bTrade Secure provides the data security that is critical to PHARMSOFT, as well as the electronic reporting required by our partners and customers”, said Paul-Peter Pokojski, CEO of PHARMSOFT.

bTrade LLC, a leading developer of secure and managed file transfer solutions, today announced it has partnered with European pharmaceutical technology and service provider, PHARMSOFT, to create a secure and encrypted gateway for reporting adverse drug reactions data throughout the pharmaceutical supply chain. At the core of this exchange is bTrade’s next-generation secure and managed file transfer solution--bTrade Secure, which has enabled PHARMSOFT to optimize it secure file and data management operations, enhance internal communications, and improve its ability to comply with current and future pharmaceutical guidelines.

bTrade Secure is a highly-scalable, secure and managed file transfer solution that runs on distributed systems platforms and works across disparate IT environments, offering a wide range of support for multiple file types, standards and protocols, including SFTP, FTPs, AS2, and more. bTrade Secure addresses the three principal challenges faced by most enterprises today--security, ease-of-use and management/control.

PHARMSOFT is using bTrade Secure to provide the encryption, compression and security with their next-generation Pharmacovigilance database called saphëus, which is used by pharmaceutical companies for collecting, editing, analyzing and reporting all incoming adverse drug reaction cases to the companies from authorities, patients, pharmacists and medical specialists. Serious cases need to be reported to authorities within a short amount of time, and the saphëus database sends this confidential data through the bTrade Secure gateway and forwards it securely to the authorities and other companies.

“We chose bTrade Secure to integrate with our next generation Pharmacovigilance Database, saphëus, which notifies authorities and companies of adverse drug reactions. bTrade Secure provides the data security that is critical to PHARMSOFT, as well as the electronic reporting required by our partners and customers”, said Paul-Peter Pokojski, CEO of PHARMSOFT. “We are looking forward to a long and beneficial relationship with bTrade.”

“Protecting business data is important for any organization, but for those in highly regulated industries it becomes critical,” said Steve Zapata, President and CEO of bTrade. "We look forward to a long-term partnership with PHARMSOFT demonstrating our commitment to providing best-of-breed secure and managed file transfer solutions to meet the stringent security and compliance requirements of PHARMSOFT and the pharmaceutical industry.
“Expanding our presence internationally is very important to our growth strategy," says Zapata. "By partnering with PHARMSOFT, we've gained a well-respected partner in Europe, and look forward to further expansion of our solutions and services to both new and existing customers.”
