LOVES PARK, IL — Cleo, a leading provider of data integration solutions, has successfully completed third quarter 2013 Drummond Group AS2 re-certification for its Cleo Harmony™, Cleo VLTrader™, and Cleo LexiCom®, products.
Out of the 21 products from 14 global software companies that were Drummond Certified™ in the Drummond Group AS2‐3Q13 automated interoperability test event, Cleo products continue to be the only products to pass all optional certification tests for AS2.
Optional tests include multiple attachments(MA), certificate exchange messaging (CEM), file name preservation (FN), file name preservation for multiple attachments (FN-MA), file name preservation with MDN notification (FN-MDN), chunked transfer encoding (CTE), reliability, restart, and secure hashing algorithm 2 (SHA-2).
“These optional tests set Cleo apart and have an important impact on customer usage and productivity. They ensure better interoperability between software from different communication vendors, improved reliability, better security, more efficient handling of Big Data, easier community management, improved message tracking, and extended traceability,” said Joe Dupree, Vice President of Marketing at Cleo.
“The depth of feature richness within our support of marketing leading protocols like AS2 is another area that sets Cleo apart from other data integration and connectivity providers,” said Joe Dupree, Vice President of Marketing at Cleo. “Cleo’s support of optional protocol features that many other vendors leave out translates into a much more capable product that more reliably, securely, and efficiently connects your data eco-system.”
AS2 is one of the most popular protocols among Cleo’s customers today. Cleo solutions include a library of over 800 preconfigured connections to the world’s largest trading communities, helping customers on-board new trading partners three times faster than other solutions available on the market.
“Year after year, test after test, Cleo has continued to perform at an exceptional level as AS2 testing has advanced. Our repeated certification demonstrates the ongoing commitment we have to our customers using AS2 for secure communication,” said Andy Evett, Principal Engineer at Cleo.
“Certified software applications draw attention to the importance of interoperability needed to support the world’s supply chain in a variety of industries,” says Rik Drummond, CEO of Drummond Group. “So, we commend these organizations for their united efforts to meet mutual goals of driving global interoperability with the continuous adoption of technical standards such as AS2. Testing the newest product versions and new products between competing organizations ultimately delivers success to the marketplace by offering a wide choice of interoperable products at different price points from around the world.”
