Like many businesses, pharmaceutical companies have sensitive trade secrets and proprietary information to protect. However, many also maintain confidential patient records, which require even more stringent security measures. Recently, WPG Consulting, one of New York City’s most respected IT consulting firms, employed their expertise and industry-leading solutions to meet the security challenges of a major pharmaceutical company.
Building Security Systems for a Pharmaceutical Organization
Understanding the Challenges
Before the project began, the client explained they needed a robust security infrastructure that can be scaled to meet future demands. Because their business information is so sensitive, the client also needed protection from a broad array of threats, including spyware, malware, and infiltration by data thieves. To meet these demands, WPG Consulting designed an effective security system capable of providing the protection the client need, now and in the future.
For this particular project, their IT consulting specialists designed and implementing a tiered security infrastructure, using advanced hardware such as Cisco® ASA 5585 and 5550 firewalls, combined with some of the most sophisticated software solutions available. The Cisco Identity Services Engine they chose provides adaptable, trusted access to employees, regardless of their physical location.
McAfee® M-Series IPS/IDS, HIPS, DLP, Anti-Virus & Anti-Spyware solutions protect against an extensive variety of threats, while Juniper® SSLVPN, Cisco IPsec/AnyConnect VPN, and Site-to-Site VPN prevent tracking of employee activity online. McAfee E-mail Gateway secures digital communications, without impeding workflow or compromising the effectiveness of the operation.
