CData Arc Successfully Completes AS2-3Q16 Drummond Certified Interoperability.

AS2 certified products continue delivering a wide selection of compliant, interoperable software applications

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - On Dec. 7, 2016 CData Arc (, a leading provider of data integration and secure B2B communication solutions, announced today that CData Arc has successfully completed AS2-3Q16 Drummond Certified™ interoperability testing. Passing these rigorous, vendor-neutral tests ensures that CData Arc is interoperable with all Drummond Certified™ products for secure AS2 messaging.

In addition to interoperability testing, Drummond also validated the AS2 Connector for optional advanced AS2 features. These tests evaluate additional capabilities beyond basic AS2 communications, including features like AS2 Restart for Very Large Messages (VLM), AS2 Reliability, Secure Hashing (SHA-2), Chunked Encoding and Multiple Attachments.

"AS2 certification for interoperability remains a critical part of the successful adoption of AS2. This is evidenced by the twice per year AS2 test event running continuously since the year 2000," said Aaron Gomez, Drummond Group's director of B2B testing. "Additionally, the move to SHA-2 is in demand, and interoperability testing around this and updated versions of products before introducing them to the marketplace becomes very important. These companies dedicated several months of automated testing resolving 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."
