“2022 is a promising year with many triumphs to come, challenges to overcome, and milestones to come to”




Word from the CEO

I would like to take the opportunity to greet our Muslim friends and wish them a blessed month of Ramadan and wish our Christian friends a Happy Easter. It warms our hearts to know that people are finally able to get together on holidays like before, after almost two years of social distancing and lockdowns.

With the pandemic almost coming to an end, we are now able to meet more frequently with our clients in person, organize onsite events, attend financial community conferences; a step that has been long waited for.

We are currently preparing for visits and roadshows in a number of countries in the region, which allows us to communicate with our customers more closely and stay updated with their emerging needs and challenges, especially after the pandemic, which has redefined the realm of business and introduced new needs.

Moreover, we give high priority for security and compliance as we are aware of the weight of those matters and the repercussions of their lacking. In order to provide the best to our clients, we have joined our efforts with Secure Business Solutions (SBS), our new partner, in order to cater for security needs at a higher level and offer a more dedicated division for security projects.

As to our inhouse products, we are receiving great interest in AEG MT-ISO Converter and AEG Payment Control and Monitoring applications; we’ve started implementation and testing at a number of banks in the region. Further, we are in the course of enhancing existing applications and developing new ones addressing payment security, tracking, monitoring, reporting, etc.

We can confidently say that 2022 is a promising year with many triumphs to come, challenges to overcome, and milestones to come to.

Payment Control and Monitoring

CSCF v2022 promotes control 2.9 (Transaction Business Controls) to mandatory. It supports and aligns with other regulations such as CPMI’s strategy which equally aims at reducing the risk of payment fraud related to endpoint security.

AEG introduces an application that answers the banks’ need for transaction control and monitoring. AEG Payment Control and Monitoring Application is designed to monitor intelligently the transactional activities at the bank internal environments. This solution helps identifying and blocking high risk transactions in case any fraudulent activity is detected.

AEG Payment Control and Monitoring Application is a comprehensive solution that allows the bank to detect possible fraud actions, to monitor and control transactions, to generate payment reports and to assure network to SWIFT system reconciliation.

SWIFT Message Tracking and Monitoring

AEG is currently in the course of developing a new tracking and monitoring application that allows instantaneous outlook over message status.

The need to have real-time visibility over the SWIFT messages status and their location in the queues, the time spent in each queue and who was working on them, AEG is developing a new application that achieves message tracking and monitoring with a smart notification system in order to control and evaluate the performance of the users and process delayed messages. The application allows the user to view all message instances in real time from a specifically configured queue via a suitable friendly web user-interface. Further, the application monitors the observed SWIFT queues for any delayed messages that exceed the predefined allowed time, and collects information about the delayed messages before generating an email notification alert. This, in turn, allows the user to follow up more efficiently with the SWIFT and Compliance departments at the bank to resolve issues and facilitate faster processing.
