Amazon Transfer Family now allows you to send Applicability Statement 2 (AS2) messages using HTTPS. AS2 offers security features like encryption and non-repudiation by default. With the ability to send AS2 messages over HTTPS, you can now benefit from an additional layer of in-transit encryption for your most sensitive EDI payloads and further compatibility with trading partners that require SSL/TLS communications.

Customers across verticals such as healthcare and life sciences, retail, financial services, and insurance that rely on AS2 for exchanging business-critical data use Amazon Transfer Family’s highly available, scalable, and globally available AS2 endpoints to more cost effectively and securely exchange transactional data with their trading partners. Exchanged data is natively accessible in Amazon Web Services Cloud for processing, analysis, and machine learning, as well as for integrations with business applications running on Amazon Web Services Cloud.

The ability to send AS2 messages over HTTPS is available in all regions where Amazon Transfer Family is available, including the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.
