CData Arc Successfully Completes AS4 Interoperability Certification.

Certified Secure AS4/ebMS messaging made easy.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - On Dec. 8, 2016 CData Arc (, a leading provider of data integration and secure B2B communication solutions, announced today that CData Arc has successfully completed AS4-3Q16 Drummond Certified™ interoperability testing. Passing these rigorous, vendor-neutral tests ensures that CData Arc is interoperable with all Drummond Certified™ products for secure AS4 messaging.

AS4 is a state-of-the-art Internet messaging protocol that provides a standardized method for secure and document-agnostic exchange of B2B payloads, using Web Services. Similar to AS2, AS4 is designed to connect, deliver, validate, acknowledge and securely transmit data across the Internet.

"Interoperability is a crucial factor in the success of modern B2B integration," said Eric Madariaga, Marketing Director for CData Arc. "The adoption of AS4 for secure business messaging continues to expand as organizations realize the benefits of Web Services-based integration. Our commitment to AS4 interoperability certification reduces the friction involved in connecting systems, improving information sharing and ultimately reducing integration costs."

Drummond Group's AS4 interoperability testing is based on a proven test methodology developed to ensure that different products can work together to seamlessly exchange information, using Web Services, from any location, anywhere in the world. In addition to enabling interoperability for technologies such as cloud computing, AS4 is an emerging Internet messaging protocol that provides a standardized method for secure and document-agnostic exchange of B2B payloads. AS4 is being adopted globally, especially in Europe, as the messaging standard for secure message exchange.
