Empowering Innovation, Safeguarding Data

A 2023 study by Accenture found that 74% of pharmaceutical and life sciences executives reported struggling to manage the increasing complexity of identity and access management (CIAM) within their organizations.

CIAM Solutions for the Modern Pharma

The pharmaceutical sector navigates a landscape characterized by stringent regulations, globally dispersed teams, and the critical need to safeguard sensitive data.  Managing identities and access permissions within this complex environment presents a formidable challenge; ensuring security and compliance while enabling streamlined operations is paramount for success.

Key CIAM Challenges for Pharmaceutical Companies:

Data Security and Regulatory Compliance: Adhering to industry-specific regulations (HIPAA, GDPR, etc.) while maintaining ironclad protection of sensitive research data, intellectual property, and patient information.
Managing Distributed Teams: Controlling and tracking access for researchers, manufacturers, sales personnel, and partners scattered across international locations.
Balancing Security and Usability: Providing seamless user experiences without compromising security, especially when it concerns vital research and development processes.
Legacy System Integration: Incorporating complex existing systems and applications into a centralized customer identity and access management solution.
The Need for Specialized CIAM Expertise for Pharma
Pharmaceutical companies shoulder the weight of maintaining robust security protocols, adhering to strict compliance standards, and optimizing collaboration in a complex environment. CIAM solutions that aren't tailored to these unique demands can exacerbate these challenges. This is where Next Reason's expertise can streamline your CIAM approach, addressing industry-specific pain points and driving tangible improvements.
