The defense and aerospace market beckons many product companies seeking to diversify, but also demands quality, enhanced efficiencies, technological innovation, and regulatory compliance. Most companies in this market are subject to export controls and cybersecurity regulations, requiring compliance in technical data handling and access. Regulations include the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), Export Administration Regulations (EAR), and Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). Their goal is to protect U.S. national security and foreign policy interests.

To mitigate compliance risks and avoid costly legal penalties, companies must ensure the secure access and handling of product information throughout the entire lifecycle. In the past, some manufacturers expressed uncertainty as to whether cloud solutions could address these needs and truly meet regulatory requirements. However, recent initiatives like the Federal Cloud Computing Strategy – Cloud Smart and the United States Department of Defense Digital Engineering Instruction (DoDI 5000.97) are driving organizations to embrace a digital transformation and rethink cloud technology.

Now, leading companies find that a secure cloud-native product lifecycle management (PLM) solution can fully support ITAR, EAR, and CMMC compliance and adds a wide array of other tangible benefits for their businesses.

Arena PLM for AWS GovCloud is the secure product development solution for regulated companies requiring a proven cloud platform designed for their business processes.
