CB Blockchain Seal for SharePoint supports files from a vast list, such as Office documents, PDFs, reports, invoices and receipts, contracts and paychecks, e-mails, software code, audiovisual files, among others. Thus, it’s an out-of-the-box solution that successfully ensures data integrity and full data audibility with a low-cost range.
