The company engaged Cognizant for data and systems protection (DSP) and governance, risk and compliance (GRC) programs across North America, Singapore and the Czech Republic. We deployed five new security services: tiered authentication, privileged identification and access management (IAM), Oracle Identity Manager, PING and federated identity management. This process included delivering more than 80 projects, completing nine major upgrades and retiring or decommissioning three services.
Cognizant’s core team has remained constant, with other flexible resources available to accelerate product delivery. This “core and flex” approach has transformed the pharma’s operating strategy, creating significant efficiencies and a unique “service-as-a-project” delivery model. In addition, Cognizant provides strategic advisory services that improve security resilience by identifying key risks and defining a roadmap for cloud security and other modernization initiatives.
