How do they compare?
AS2 is HTTPS in batch mode. FTPS is secure socket layer. Both have triple DES encryption, required ports and more. So why do customers prefer AS2?
The key is AS2’s defined and standardized error reporting and message receipts, no embarrassments for lost orders or invoices. But why should you pay for an AS2 utility to trade documents with a set of Trading Partners when right now you only pay once for FTP software?
There are now many AS2 software providers who charge a flat fee. As long as they are Drummond Group certified, you can proceed with confidence at a lower cost with all the benefits.
