Large Secure File Sharing is this Informatics and Data Management Services Organization’s Mission
This informatics and data management services organization provides services to a large number of clients in the life science industry. Founded by a team of physicians and scientists, this organization’s mission is to break down the barriers to efficient and cost-effective technology to accelerate life-saving research. They specialize in cardiovascular image transport, de-identification, and repositories. And with locations in San Francisco, with offices in Research Triangle Park, Silicon Valley, and Belgrade, Serbia, their file transfer processes span the globe.
Their Key Challenges
When this organization faced the challenge of transferring all their biomedical research data, it was a major setback since files of this nature are often extensive in size and hard to transfer across standard FTP. These kinds of files also contain highly sensitive patient medical information that must remain secure and is a key priority for this level of healthcare file sharing.
They required a solution that would allow them to transfer healthcare files to geographically dispersed imaging labs spanning the globe within minutes, while also maintaining security and guaranteeing each file’s delivery.
Their Chosen Solution
This informatics and data management services organization chose FileCatalyst Workflow, a web-portal designed to accelerate ingestion and distribution tasks in order to overcome the challenges of secure file sharing for healthcare. FileCatalyst Workflow combines three powerful web-based managed file transfer workflows:
