NYSE Technologies, the commercial technology unit of NYSE Euronext, has launched SFTI Internet VPN, a site-to-site virtual private network service that will allow customers to connect to SFTI application services and a range of trading destinations using their existing internet connection.

This service provides global market access to less latency sensitive applications for users with lower bandwidth requirements (1-10Mb), NYSE Technologies said.

SFTI Internet VPN includes access to all NYSE Euronext markets, other registered exchanges, alternative trading systems, and a number of non-displayed or ‘dark’ markets across the industry.

The service will also provide access to NYSE Technologies’ application services, which include SuperFeed, Risk Management Gateway, Trading Platform on Demand, and Marketplace in addition to direct connectivity to the NYSE Euronext US Liquidity Center’s colocation facilities.

Stanley Young, CEO, NYSE Technologies, said: “In launching our SFTI Internet VPN service, we are offering our customers another useful, highly cost-effective way to manage their access to markets, their important trading information and many of our key services.

“This is a highly resilient connection to our industry-leading SFTI network that ensures a secure environment for order entry, market data and much more with a level of cost savings that will appeal to a broad range of customers.”
