FDA selects Box for cloud content management
Box announced that the FDA has selected Box’s cloud content management platform to modernize its technical infrastructure and drive new ways to work in the cloud. With Box, the FDA is furthering its IT innovation strategy to digitize business processes and envision new ways to engage with the pharmaceutical and life sciences industry.
“The FDA is leading the way on how government agencies are leveraging modern technology to better engage with stakeholders and improve mission outcomes,” said Sonny Hashmi, Managing Director of Global Public Sector at Box. “FDA’s investment in a cloud strategy, including partnerships with companies such as Box, is poised to help the agency re-imagine stakeholder engagement, build digital experiences, and bring agility to mission delivery, while ensuring the privacy and security of sensitive data. We are thrilled to support the FDA mission, helping to transform the way they manage and share information.”
FDA IT leadership, tasked with modernizing its technology infrastructure and re-imagining how the FDA works with the life sciences industry, selected Box to:
- Improve external collaboration with third party organizations, including external experts, and supporting audits, discoveries and reviews;
- Digitize and automate processes leveraging Box as a central content portal where staff can easily collaborate and share materials internally and with external parties;
- Reduce complexity of infrastructure by eliminating fragmented content and document management tools; and
- Provide the FDA with added cybersecurity control and administrative capabilities necessary to govern and protect sensitive information at scale.
Agencies and departments servicing healthcare, military, educational, judicial, legislative and regulatory components of the U.S. Federal Government are using Box to be more efficient, streamlined and agile. Box is FedRAMP compliant and recently received Department of Defense SRG Impact Level 4 Authorization by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA). Box makes it easy for more than 76,000 organizations around the world to share, access, and collaborate securely on their most important content. With today’s announcement, the FDA joins leading global organizations that have moved to Box to power new ways of working, including the DOJ, the District of Columbia Government, GE and Procter & Gamble.
