This case study of a Global 500 pharmaceuticals company is based on a December 2020 survey of PKWARE customers by TechValidate, a third-party research service. The profiled company asked to have their name blinded to protect their confidentiality.


The business challenges that led the profiled company to evaluate and ultimately select PKWARE:

  • Data tracking (discovery/classification)
  • Custom data masking

The compliance measures that most influenced their decision to use PKWARE solutions:

  • GPDR
“With PKWARE’s data security technology, I have confidence that we are meeting our data compliance goals.”

Use Cases:

The company protects these data types with PKWARE:

  • Personal data (SSNs, race, religion, minors, etc.)
  • Healthcare information
  • Confidential files

They protect the data uncovered by PKWARE’s data discovery using:

  • Access Control
  • Encrypting
  • Masking (redaction, de-identification, etc)

They also use PKWARE functionality for data security with data protection (masking or encryption).


The immediate benefits they experienced following the deployment of PKWARE include:

  • Met audit and compliance requirements
  • Eliminated fines and fees associated with breaches
  • Improved protection of PI/PII

They increased their data security by 75 – 90% since implementing PKWARE technology.

They saved 50 – 75% of time previously spent by moving from manually applied protection to PKWARE’s automated discovery and protection solution.
