  6. 6. Alliance Lifeline – Key features BNL forum March 2014 - Alliance Lifeline & Sanctions screening 6 Cost-effective ‘cold standby’ connection to SWIFT (based on Alliance Lite2) Secure Internet connection from any location; option to connect over SWIFT VPN Global 24/7/365 connection activation on request – GUI always available Easy-to-use browser-based screens; light footprint Deployed from SWIFT Operating Centre for maximum availability and resilience Basic message reconciliation – copy of messages exchanged over Lifeline during outage, report of last sent messages before outage available upon request
  7. 7. Alliance Lifeline could be right for you if … • Inability to exchange SWIFT messages for a long period of time could have severe financial or reputational consequences for your business • Inability to send SWIFT messages at the wrong moment (e.g. just before a cut-off) could have severe consequences • It takes a time to start up your normal disaster site, and you need to increase your protection against short outages • You operate multiple BICs for remote locations (head office) and you want additional protection in case the connection between the remote location and the head-office is down • You need an alternative connection in order to comply with regulatory requirements • You like the flexibility of having a subscription-based emergency connection without the need for additional upfront investment BNL forum March 2014 - Alliance Lifeline & Sanctions screening 7
  8. 8. Two Lifeline flavours • Standard – FIN only (& Browse & RMA) – No support for InterAct or FileAct – Dormant, customer must request activation to SWIFT to login/select FIN LT  max. 1.5 hours to activate • This also activates the customer’s ability to initiate a Browse session, and activates his ability to send & receive RMA messages over Lifeline • Premium – Support for all services (FIN, Browse, RMA, InterAct, FileAct) – Always ready to send  zero wait time to activate sending – FIN : dedicated LT always logged in & selected for ‘input’ (for sending) – InterAct/FileAct : emission profiles always enabled for sending – Browse : customer operator can always use Lite2 GUI to open Browse session – Dormant reception, customer must request activation of reception to SWIFT  max. 1.5 hour to activate reception – Multiple activation scenarios can be pre-defined BNL forum March 2014 - Alliance Lifeline & Sanctions screening 8
  9. 9. Alliance Lifeline – Free use of GUI • The Alliance Lifeline user interface (Lite2 browser-based screens) is always available, no need to request activation, no daily usage fee applies to use the GUI (for Standard and Premium) • Which means the following activities are always possible, and are not charged : – Enter templates – Import/export RMA records – Enter messages • Note: if messages remain in an uncompleted state (e.g. draft, ready-to-send …) for more than 14 days, they will be automatically aborted (completed) – Upload or download files (over AutoClient or over the browser) – Message searching & printing BNL forum March 2014 - Alliance Lifeline & Sanctions screening 9
