Quality is determined by customers, partners, and users like you. We know quality means confidence, so you can rest assured that our products and standards have passed performance and quality assurance tests required for certification, allowing you to leverage the latest advancements in security and efficiency.
Cleo LexiCom and Cleo VLTrader products have been Drummond certified for all interoperability tests since 2002, including all optional tests such as those for multiple file support, check-point restart for large files, and certificate exchange messaging, just to name a few. Certified for Cleo AS2, AS3, and ebMS (ebXML Messaging Service) standards, which enable secure and reliable B2B internet data interchange, Cleo successfully achieved eBusinessReady certification for AS3 EDI/XML interoperability in 2005 as a joint partnership between GS1 US (formerly the Uniform Code Council, Inc.) and Drummond Group. We continue to perform at an exceptional level as interoperability testing advances and remains true to the industry's current standards for secure internet communications.
The Drummond certification program provides neutral third party testing of software within a simulated, controlled real-world secure file transfer environment. Current test results are available at the Drummond Group's website.
Cleo plays an instrumental part in industry needs for successfully exchanging large payloads via AS2 software. With the adoption and implementation of AS2 Restart through Drummond Group, AS2 systems will easily exchange very large payloads of 500MB or larger over AS2 seamlessly by eliminating the need to retry an entire AS2 message when connections fail.
"The addition of a certified, interoperable restart feature to AS2 allows this hugely successful protocol to become even more important and useful to the base of AS2 customers. Restart, in addition to previously added AS2 features like multiple file support, file name preservation, and certificate exchange, allows Cleo to provide its tens of thousands of customers with even more value. Restart will allow AS2 to be used as the single protocol for all files in industries such as multi-media, healthcare, and engineering." Todd Enneking, Cleo Vice President of Business Development
