Information Security in Food, Drugs & Life Sciences
In the interest of public health, food and medicine products are subject to strict regulations. Production, storage, delivery and quality controls are governed by international laws and agreements. Companies are also required to document their compliance with these standards and must safely store these records and protect them from manipulation.
Requirements for electronic records are part of the EU’s Good Manufacturing Practice, Title 21 CFR Part 11 of the FDA and the USDA’s HACCP guidelines. To maintain a complete audit trail, pharmaceutical and food industries must have adequate software solutions capable of managing access to sensitive data.
Protecting Intellectual Property
Protecting data from unauthorized access is particularly relevant in the pharmaceutical sector to prevent the loss of patented information and intellectual property. Businesses in the life sciences industries spend years researching new drugs. If their discoveries were to fall into the wrong hands, that investment might never be recouped.
It is no surprise then, that this valuable data presents a desirable target for both cybercriminals and malicious insiders. To prevent cyberattacks and employee data theft, access to sensitive information must be safeguarded and strictly controlled.

Boost Security & Compliance
With access profiles and the use of role-based access control, our IAM solution tenfold acts as a central hub for all access rights and user accounts in your organization. tenfold helps you keep track of user privileges and applies the “need-to-know” or least privilege principle to restrict access to your sensitive data.
All these measures help minimize the risk of cyberattacks and data theft. Thanks to it user lifecycle management, tenfold automatically adjusts user permissions across all connected systems, be it your on-prem file servers or Active Directory, Microsoft 365 or third-party applications like SAP ERP.
In tenfold, privileges are subjected to regular user access reviews to ensure any permissions that are no longer needed can be identified and removed in time. This helps cut down on the security risks created by excess privileges, which are often exploited by intruders to gain access to additional systems.
tenfold guarantees that all changes to user accounts and access rights are fully documented. The software also produces detailed reports showing you who has or had access to sensitive information. This helps you prove during compliance audits that you have implemented and maintained adequate security measures to safeguard critical documents at all times.
