STEP2 platform
  • indirect member: for financial institutions that use the technological infrastructure of another direct member.

Instant payment secure messaging

The service meets the specific requirements of instant payment and instant clearing systems in terms of:

  •  low latency
  •  security
  • privacy compliance
  • scalability
  • ease of integration into any application environment
  • compatibility with the SCTinst schemecompatibilità con lo schema SCTinst

Networks for banking communities

We design and implement secure messaging networks for national and international banking communities.

SIAnet is currently the network solution chosen by the Italian National Interbank Network (RNI), EBA Clearing and the Eurosystem for ESMIG, T2S and 4-CentralBank-Network (4CBNet).

Our in-depth knowledge of technological and market trends allows us to design ad hoc network solutions, always in line with the highest standards of reliability, security, efficiency and privacy compliance.

The solution offers a wide range of value-added features that meet the most complex requirements of financial communities (including the coverage of RTGS system requirements) and that constitute a highly distinctive value proposition.

In particular, SIAnet is a privacy compliant choice, based on a peer-to-peer architecture, without a central hub, to guarantee the confidentiality of exchanged data. Network Governance may be local and the data exchanged within the community remains within the boundaries of that community. SIA is concerned with providing the end-to-end network solution, including all the necessary hardware, software and service components.
