Cleo, a leading provider of enterprise data integration solutions, announced today that it has successfully completed Drummond Group’s AS2 interoperability testing in the first quarter of 2015.
This round of testing certifies versions 5.2 of Cleo’s secure data integration product family, including Cleo Harmony™, Cleo VLTrader®, and Cleo LexiCom® products. Out of the 15 products from 11 global software companies that were Drummond Certified™ in this test event, Cleo solutions 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).
“The depth of Cleo’s support of AS2, one of the most mandated and most popular communication protocols on the market, puts the company well ahead of the data integration curve,” said Mr Joe Dupree, Vice President of Marketing at Cleo. “Cleo’s continued commitment to the optional protocol testing that other vendors skip manifests as a much more advanced product suite that reliably, securely, and efficiently connects your data ecosystem.”
“Cleo serves thousands of worldwide customers with the world’s best implementation of AS2 to securely move hundreds of billions of dollars of goods every day,” said Mr Mahesh Rajasekharan, Ph.D., CEO of Cleo. “As companies consolidate and retire older and aging infrastructure, and take on new B2B gateway requirements, they ‘ll turn to Cleo – a trusted brand that has facilitated the secure, easy, and reliable exchange of critical business information for decades – to meet their current and future needs.”
“The importance of adopting technical standards continues to be highlighted with this recent test event,” said Mr Rik Drummond, CEO of Drummond Group. “Furthermore, the group as a whole had an opportunity to address the recently discovered vulnerability in SSLv3 (e.g. POODLE). As participants made changes to allow disabling or removing SSLv3 from their products, it became critical to ensure all products participating in this AS2 Interop remained interoperable. By testing and certifying their respective products in a neutral setting, these companies have created more secure products for their partners and customers.”
