Drug R&D Challenges

The research and development (R&D) process for new drugs and therapies takes as long as a decade, costs upwards of $2 billion, and involves a wide variety of constituents.  Sponsors, Contract Research Organizations (CROs) and other third-party researchers, clinical trials sites, and other partners must securely access internal and external systems and applications and exchange sensitive and proprietary information throughout the process.  Clinical trials alone typically require each individual participant to receive a unique account and associated access information for each relevant system and application – introducing significant efficiency and security risks for all involved.

Speeding the R&D Process while Protecting Intellectual Property

Sponsors must engage CROs, sites, and other partners quickly, minimize administrative overhead, and ensure secure collaboration throughout the R&D process.  Exostar’s Secure Access Manager helps sponsors meet these objectives by supporting:

  • An architecture that only requires system and application owners to connect assets once, regardless of the number of partners that need access
  • Faster partner engagement via outsourced, optimized onboarding techniques
  • Delegated administration, where asset owners assign access privileges and the solution enforces them
  • Stronger information security against bots, phishing, or targeted system attacks through hardware token, software certificate, phone app, and other multi-factor authentication options for asset access

Solving the #1 Clinical Trials Technology Challenge

In a recent Society for Clinical Research Sites study, 40 percent of the over 500 sites surveyed cited too many systems requiring different processes and login credentials as their number one technology challenge, and 90 percent ranked it in their top four.  Exostar’s Secure Access Manager solves this problem with a trusted single sign-on (SSO) solution that:

  • Allows individuals to access all internal and external systems and applications to which they have been granted permission with a single login/account
  • Works across all connected sponsors and industry platforms, including the Shared Investigator Platform
  • Enhances productivity by reducing login times and the need to manage and maintain dozens of usernames and passwords
