Chat@Cloud, a chat function that provides fully secure intra-company communications in a fully secure environment, is set to be released in early summer, 2019. It will be added to the new DigitalArts@Cloud lineup, and will offer intra-company communications with a high level of safety while also boosting productivity.

Information security solution provider Digital Arts Inc. (headquartered in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Japan, CEO: Toshio Dogu, hereinafter referred to as "Digital Arts", Code 2326) is set to offer a secure solution for intra-company communications that improves both safety and productivity in the form of a chat function called "Chat@Cloud." The service will start in summer of 2019, and will be added to the lineup of "DigitalArts@Cloud*1," a cloud-based security service which prevents external targeted attacks via web and e-mail, as well as preventing risks of information leaks from inside companies.

Companies are facing a continued increase in cyber-attacks year by year, and of those, 98%*2 of attacks from external sources arrive via e-mail. Especially in recent years, these cyber-attacks are becoming more advanced. Many come in the form of business e-mail scams and identity fraud schemes, and as such employees need to be able to distinguish for themselves which of these are dangerous. This applies to e-mails originating both inside and outside the company. However, for companies and organizations that use e-mail as their main tool for outgoing and incoming communications, having to be wary of every e-mail takes precious time and is a direct hindrance to productivity.

In this state of affairs and with the government's stated goal of changing how people work, telecommuting is becoming more common. In line with this, more companies and organizations are implementing business chat functions as a tool for intra-company communication, and Digital Arts is set to accommodate this by adding Chat@Cloud to the lineup of its secure cloud service DigitalArts@Cloud. With this addition, external communications are kept in a fully secure environment by the i-FILTER@Cloud and m-FILTER@Cloud security solutions for web and e-mail, while internal communications are handled by Chat@Cloud, combining to form a highly secure and more productive work environment.

The Cloud@Chat function includes not only the ability to chat by text, but also the ability to video chat and share desktops as well. It makes simple intra-company communication possible, so that employees can operate in the office in a free, open style with meetings, conferences and the like seeming effortless, while also boosting productivity. In addition, Chat@Cloud is planned to be offered as an option along with other Digital Arts products such as file security solution FinalCode.
