Boosted security for digital finance

Financial transactions and sensitive information are at risk online. Anapaya’s solutions restore digital confidence with secure, reliable, and flexible connectivity.


DDoS attacks are surging in frequency and sophistication – reaching 645% QoQ in 2022


Total losses of Internet scams affecting victims across the globe in 2021 were estimated at $18.7 billion


The click rate for the average targeted phishing campaign was 17.8%

Financial institutions have an obligation to protect their online transactions

According to International Monetary Fund, “Without dedicated action, the global financial system will only become more vulnerable as innovation, competition, and the pandemic further fuel the digital revolution.”

Financial services are 300 times more likely to be targeted by a cyberattack and are attacked 983 times globally every day.

You need to ensure you’re protected online against constantly evolving threats, which include:

  • DDoS attacks

  • Routing attacks

  • Network downtime and lost productivity

  • Breach containment and remediation

  • Newly-required spending on security hardware, software, and services

  • Data recovery expenses

A cut above the rest - The Secure Swiss Finance Network (SSFN)

The Swiss Financial Industry led by the Swiss National Bank and SIX raised their standards to address the above threats and created the most secure, reliable financial network in the world - the SSFN.

Every attempt like the one SCION is driving to redesign information technology with security as a design principle in mind is very exciting. And I believe that it has the potential to become an internet for business and critical infrastructure as it really addresses and resolves the operational risks.
