Autodesk is able to monitor and control the use of hundreds of AWS accounts from a single pane of glass. The California-based company is a leading provider of 3D design software for industrial and consumer use, and uses AWS for a wide range of production workloads. It streamlined access to hundreds of internal AWS accounts for its engineering teams by using Amazon Identity and Access Management (Amazon IAM) and SAML 2.0 federation to link to the company’s on-premises Active Directory service. This hybrid approach gives Autodesk users an easy, single logon for accessing the AWS cloud while providing the company with greater security and financial controls over its cloud resources.
