The development and production of drugs and medical devices has been revolutionized by the onset of the digital age. Extensive collaboration between research teams, doctors, and patients is essential to product development and requires sharing large amounts of data from clinical trials. To speed collaboration efforts and overcome large file transfer issues, pharmaceutical and medical device companies worldwide rely on Accellion Secure File Transfer. Accellion is easy-to-use and provides the necessary layers of security and tracking to maintain compliance with HIPAA and FDA regulations.
“From clinical research to drug and device design, the pharmaceutical and medical device industries generate a significant amount of data. With files growing in size and stricter FDA security guidelines, sharing this information electronically has become increasingly more difficult,” said Yorgen Edholm, president and CEO of Accellion. “Accellion Secure File Transfer provides a fast, secure way to share digital files while meeting the strictest security and compliance requirements.”
“Since replacing FTP with the Accellion Secure File Transfer solution we have eliminated the security and support issues typical with FTP,” said Kirk Howard, senior IT Manager of Omnyx. “Accellion enables our employees to share large files quickly, securely, and effortlessly while meeting our strict compliance requirements. It has also enabled us to free-up valuable IT resources.”
