A Domestic Communication Tool With Built-in Stable Security Features
- The Chat/Web conferencing System "Desk@Cloud" - Now Available -

Information security solutions provider Digital Arts Inc. (headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Japan; CEO: Toshio Dogu; hereinafter referred to as “Digital Arts”; Code 2326) is pleased to announce that its 100% Japanese made chat/web conferencing system "Desk@Cloud" will be available from October 1st.

Accelerating communication in secure environments with the launch of an in-house developed communication tool

In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we here at Digital Arts have primarily been working from home since April asto ensure the safety of both our customers and employees. Under these circumstances, an important issue that arose was "preventing the breakdown of internal communications" while simultaneously working to improve the quality of our products and services and maintaining employee health. At the same time, there was a growing desire to develop in-house tools that support operational efficiency through the balancing of security measures and the invigoration of business communication. For this reason, we decided to equip our ancillary business chat product "Chat@Cloud" with a fully-fledged web conferencing system and begin offering it under the name "Desk@Cloud" as a tool for easy communication inside and outside the company.

"Desk@Cloud" is a tool that allows you to easily and frequently carry out internal and external communications in a near face-to-face way. "Desk@Cloud" has a variety of text chat functions and has been designed to allow you to effortlessly hold web conferences, making everything from simple conversations within your company to making quick decisions possible. The name "Desk@Cloud" was derived from the idea that your PC/smartphone can be used as a work desk anytime, anywhere.

Providing an array of text chats and web conferences in a secure environment with a simple UI

There is no point in implementing a chat/web conferencing system unless employees are able to communicate effortlessly and quickly. In addition to equipping it with various functions essential for communication, we have strived to offer a simple and easy-to-understand UI that allows anyone to use "Desk@Cloud" effortlessly. However, when consolidating internal and external communication into a chat/web conferencing system, there is also the need to ensure a high level of security. From the perspective of a security provider, by including features that provide customers with dedicated domains that make it harder for them to be the targets of attacks and that prevent erroneous e-mail which could have previously occurred through email exchanges, we have been able to provide a more secure web conferencing system.

"Desk@Cloud" is a flexible system that supports a wide range of customers, from small and medium-sized enterprises that want to quickly and effortlessly begin using it with a small number of people to government offices and educational institutes that require more secure environments.
