I am reaching to see whether OCR processing of PDF documents using Adobe PDF services SDK is done remotely on Adobe's infrastructure with PDF documents RESTfully posted to an endpoint? If yes, is there a way to have that processing done on my corporate servers where the Application runs and with all the required artificats installed? I am trying to avoid sharing sensitive pdf documents in a remtoe fashion.
No, it cannot be done locally in your environment. We talk a bit about this in the FAQ. Here's the relevant part:
Quick follow up question - Is your PDF Cloud processing server FedRAMP certified?
Thank you for the prompt response.
Is there a possibility of Adobe partnering with the organization I work for to procure this security certification? Perhaps my Org's security/risk team can partner with Adobe to define the necessary requirments for you achieve FedRAMP certification.
I've got no clue on that - forwarding it up the chain.
Adobe PDF Services API is not currently FedRAMP-certified. There are other Adobe services that have FedRAMP status (https://marketplace.fedramp.gov/#!/products?sort=productName&productNameSearch=adobe). Currently, the Adobe PDF Services that are FedRAMP-Tailored are ones that are included as part of Acrobat (as in used through Acrobat in the web browser, mobile apps, etc). This does not currently include Adobe PDF Services API.
We are always continuing to improve the service, but we do not have any additional information or timelines we can share at the moment.
