ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - December 2, 2008) - nuBridges, the secure eBusiness authority, announced today that its nuBridges Exchange™ Enterprise 2.5, nuBridges Exchange™ C.S. (Commerce Suite) 3.4 and nuBridges Exchange i™ 3.2 software solutions for managed file transfer and B2B integration have completed the AS2-2Q08 Interoperability certification and are now Drummond Certified®.

The nuBridges products are three of 18 newly certified AS2 products from thirteen software companies to complete the Drummond Certified AS2-2Q08 Interoperability test developed by Drummond Group, Inc. (DGI), the global leader of interoperability software testing and certification. AS2 enables users to securely and reliably connect, deliver data and reply over Simple Mail Transport Protocol (SMTP) or email and is often used by companies to exchange critical business information between trusted trading partners.

"nuBridges Exchange gives customers secure, multi-protocol file transfer, including the added assurance of Drummond-certified interoperability for AS2," said Kim Addington, Chief Marketing Officer for nuBridges. "We're firm supporters of the work the Drummond Group does to provide a thorough testing environment to ensure that business-critical information can be reliably transmitted among trading partners."

During the test, the participating software vendors participated in a full matrix test event whereby all participants exchanged messages with all the participants to ensure interoperability.

"Interoperability certification is a critical link in the successful and dependable exchange of business to business transactions and continuous testing is a big part of that dependability," said Rik Drummond, CEO, Drummond Group Inc. "We're pleased that nuBridges continues to participate in interoperability testing through the years, providing their e-commerce customers with assurances that nuBridges' B2B products will work well with their trading partners' data exchange solutions."

AS2 is one of the most widely recognized messaging standards for B2B e-commerce with thousands of implementations around the globe. It enables businesses to easily establish trading partner relationships to exchange business data (like EDI, XML, Documents, PDFs, Text Files, etc.) securely and reliably, thereby delivering cost savings and providing flexibility and control for backend to backend data integration.
