BT Uses iWay Software to Strengthen Global Messaging Platform for Financial Institutions

Communication Solutions Provider Taps iWay Platform to Bring Secure Messaging to Financial Institutions Globally

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 19, 2011) - iWay Software, an Information Builders company and an innovator of enterprise integration solutions, announced today that BT (British Telecommunications plc), one of the world's leading providers of communications solutions and services, is using iWay to implement its BT Managed Secure Messaging service for financial institutions worldwide. With BT's solution, banks and other financial institutions can exchange messages securely, reliably, and in a non-repudiable manner while also cutting costs by eliminating costs related to message failures.

BT has worked with iWay Software since 2007, using the core of the company's enterprise integration platform, iWay Service Manager, to meet time-critical and cost-effective demands unique to financial organizations. BT is now also using iWay Software to ensure that every message processed by the service is encrypted, secured, and tamper-free. The BT Managed Secure Messaging service also records when each message is sent and received while informing all parties when the message is delivered. By using the service, BT's customers across the financial community can exchange sensitive financial data, both externally and internally, in a secure manner while also keeping operating costs low.

"Data quality and security is an important factor for companies like BT whose business relies on creating highly secure communication avenues," said Dave Watson, chief technology officer at iWay Software. "BT's Managed Secure Messaging service allows bankers, brokers, investment managers, treasury managers, and others to not only send reliable, secure messages, but also to increase operational efficiency by being more cost-effective."

"The ability to deliver messages securely and reliably, and in a non-repudiable manner, is of paramount importance to our customers," said Alexandra Foster, global head of Sales, BT Radianz Portfolio, BT. "By using new iWay Software tools, we're helping our customers achieve this level of communication security while also reducing failure rates and associated costs, and helping them increase their overall level of service to their customers."
