Cleo Completes Drummond Group 4Q 2019 AS2 and ebMS Certifications

ROCKFORD, Illinois – January 23, 2020 – Drummond Group recently announced that Cleo, the global leader in ecosystem integration solutions, has successfully completed its Applicability Statement 2 (AS2) certification and ebMS certification during fourth quarter (4Q) 2019 test events. These events mark the latest round of Drummond’s interoperability certification tests.   

AS2 continues to be one of the most widely adopted messaging standards in the world. Companies in many critical supply chain-driven industries, such as manufacturing, wholesale, logistics, retail and others, have adopted AS2 to safeguard critical business information that represents billions of dollars each year. In addition to providing a high level of data security for companies worldwide, AS2-based software is instrumental in addressing non-repudiation message management and interoperability tools essential for successful B2B integration communication protocols. 

Likewise, ebXML Messaging (ebMS), also known as TRP (Transport Routing & Packaging), focuses on the means for transmitting a document (payload) from one party to another, possibly through intermediaries. This protocol standardizes the way B2B transactions are transmitted.  Multiple global industries rely on these effective ebMS standard-based applications to save time and money when exchanging enormous amounts of data over the internet in a secure and reliable method.

“The demand for highly secure and interoperable messaging protocols is greater than ever and clearly Cleo recognizes the importance of continuously proving their systems’ ability to interoperate,” said Aaron Gomez, Drummond’s Supply Chain Business Unit Leader.  “We commend Cleo for their commitment and recognition of Drummond Group interoperability testing’s rigorous high standards and global significance.” 

The 4Q 2019 certification tests demonstrate that integration software products comprising Cleo Integration Cloud: Private Cloud Edition have again been Drummond Certified™.  Cleo has completed every Drummond AS2 test since 2002, and Cleo was one of only five companies certified in Drummond’s 4Q-19 ebXML/ebMS testing process.
