CAD & Security: how Onshape ensures security and regulatory compliance
Using cloud-based CAD software offers many benefits, including flexibility, scalability, and access from anywhere on any device. But what worries designers the most is data security. However, this fear has become increasingly unfounded thanks to the huge investments that manufacturers have made in the security of their systems.
Encryption and compliance
One of the main benefits of security in cloud-based CAD software is access control. With Saas (as-a-service) CAD software like Onshape, users can only access information they are authorized to, which limits the risk of unauthorized access or data theft. Additionally, cloud-based CAD software vendors have increasingly implemented advanced security measures to protect user data, including data encryption in transit and at rest, regular data backup, and active system security monitoring.
Another benefit of this is compliance with privacy and data security regulations. Manufacturers of these software must comply with applicable regulations, including the GDPR in Europe and the CCPA in California. This means that users can be confident that their CAD software complies with current safety regulations.
Business continuity is another security benefit of these software as a service. With data stored on remote servers, businesses can continue working without significant disruption in the event of a natural disaster or service outage. Additionally, cloud-based CAD software like Onshape offers advanced collaboration features that enable teams to work together securely and effectively.
With all these benefits, it’s no wonder Onshape is a safe choice for the design needs of professionals.
