Dubai, February 22, 2011
EastNets, a leading global provider of compliance and payments solutions, has won the 2011 Kinetic Process Innovation Award for excellence in the banking technology category.
Now in its 14th year, the awards programme recognizes excellence in information technology and this year is sponsored by High Tech Views, an online publication that spotlights technology innovation.
EastNets was selected by a panel of experts based on its en.SafeWatch Filtering solution for OFAC, PEP and SWIFT message screening, and en.Reporting solution for FIN/XML message monitoring being used at Bermuda Commercial Bank.
The business benefits included the solutions’ matching engine enabling rapid identification of anti-money laundering risks while limiting false positives, and direct SWIFT message screening and reporting, a statement said.
“The Kinetic Process Innovation Award not only recognizes outstanding technology and the creative implementation of that technology, but also acknowledges EastNets extensive awareness of critical compliance and transactional risks involved in banking today,” said Drew Barrows, deputy editor of High Tech Views.
"EastNets clearly takes an approach that focuses on the technical challenges at hand and demonstrates its strong commitment to protect the integrity and safety of the financial systems,” he added.
“The Kinetic Process Innovation Award is an excellent recognition that honors superior applications for their business effectiveness,” said Hazem Mulhim, CEO of EastNets.
“We are delighted to be receiving this award based on the benefits and value Bermuda Commercial Bank has derived from our anti-money laundering and SWIFT reporting solutions.”
EastNets en.SafeWatch Filtering solution is used today by over 400 financial institutions in 80 countries providing robust sanctions screening to ensure compliance with OFAC regulations, mitigate financial crime and meet anti-terrorist financing guidelines, the statement said.
En.SafeWatch Filtering offers real-time blocking, provides NACHA IAT screening capabilities, supports all sanctions lists, and provides direct SWIFT message screening. Its highly sophisticated OFAC screening and filtering engine ensures rapid identification of potential risks while limiting false positives, thereby saving substantial time and money, it added.
