Security & flexibility for audit-proof data storage

Read the full story

As a pharmaceutical company, medac GmbH was faced with a variety of business data and regulations that had to be fulfilled. When looking for a solution, the company placed great importance on auditing acceptability, scalability, as well as on hardware and vendor independence. The ability to integrate various solutions made iTernity iCAS the ideal choice.

Strict regulatory compliance requirements for pharmaceutical companies

The company at a glance:

  • Company: medac GmbH
  • Industry: Pharmaceutics
  • Employees: over 1000
  • Focus: therapeutic agents for oncological, urological and autoimmune diseases
  • Locations: 10 branches across the globe

As a German pharmaceutical company for clinical specialty products, medac GmbH is bound by strict regulatory compliance requirements to archive various application data in an audit-proof manner for long periods of time. As a global company, medac GmbH also cooperates closely with international authorities to ensure compliance with all regulations concerning the development of medical products and clinical trials. For all internal processes, transparency and integrity of data are absolutely essential.

Challenging requirements concerning security and scalability

With that in mind, medac’s internal quality management demanded from Optimal Systems an audit-proof archiving for enaio’s document management system (DMS). Another important source of data for the archive came from e-mail and file server archiving via Veritas’ Enterprise Vault. A completely virtualized SAN-Storage was added as storage. A flexible solution that could combine all implemented elements and keep up with the company’s continuous growth was the basic requirement in this business environment.

“The fact that iCAS is certified for all our applications as well as for our storage technology has made our decision easy. Particularly positive was that I did not have to coordinate different companies for the implementation. The partners had been working so well together that I only had to communicate with one side."

iCAS combines all solutions

In order to ensure secure and tamper-proof storage of information and long-term data management, medac deployed iCAS. The archiving solution operates as a central data management platform between applications (DMS, e-mail etc.) and storage infrastructure.

iCAS solution offered medac GmbH, in addition to complete support of the virtual environment, further important benefits:

  • No hardware or vendor lock-in
  • Easy and transparent administration
  • Smooth integration into the company-wide backup concept
  • Excellent scalability and cost-effectiveness

In the near future, medac GmbH plans to connect its Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) with DMS and iCAS. With iTernity’s support, it would be easy to realize this plan.
