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.

"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.
