AS2 (Applicability Statement 2) Transfers

As a Drummond Certified™ solution, GoAnywhere MFT has the features you need to simplify your AS2 transfers with your trading partners. The AS2 standard (Applicability Statement 2) is one of the most popular methods for transporting critical data securely and reliably over the internet. Advantages of AS2 include end-to-end encryption, strong authentication of senders and recipients through the use of digital signatures, and validation of file integrity with successful transfer confirmation.

GoAnywhere MFT provides both AS2 client and server capabilities in a simple, secure and scalable solution that works on nearly every platform including Windows, Linux, UNIX, VMware and IBM i.

AS2 Client & Server

The AS2 Client in GoAnywhere MFT can automatically send AS2 messages on a scheduled basis. Multiple files can be sent with each AS2 message. If a connection breaks, GoAnywhere can automatically reconnect to the server and retransmit the AS2 message. Both synchronous and asynchronous receipts can be automatically logged in GoAnywhere to ensure AS2 messages were successfully processed by the trading partners.

The AS2 Server in GoAnywhere MFT allows you to receive AS2 messages from your trading partners easily. Trading partners can be authenticated using a combination of user credentials and X.509 certificates. When an AS2 message is received, you can have a trigger automatically process the received files. For instance, GoAnywhere could move the AS2 documents to another area on the network or call an application to process these files.
