Applicability Statement 2 (AS2) is one of several protocol standards built into the foundation of E2net. By removing barriers to collaboration and allowing for the exchange of information in a simple, secure and reliable manner, E2net enables complete visibility and the rapid onboarding of trading partners worldwide. e2open is committed to supporting the entire spectrum of connectivity options for customers and their partners and minimizing the friction around data exchange. E2net is Drummond-certified for AS2.
AS2 continues to be one of the most widely adopted messaging standards in the world. The consumer goods, high-tech, industrial manufacturing and petroleum industries, as well as government agencies, have adopted AS2 to safeguard critical business information representing billions of dollars each year. AS2 enables business-to-business (B2B) gateways to connect, deliver and reply using all forms of data communication—including electronic data interchange (EDI) and Extensible Markup Language (XML)—securely and reliably, thus delivering cost savings and providing flexibility and control with respect to how the data is used. Protocols like AS2 are highly instrumental for facilitating communication between enterprises and networks.
As part of e2open’s commitment to being at the forefront of B2B connectivity, the company participates annually in the Drummond Group’s vendor‐neutral AS2 test events. E2net supports multiple additional AS2 profiles, including SHA2 support, AS2 Reliability and AS2 Restart to help ensure that large files can be streamed reliably and securely. These profiles are verified for interoperability during the test events.
