Autodesk Cloud Offerings Achieve Milestone in FedRAMP Compliance Process

SAN FRANCISCO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 21, 2015Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK) today announced that it has initiated the U.S. federal government compliance process for cloud products and services known as the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP).

FedRAMP compliance will allow Autodesk to better serve government agencies that require the certification to use cloud offerings such as Autodesk A360 and Autodesk BIM 360 Glue to drive innovation, agility and efficiencies. Autodesk achieved FedRAMP “in process” status by partnering with the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and will continue to work toward FedRAMP security requirements through USACE. Autodesk has worked closely with the federal agency for the last decade, helping to ensure that industry standards, such as Building Information Modeling (BIM), are easily and effectively used throughout the Corps’ engineering programs.

“Federal agencies and system integrators have been requesting access to Autodesk cloud products for some time now as they need the agility and performance that cloud-based design technologies deliver,” said Amar Hanspal, Autodesk Senior Vice President, Information Modeling & Platform Group. “The ‘in process’ ranking brings us one step closer to fulfilling that need.”

“Our employees need every tool at their disposal to provide engineering solutions for our nation’s toughest challenges,” said Jason Fairchild, the BIM community of practice leader at the United States Army Corps of Engineers, Headquarters. “By following the FedRAMP compliance procedures, we’re ensuring our people will have access to first-class cloud design and engineering tools once we achieve FedRAMP compliance.”

Commitment to Government Requirements

FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. This approach uses a “do once, use many times” framework that saves cost, time and staff required to conduct redundant agency security assessments. Autodesk has been working with U.S. federal agencies for more than 25 years, and the company’s commitment to work toward FedRAMP compliance serves to strengthen that relationship.
