BIM 360 Security - Everything you need to know and More!

As the construction industry looks to reduce delivery risk by going digital, purpose built Cloud Platforms are helping solve traditional and isolated process inefficiencies as well as help better manage, control and report on project teams collaboration, delivery performance, analyse data, track tasks and more, it is important to understand the security and resilience supporting any given offering.

Here you'll find everything you need to get under the security-hood of BIM 360 to answer questions like:

  • How secure is my data? [SSAE-16 AT 101 SOC 2 attestation and ISO 27001, ISO 27017 and ISO 27018 certifications to validate the security posture].
  • Where is my data located? [AWS - Amazon Web Services]. Is my data Encrypted? [256-bit advanced encryption (AES-256) transmitted using TLS].
  • Do I still own my data? [Active customers will retain ownership rights].
  • What is the availability (uptime) target of the service?  [BIM 360 service targets availability of over 99.5%. In layman's terms this is equates roughly to around 9 hours of potential downtime a year (not all at once I should add) based on a 40 Hour week].

Below contain 8 assets that will help answer these questions:
