Box will continue to work toward the realization of a digital society in which credibility is guaranteed by digital trust and the promotion of corporate DX.

The two companies will expand the study and implementation of a service model that can be used in an open manner with the cooperation of private companies toward the issues and considerations summarized in the report and social implementation.

In the future, we also aim to link with digital signatures for European corporations, which have different standards from Japan, so that Japanese companies can use “e-seal” for transactions with their European branches or other companies based in Europe.・We are planning to develop a mechanism.
