ownCloud, Inc., the maker of the open source file sync and share (EFSS) software with the same name, today announced its new hybrid cloud enterprise file sync & share model.
The new model allows customers to choose their cloud storage services and still have control over it and manage the control plane, including encryption keys, on-premise. The new model is part of ownCloud 8.2, the latest version of the company’s flagship EFSS solution.
Moving control plane and other features on premise offers greater control and security. The existing hybrid models leave the control plane in the public cloud, making files more susceptible to hackers and government agencies.
