Also available from Thales eSecurity is a full case study for the complete McKesson implementation of Thales eSecurity. Every segment McKesson operates in (pharmaceuticals, medical supplies and information technologies) must contend with a large number of regulatory standards for securing data. Identifying a solution for deployment without affecting operations or security – and subsequently slowing down the business process – made for a difficult task. Additionally, McKesson’s rapid growth led to data spreading throughout many disparate locations.

McKesson chose Thales eSecurity after a rigorous multi-month research and evaluation period. Thales eSecurity met all of the company’s stringent technical and business qualifications and scored the highest marks during McKesson’s testing process.
