Even though the cloud is nothing new, misconceptions about it abound. Many companies turn away from cloud technology because they incorrectly believe that the cloud is less secure, and they can’t be compliant in the cloud. In fact, the cloud is more secure, and compliance is easier in the cloud.
MasterControl EVP Matt Lowe and GxP-CC CEO James Francum assuage cloud fears in this webinar. Software as a service (SaaS) companies can spend more time and money on security than the average IT team at any given life sciences company. This means that on the cloud, security issues are detected and addressed faster than in an on-premise environment.
For those who are worried about compliance, the trend from regulatory bodies is to actually encourage cloud use. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently expanded its own cloud use and regulations show cloud use is becoming expected. Even in the life sciences, cloud is the new norm.
