Global General Availability of the E-Signature Capability Includes New Security and Admin Features
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., November 09, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Box, Inc. (NYSE: BOX), the leading Content Cloud, today released Box Sign, its native e-signature capability, to all Business and Enterprise customers globally at no additional cost. Building on the initial release of Box Sign to U.S. and Canadian customers in October, Box Sign now delivers additional layers of security, granular admin features, and support for multiple languages. In order to meet the growing demand for digital transactions in a hybrid work environment, these features enable businesses worldwide to digitize and modernize the way agreements are managed, secured, and governed in the cloud.
Box Sign delivers customers with unlimited, native signatures where their content already lives and inherits Box’s industry-leading security and governance posture to reduce IT spend, eliminate content silos, and facilitate legal and regulatory compliance. Additionally, with the Box for Salesforce integration and robust set of APIs, customers can generate and execute transactions directly from within Salesforce and developers can easily connect Box Sign to other applications.
"Using legacy e-signature tools would have cost us $2 to $5 per signature, and with 15,000 students, the cost was prohibitive," said Jason Perez, IT Director at Charter One. "We’ve used other tools to fill our e-signature needs, but they don't all have the same functionality, and they can create content silos. I'm very excited that now we can utilize Box Sign; simply inserting it into the workflows that we already have with Box. It’s going to be amazing."
Since rolling out Box Sign, Box was named a Major Player in the IDC MarketScape Worldwide eSignature Software 2021 Vendor Assessment*. Building on the momentum, Box released the following features to Box Sign globally:
Password-protection for documents sent for signature to deliver an additional layer of protection for documents containing sensitive information.
SMS-based 2-factor authentication to verify the identity of the signer to help customers meet regional and industry-specific regulations.
Localized Box Sign user interface to enable senders and signers to transact in over 20 languages including English, French, German, Japanese, Chinese, Spanish and more.
Robust admin reporting to provide enterprise-wide visibility and tracking of documents sent for signature, on a per sender basis, as well as by date range.
"After sitting down with hundreds of customers, their number one request was to add native e-signatures to Box," said Diego Dugatkin, Chief Product Officer at Box. "First, we delivered unlimited signatures, and today, we are thrilled to bring an enhanced Box Sign to Business and Enterprise customers globally. Box Sign extends our vision for the Box Content Cloud, providing customers with one platform to manage the entire content lifecycle, including digital transactions. We’ve only scratched the surface when it comes to adoption and innovation in this space."
Box Sign, including the admin and security features, is generally available globally for customers on Business and Enterprise plans at no additional cost today. More information can be found here and on the Box Blog.
