In the Pharmaceutical industry, protecting data is not just about confidentiality. Important though that is, security and protection in the world of pharmaceuticals needs to cover:
Global Data Sentinel understands the value of that data, and that protection needs to be applied not just 24x7x365, but also to cover a range of situations, possibilities and working practices, such as:
With a Global Data Sentinel node sitting on a pharmaceutical company network, vital data becomes encrypted, automatically. But simply encrypting the data on the network is not enough – Global Data Sentinel goes much, much, further.
Our encryption protection is very comprehensive. But we go further.
With our solutions, pharmaceutical businesses are protected from Cyber-crime, malicious hacks, and unauthorized access by the use of two-factor authentication techniques including the use of biometrics.
With the use of biometric technology, and in particular fingerprints, we can ensure that login and password credentials are always used by authorized personnel. Also, because all changes to data are tracked, we can pinpoint and associate each action to the individual accessing the data at any time.
For the Pharmaceutical and BioTech industries, Global Data Sentinel’s solutions cover:
Typically valuable IPR data will be stored across a host of sites and even with some third party sub-contractors. Sharing key data only to those authorized and with full protection in transit is a potential billion-dollar risk.
Encryption on the network, on the devices and in transit offers strong protection. The use of biometrics to access data ensures only the right eyes have visibility, and files are protected against remote printing, copying or forwarding to unauthorized personnel. Access rights can also be revoked remotely with any stored data on devices also deleted.
Many manufacturers use third party companies to carry out drug trials – and sometimes more than one for each trial. Sharing information between the subcontractors, tracking the data and being able to see who is accessing it and what changes are being made is key to keeping the trial on track. Any tampering or manipulation of data will likely render the trial invalid and incur considerable costs.
Our industry–leading data auditing capability can provide tamper-proof evidence that all the procedures and processes have been followed correctly. What’s more the system can provide instant notification of any unauthorized or unusual activity creating an alert that prevents mistakes occurring and protects the drug trial investment.
Global Data Sentinel empowers its clients to take back full control over their data, eradicating the threat of cybercrime.
