GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer Earns Drummond Recertification for AS2

Drummond Recertification AS2 1Q16 GoAnywhereMFTLinoma Software [now HelpSystems] is pleased to announce that GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer (MFT) has earned Drummond Recertification for Applicability Statement 2 or AS2 interoperability.

AS2 is a popular security standard that defines how to transfer digital data securely and reliably over the internet using encryption and digital certificates. Some advantages of using AS2 include end-to-end encryption of the actual data files instead of just the transfer channel, non-repudiation verification of sender and recipient authenticity through the use of digital signatures, and validation of original file integrity with successful transfer confirmation.

In order to become Drummond Certified™, companies must submit to rigorous product testing and meet strict requirements that verify compatibility between certified products for specific protocols such as AS2. The Drummond Group provides a controlled, vendor-neutral environment where routine tests are conducted to ensure that certified products meet strict testing protocols and are kept current.

Drummond Recertification for AS2-1Q16

For the first quarter AS2-1Q16 tests, 12 Global companies participated and 16 products were certified or recertified.   "Not all companies are willing to undergo the certification process, it's not easy," said Bob Luebbe, President and Chief Architect at Linoma Software [now HelpSystems]. "We count certification as part of our unwavering commitment to providing one of the highest quality and proven managed file transfer solutions on the market. Being Drummond Certified makes it easy for our customers to verify at-a-glance that our products have been real world tested and are guaranteed to fit into their existing AS2 infrastructure."

In addition to receiving Drummond Recertification for AS2, GoAnywhere MFT also successfully met requirements for AS2 optional tests including multiple attachments (MA), file name preservation (FN), file name preservation for multiple attachments (FN-MA), chunked transfer encoding (CTE), and secure hashing algorithm 2 (SHA-2).
