Our investment in life sciences started over 3 years ago when we launched our industries initiative. Since then, we’ve deepened our commitment to support digital transformation at over 650 life sciences organizations including 12 of the top 15 global pharmaceutical companies. Box is seeing continued momentum in the life sciences industry even with global expansion recently in the Japan market with new customers including: Daichi Sankyo and Shionogi. These new customers join hundreds of other global pharmaceutical brands -- such as GlaxoSmithKline, AstraZeneca, Eli Lily, Boston Scientific, Edwards Life Sciences and Jazz Pharmaceuticals -- in using Box to manage and secure critical information in the cloud.
