- Builds on native security of IaaS vendors
- Follows Cloud Security Alliance (CSA)-recommended controls
- Ongoing penetration testing keeps pace with changing security landscape
Since the introduction of cloud computing, security has been one of the main concerns for any company contemplating a move to the public cloud. When the cloud was in its infancy, many companies opted to manage compute constraints internally, even if this meant barriers to engineering productivity. Now, as the public cloud has matured, most companies are hosting important personal and company data in Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) business applications. Engineers are coming to realize that using EDA tools in the cloud just makes sense.
Just as companies struggle to grow their compute environment at the rate their engineering teams demand, it is difficult to keep up with the increasing number of more and more sophisticated security threats. The resources and expertise needed to keep in step with the constantly changing best practices are daunting. While companies often grow this expertise in-house with a small team and limited resources, the public cloud offers an opportunity to leverage economies of scale not only for compute power, but also security. Public cloud vendors have spent years dedicating their resources to securing—and proving the security of—cloud computing. They have developed some of the most advanced security measures available—from datacenter physical security practices rivaling military installations to sophisticated cyber security teams dedicated to proactively fighting the newest security threat.
The Cadence® Cloud portfolio expands upon the native security of public cloud vendors with additional layers of third-party security applications, industry best practices, and penetration testing. The Cadence Cloud-Hosted Design Solution follows the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA)-recommended controls and routinely conducts independent penetration testing to proactively comply with changes in the security landscape. The Cloud-Hosted Design Solution also leverages the world-class native public cloud services that have passed rigorous security certifications used around the world, including FIPS 140-2 Level 2; ISO 27001, 27012, 27018; Department of Defense Security Requirements; and MLPS Level 3 and MTCS. By layering native public cloud security, additional applications, industry best practices, and penetration testing techniques, the Cloud-Hosted Design Solution provides security above many traditional datacenters.
Cadence has passed our rigorous cloud security audits and is authorized to engage with mutual customers on the Cadence Cloud using TSMC process models and rule decks.

The Cadence approach to the cloud addresses historical industry issues, opening the door for customers to adopt the cloud and enter the next generation of chip design development.
Richard Wawrzyniak, principal analyst for ASIC & SoC at Semico Research Corp.
Our Cadence and AWS deployment is allowing us to deliver our platform-on-chip and subsystems for networking, storage and security applications faster so that we maintain not only our own competitive advantage but also that of AWS.
Nafea Bshara, vice president, distinguished engineer, and co-founder Annapurna Labs
We started using Cadence HDS on-premise with great success a few years ago because we needed full infrastructure and CAD and IT staff support. Now as our company has grown, we have decided to make the move to the Cadence Cloud-Hosted Design Solution deployed on Microsoft Azure in order to improve scalability.
Ronnie Huang, CTO and co-founder, CNEX Labs, Inc
Through use of the Cadence Cloud-Hosted Design Solution deployed on AWS, we have successfully modernized our IT infrastructure for silicon design. The cloud-based approach enhanced collaboration of our world-class team, and Cadence’s support has allowed a seamless move to this new service delivery model.
