Intesa Sanpaolo to use SWIFT’s 3SKey

SWIFT reports that Intesa Sanpaolo, one of the top banking groups in the eurozone, has signed up for 3SKey. This multi-bank and multi-channel solution allows corporates to securely authenticate and approve operations using digital signatures and strong authentication. It provides a single token for Intesa Sanpaolo’s corporates clients to communicate with the bank across all channels.

SWIFT adds that Intesa Sanpaolo actively supports SWIFTNet connectivity for corporates and has successfully worked with a variety of corporate treasuries and payment factories to exchange financial information through SWIFT. The bank will now also extend its range of services in the SWIFT for Corporates portfolio of products for multi-banked corporates and offer 3SKey to its corporate customers.

Stefano Favale, head of global transaction banking at Intesa Sanpaolo Group, commented: “SWIFT for corporates has considerable present and future potential and Intesa Sanpaolo is willing to make all the necessary investment to fully support clients who choose SWIFTNet to streamline and automate payment processes.”
