Box GxP and Cloud Assurance for FDA Submission


USDM achieved start-to-finish configuration and validation of the customer’s new Box instance for GxP regulated data in two months, including CSV-compliant deliverables.

  • USDM maintains the validated state of the customer’s Box instance and manages all patches, updates, and changes to enable a continuous state of compliance.

The Results
