With more than 50 million users and 200,000 installations worldwide, ownCloud is the most popular open source file sync and share solution. With a central frontend, users can access all storage systems in your company's distributed IT environment from anywhere, anytime and from any device, no matter where their data resides – in applications, object stores, on-premises storage or in the cloud. Secure, transparent and under the control of IT. This increases both safety and productivity.
Enterprise file sync and share from any device has never been so easy.
With ownCloud, users have a single interface from which they can access, sync and share files on any device, anytime, from anywhere. Users can quickly find and share the files they need whether shared by others or created themselves. With features like password protection, link expiration, anonymous and full access sharing, files are managed accordingly.
The new end-to-end encryption or E2EE plugin for ownCloud increases the security standard for data exchange and file sharing.
The data is completely encrypted and neither the administrator of the ownCloud server nor third parties who have access to the infrastructure can read the data.
2-Factor authentication adds another layer of access security. The authentication method confirms a user’s identity utilizing a combination of two independent components. Instead of simply requiring a username/password combination, an additional access token (time-based one-time password/TOTP), which can be obtained via mobile phones for instance, is needed to gain access to ownCloud accounts.
Workflows provide a means to automate file operations when certain criteria are met. Current examples comprise of “auto-tagging” (automated assignment of tags with respect to certain rules/conditions) and “retention” (automated deletion of files assigned to specific tags with respect to certain rules/conditions). Many further use cases are also possible and can be integrated with “Workflow apps”.
Say your corporate policy dictates that only employees of a certain group can access files when traveling internationally and data may only be accessed from remote offices. Moreover, a file tagged ‘confidential’ cannot be accessed from a web browser in China, where your company does not have offices. ownCloud’s sophisticated file access rules engine provides the means to easily implement policies that enhance control and govern access to files.
Data Infrastructure Modernization
You work in IT at an organization that has unstructured data spread across multiple data silos such as Windows networks drives, Microsoft SharePoint, FTP servers, object storage (e.g. S3) or public cloud services (e.g. Google Drive, Dropbox or other WebDAV-enabled services). Having previously created policies and set permissions at the user, file, application, storage or cloud level, you want the ability to preserve and reuse those same policies and permission.
ownCloud offers benefits to those industries dealing with sensitive data or need to fulfill special security and compliance regulation. These industries include finance, education and research, healthcare, and the government and public sector.
