EastNets™ and SIDE teamed up to offer the best AML filtering solutions in a service based infrastructure. SIDE SafeWatch will be installed centrally and made available by EastNets™ to all its customers through their SWIFT Service Bureau infrastructure.

It provides services to over 100 banks throughout the Middle East, North Africa, Balkans and Pakistan. The services range from connectivity to the SWIFT Network, to a complete outsourcing of card management application and e-billing systems.

“The success of SIDE SafeWatch increases continuously: more than 200 customers in over 70 countries use SIDE SafeWatch to filter millions of transactions every day. This new implementation of SIDE SafeWatch for Service Bureau offers the best AML detection system at an affordable price to all customers, and in a very modular way“, says Luc Delbrassine, SIDE Group CEO.
