Founded in the United Kingdom (U.K.) in 2002, Cambridge Cognition specializes in the creation and delivery of cognitive tests to assess brain health within three market segments: academia, pharmaceutical clinical trials, and digital health. Each industry depends on the reliable collection and flow of data to perform accurate clinical tests. This means Cambridge Cognition is operating in an environment with no margin for error; where seconds of downtime can result in clients wasting time and money, with the potential to negatively impact a treatment plan or compromise results.
Meeting the Challenge: Cambridge Cognition’s decision to host data in the cloud was dependent on the vision to make data accessible from anywhere and on any device. The challenge was whether that could be done successfully while guaranteeing the security of information at rest and in transmission – all the advanced science, technology, and functionality have no value if the software is not available or is unable to send data or retrieve information from the server, when running the tests.
- Healthcare, Biotechnology
- Cambridge Cognition sought a vendor that understood the market and the sensitivity of healthcare data. They wanted a true service provider that was going to be responsive to a customer of their size and give a feeling of comfort backed by true security. When considering different vendors, it was critical for Cambridge Cognition to find a provider that could meet its compliance needs—from HIPAA to ISO/IEC 27001—and was willing to be audited.
- Cambridge Cognition has used its Armor-secured platform to deliver more than 1 million cognitive tests. Armor has helped Cambridge Cognition in terms of our growth by having datacenters in the United States and Europe, as well as in Asia-Pacific, helping to provide reassurance in areas where controlling data flow and replication is particularly critical.
