GoAnywhere MFT meets highest level of AS2 interoperability testing with Drummond Recertification

Linoma Software [now HelpSystems], today announced that GoAnywhere® Managed File Transfer (MFT) has been Drummond Certified™ for the highest level of AS2 interoperability in the AS2-1Q17 test event.

AS2 or Applicability Statement 2 is a widely used standard for secure and reliable file transfer of EDI and other business data between organizations and their trading partners. Popular among B2B e-commerce and retail organizations, AS2 is known for its relatively low cost, increased security, and efficiency. Consecutively Drummond Certified since 2015, GoAnywhere MFT remains committed to offering guaranteed AS2 compatibility for customers and joins the ranks of 12 other software products worldwide with this most recent recertification. “We have consistently met the stringent requirements for AS2 Certification for over 2 years,” said Bob Luebbe, President and Chief Architect at Linoma Software. “The process is not easy but we believe it is well worth the effort to ensure our AS2 customers know without a doubt that our product will work in their environment. Guaranteed.”

GoAnywhere Drummond Recertification for AS2-1Q17

To qualify for Drummond Certification, software products must meet several requirements and submit to strict testing designed to verify compatibility between other certified products. “Vendors also work together to test RFC 4130 other optional functional areas such as: SHA-2, Reliability/Restart, Filename Preservation, Chunked-Transfer-Encoding and Multiple-Attachments. These companies dedicate months of automated testing to resolve issues in a real-world test setting, supported by Drummond Group’s InSitu™ Test System, and earning AS2 Drummond Certification as a group. Drummond AS2 certified products continue to provide the highest level of interoperability providing small, medium and large global businesses a wide selection of offerings,” said Aaron Gomez, Drummond Group’s Director of B2B testing.

In this test series, GoAnywhere MFT not only received Drummond Certification for AS2, but also met additional requirements for several 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).
