US Federal Government certification demonstrates PTC’s high standards for cloud security processes and procedures

NEEDHAM, Mass. – February 27, 2018 –– PTC (NASDAQ: PTC) today announced that several of its offerings, available via PTC Cloud, have received an esteemed FedRAMP certification, after a rigorous evaluation showed that PTC’s security practices and controls meet the US Federal Government’s high security standards for cloud services. FedRAMP’s authorization covers PTC’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)and Service Lifecycle Management (SLM) solutions and leading ThingWorx® IoT platform, hosted within the PTC Cloud FedRAMP environment. 

As more and more companies are adopting cloud-based hosting strategies, the complexity of cloud security becomes a growing concern. FedRAMP is an assessment and authorization process used by the US Federal Government to ensure proper security is in place when accessing cloud computing products and services. Federal agencies must ensure that the cloud computing systems they use are FedRAMP certified before they can use them in production.  PTC Cloud offerings have earned FedRAMP Moderate SaaS certification and also meet the DFARS security requirements and NIST SP 800-171 standards that defense contractors are required to meet. PTC is the only technology vendor that provides both PLM and SLM solution offerings as well as an IoT platform that are FedRAMP certified.

“Security is one of the biggest challenges for government organizations adopting a cloud strategy,” said Brent Baker, vice president, Worldwide Federal Aerospace and Defense, PTC. “PTC prioritizes security and understands the role that security plays across the entire enterprise. The FedRAMP certification process is extensive and we are proud that PTC Cloud has achieved this distinction.”

PTC Cloud provides a comprehensive suite of offerings that allow users to create and collaborate in a secure and reliable manner; sharing critical information related to product development, operation, manufacturing, service and support. With proactive monitoring and annual auditing, PTC Cloud SaaS provides the scalability, reliability and security infrastructure companies leveraging cloud-based business applications need to protect their data assets. PTC’s security posture is constantly evolving to meet the ever-changing threat landscape and utilizes a closed-loop process for continual improvement of security processes and procedures.
