SFTI Network

The SFTI Network is a wide area network which provides customers with domestic and international financial markets connectivity from a single SFTI port.

We offer secure connectivity at any of the 24 SFTI Access Centers across the US and Europe including our highly resilient Data Centers in Mahwah and Basildon. Firms can provision ports ranging from 100Mb to 10Gb depending on their individual requirements.

The redundant SFTI Network infrastructure provides resiliency through physically diverse links that run on industry leading hardware and management platforms. SFTI achieves true redundancy by operating two geographically diverse networks, managing the network backbones on behalf of clients.
