Slick and Secure

 

The pressure on pharmaceutical companies to meet strict compliance regulations concerning how they exchange sensitive data means that the standard email is no longer an effective way of transferring this information. Organisations today must be able to guarantee the secure delivery of data files inside and outside the company, regardless of the file size, partner or underlying IT system.

Addressing these challenges, emerging managed file transfer (MFT) solutions include the technologies, services and capabilities to transfer critical information safely to internal and external business partners. This article will examine the growth of MFT technology and discuss how businesses across the pharmaceutical sector can gain control over the movement of data to reduce security risk and help to deliver best practice to meet critical compliance requirements.

THE HISTORY OF INFORMATION TRANSFER

Cast your mind back to the early 1990s, before the internet, an age where communicating via physical mail or fax was deemed perfectly acceptable. These processes often proved to be time consuming and laborious, requiring constant manual input and lacking any real security. Time equates to money, and having to wait for results and analysis via mail can affect product development and severely delay critical trial projects. From a security perspective, a doctor faxing patient data to a hospital at the other end of the country could not be sure there was someone waiting to pick up the document at the other end; the physical nature of the process meant that confirmation of delivery and receipt was problematic.

Bringing more control to temperature-sensitive logistics

UPS Supply Chain Solutions

By 2016, world sales of cold-chain drugs and biologics such as vaccines and blood plasma products will near $240 billion1. The increase has led to a surge in discussion about how to protect these products throughout the transportation logistics cycle. Industry experts are recommending that the term “cold chain” be eliminated from rules, guidance and best-practice documents. “Cold chain” now includes a broader spectrum of temperature ranges, such as controlled room temperature (CRT). This white paper focuses on the initial steps required to establish a temperature-sensitive supply chain.
