GoAnywhere MFT Earns Drummond Recertification for AS2

GoAnywhere MFT Drummond CertifiedLinoma Software [now HelpSystems] is pleased to announce that GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer (MFT) has again earned Drummond Recertification for Applicability Statement 2 (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 the AS2 include end-to-end encryption, non-repudiation verification of senders, recipient authenticity through the use of digital signatures, and validation of original file integrity with successful transfer confirmation.

In order to become Drummond CertifiedTM, companies must submit to rigorous product testing and meet strict requirements to verify compatibility between certified products. 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 AS2-3Q16

For the third quarter AS2-3Q16 tests, 13 Global companies participated and 18 products were certified or recertified. “Not all companies are willing to undergo the certification process, since 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 manage file transfer solutions on the market. Being Drummond certified makes it easy for our customers to verify at-a-glance that our MFT solution has been real world tested and is guaranteed to work with their AS2 partners.”

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), chucked transfer encoding (CTE), and secure hashing algorithm 2 (SHA-2).
