Anapaya—Delivering the next generation internet. Reliable. Secure.
With an exponentially growing need for secure connections, private networks based on MPLS or similar technologies are no longer a practical or viable option. Anapaya provides secure and trusted network communications; transmitting information between corporate sites, trusted partners, and cloud application providers.
SCION Factsheet for SSFN
The SSFN is a communication network for the Swiss financial sector. It allows the exchange of data between all its members in an Internet-like manner. Over the course of 2020, the Swiss National Bank and SIX in partnership with Swisscom, Sunrise, and SWITCH as network operators, worked with technology provider Anapaya to build the technical infrastructure to power the new network.
SCION-Internet and Anapaya software
Secure communication is critical for many B2B data transmission
Today’s internet is flexible and low cost, but lacks protection against cyber risks such as denial of service attacks and traffic hijacks. While private, leased-line connections are secure, they are expensive and inflexible − precluding open, community-based communication.
SCION, a protocol developed at ETH Zurich, addresses these issues by enabling telecom providers, and realizes the vision of a global, public, and highly secure internet.
Secure Swiss Finance Network
This new network is based on a novel networking technology, SCION, researched and developed at ETH Zurich in collaboration with Anapaya Systems. Offering a decentralized any-to-any architecture, extreme reliability, protection against network-level threats, and clearly defined governance and trust anchors, the network can power and improve existing and new use-cases such as open banking and digital exchanges.
