Application Statement 2 (AS2) Module
Connect, deliver, validate, and acknowledge EDI data messages.
The Drummond-certified Applicability Statement 2 module gives EFT the ability to transfer data using the AS2 protocol. AS2 is widely used to transfer Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) messages, but may be used to transfer other types of data. AS2 specifies how to connect, deliver, validate, and acknowledge data, and creates an envelope for a message, which is then sent securely over the Internet.
EFT can initiate AS2 file transfers or accept AS2 requests from clients.

EFT as an AS2 Receiver:
Communicate securely – Communicate with major trading networks already in place, such as Walmart, Target, Lowe’s, Dollar General, and many others. The AS2 module uses industry-standard HTTPS, allowing you to communicate with multiple trading partners without the cost and learning curve associated with proprietary protocols or dedicated lines. The AS2 module supports transfer resume, data integrity checking, message signing, message disposition/receipt notification (MDN), and Non-Repudiation of Receipt (NRR).
Eliminates costs – Replacing value-added networks reduces or eliminates the high costs associated with dedicated lines. The AS2 module’s guarantee of transmissions both of the data itself and the fact that it was sent at a specific time by a specific entity provides a secure, reliable method for transmitting EDI, XML or other documents.
