USE CASE

SOLIDWORKS + Cuick Trac

SOLIDWORKS at a glance:

THE COMPANY:

SOLIDWORKS’ 3D CAD software helps engineers improve the way they design and develop complex machined and sheet metal parts.

THE CHALLENGE:

Working with the government and the DoD requires security at the application level with specific integrations to manage complex files and assets. 

THE SOLUTION:

The SOLIDWORKS software is accessed via a dedicated, virtual enclave, allowing engineers to update designs and send emails without compromising security.

Designing on the Fly

In the fast-paced world of design and engineering, the ability to access powerful software like SOLIDWORKS remotely is a game-changer.

Traditionally, SOLIDWORKS required high-performance workstations to handle its resource-intensive tasks. However, with the rise of remote work and the need for enhanced cybersecurity, accessing SOLIDWORKS on the go has become a necessity.

Now, engineers working on a defense project can securely log in to CuickTrac’s CUI enclave via the web-based portal and access their SOLIDWORKS environment without compromising security or performance.

SOLIDWORKS - Seamlessly Integrated

Once logged in, engineers can create new designs and open existing projects. When a design needs to be emailed to the appropriate parties, Cuick Trac’s secure email, which is built in but completely separate from the user’s commercial email, keeps the entire workflow contained within the boundary of Cuick Trac’s infrastructure.

Step 3. From the customer’s secure file portal, users can transfer files and save them securely to their Cuick Trac secure storage drive. From there, users can structure their files however they need to.

Step 4. User opens SOLIDWORKS from within their Cuick Trac environment. From there, users can search for, open, work on and save necessary files within Cuick Trac.

Step 5. Once a user has saved their file, they can easily send secure emails to external or internal parties. Users can also upload files to their customers’ secure web portals.

Step 6. Once a Cuick Trac user securely emails their file(s) to an external party, if allowed by the Cuick Trac user, the external party can access and download the files to their environment via a secure web reader, without having to be a Cuick Trac user themselves.
