Pharmaceutical IT chief melds five cloud security companies to bolt down resource access

Ellen Messmer | Jan. 30, 2014
AMAG Pharmaceuticals tech chief Nathan McBride says goal is better cloud application security, no passwords.

It's an ambitious project, and AMAG is spending about $100,000 to get this done in the coming year by enlisting these five cloud-security service providers to interact with each other in ways they never did before. He says the five vendors are undertaking this project, which is now in lab testing, to expand what they may be able to offer not just to AMAG, but to other customers, in the future.McBride says he anticipates the project with the five cloud security vendors will be ready to go live as a service by December when AMAG Pharmaceuticals expects to have hundreds of its certificate-based smartphones and other devices ready for employee use for secure access to cloud-based applications without any password required, along with document controls and auditing in place.
