ROCKFORD, Illinois – August 27, 2019 – Drummond Group recently announced that Cleo, a leading provider of ecosystem integration solutions, has successfully completed its Applicability Statement 2 (AS2) certification during the second quarter (2Q) test event.  This event marked the latest round of Drummond’s AS2 interoperability certification tests, which are held 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.

“We commend Cleo for their commitment and recognition of AS2 interoperability testing’s global significance,” said Aaron Gomez, Drummond’s Supply Chain Business Practice Leader. “As one of our premier test offerings since 2000, the AS2-2Q19 Interoperability test event marks this standard’s 36th successful round conducted by Drummond. AS2 remains a top protocol designed to provide secure and reliable exchange of highly-sensitive business documents and transactions for many verticals, including retail (for EDI Interchange) and pharmaceutical supply chains.”

Retailers, consumer product goods, hard-lines, insurance, financial services, petroleum industry, and government agencies have adopted AS2 to safeguard critical business information that represents billions of dollars each year.
