When you’re ready to deploy ownCloud, no matter how straight-forward or complex your implementation will be, we will help you to ensure a smooth and effective production roll-out. With four levels of deployment support available, you will be able to tailor your deployment services to match your needs.



Multi-language support

ownCloud is available in many languages, and translations are constantly being both extended and improved.

Intuitive web-interface

ownCloud’s design principles put the user center stage, by providing a great user experience and seamless workflows. They do this by focusing on ease-of-use and an intuitive design.

Desktop apps for Windows, MacOS & Linux

The ownCloud desktop client keeps your files in sync and provides many additional features, by directly integrating with the file browser (e.g. sharing of files). The ownCloud Desktop Sync Client for Windows is delivered as Windows Installer (MSI), suitable for all common solutions for Windows software distribution.

Virtual File System

The Desktop Client with Virtual File System improves usability and reduces local storage requirements. Users can share files in the Explorer even if they are not stored locally. The client reflects the file and folder structure of the server, regardless of whether the data is completely available locally. If a file is needed, it can be downloaded and opened on-demand.

With this feature users can receive notifications from administrators & apps. 


The ownCloud Guests feature allows to create ownCloud Guest accounts with very limited access rights. Simply share with external users just by entering an email address in the sharing dialog. 

Workflows (automated file operations)


Enables administrators to specify rules and conditions (file size, file mime-type, group membership and more) to automatically assign tags (see File Tagging) to uploaded files. Based on those tags automated file operations (workflow actions) like File Retention (automated file retention periods) can be conducted. Can be extended by “Workflow Apps”.

ownCloud Apps
certified for Enterprise use

ownCloud‘s open architecture and APIs allow developers to rapidly extend core functionality and enhance the solution to meet user needs. ownCloud is highly extensible therefore, enabling the addition of new features quickly via plug-in applications (ownCloud Apps).


Storage Infrastructure Consolidation


Single point of access to all supported storage systems. ownCloud unites your storage resources on one platform giving you secure access without requiring a VPN connection.

End-to-End Encryption

End-to-End Encryption for ownCloud increases the security standard for file storage and sharing. It enables users to create folders for client-side encrypted internal or external data exchange. Neither the administrator of the ownCloud Server nor third parties who have access to the infrastructure can read the data. Individual or central key management and provisioning are both available.

End-to-End Encryption with key service




For maximum security and control in data exchange, ownCloud offers an additional Key Service application that enables professional key management with the option of using USB tokens, HSM/Smartcards and other hardware devices to decrypt data. Device-based key management provides the highest security level as decryption keys are stored separately from the user’s workstation and can’t be extracted from the hardware device. 

Ransomware Protection


Ransomware attacks are an ever-present malware risk, both for large enterprises as well as for private users. Once affected, whole hard drives or parts of it can become encrypted leading to unrecoverable data loss that directly translates to significant effort and cost. For this exact purpose the ownCloud Ransomware Protection App protects companies by blocking uploaded files known to originate from ransomware to preserve original, unaffected files in ownCloud. Additional to that the App can automatically block user accounts where ransomware was detected and also provides smart mechanisms for the restoration of infected files.

2-Factor Authentication

Two-Factor authentication through TOTP (Time-Based One-Time Password Algorithm). For example compatible with Google Authenticator.

Active Session Management

List active sessions of a user and disconnect them selectively. 


Virus scanner for files (using ClamAV). 

Encryption of Primary Storage (AES-256), key management


Server-side encryption of primary storage using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). When enabled, the admin is unable to read user-data of an instance. 

File Integrity Checking

To prevent file corruption the integrity of up- and downloaded files are automatically verified by comparing their unique checksums before and after transfer. 

Auditing/Logging Module 


Admin feature to log login and logout events of users, file system operations, including actions on the trash bin, internal sharing of a file, sharing a link with a user, or permission changes as well as user management actions (creation/deletion/disabling/enabling of users), actions on ownCloud apps (enable/disable) and administrative actions from the command line. 

File Firewall 


Admin feature for application-level file access rules to protect files in the organization. Inspects file requests made on an ownCloud server, and prevents ownCloud from executing any code if the firewall rules are met. Possible rules are IP address range, device type, file size, subnet, time, group membership. Logging is configurable.


OAuth2 is the open industry-standard protocol for secure authorization of clients. It greatly enhances security while facilitating the integration of third party applications or web services. 

Password Policy

The Password Policy application enables ownCloud administrators to define password requirements like minimum characters, numbers, capital letters and more for all kinds of password endpoints like user and guest accounts or public link sharing passwords. Additional to that administrators can define an expiration date for passwords and set certain policies to avoid the reuse of passwords. To add another layer of security, the administrator can enforce expiration dates for public link shares. As soon as the expiration date is reached the share will be removed automatically. 

SAML/SSO Authentication


Authentication feature using the SAML standard. This allows Single Sign-On (SSO) via Shibboleth, ADFS, Ping Identity and more. 

Native Brute Force Protection 



The Brute Force Protection extension prevents attackers from “guessing” user passwords through a brute force attack. Repeated failed login attempts from the same IP address are delayed, minimizing the chances of a successful attack.

Document Classification


To prevent sensitive data from being leaked and safe-guard personal data as per regulation guidelines, the Document Classification extension enables administrators to automatically classify documents and define policies for sharing documents based on defined levels of confidentiality.

Secure View


Secure View allows ownCloud users to share sensitive data in such a way that it can only be viewed by the recipient in the browser. If users share data, they can choose to forbid editing, downloading, copy/pasting and printing a shared document. Additionally, documents are protected with watermarks that identify the user and make screenshots traceable. Secure View is a Collabora Online feature, and works with documents of all common office file formats (docx/xlsx/pptx/odx/pdf). 

Storage Encryption with HSM support


ownCloud Server supports storage encryption with master keys stored in hardware security modules (HSM). In contrast to the regular master key-based storage encryption that stores the keys on the storage, storage encryption with keys in an HSM allows administrators to completely prevent anyone who has access to the storage from accessing the data stored in ownCloud.

Life Cycle Management 


Automatically archive and then delete files that are no longer needed, ensuring data protection compliance.

Technical Toolbox

Command Line Interface (CLI) 


Management of instances via command line and/or scripts (OCC). 

Provisioning APIs 


Contains APIs to enable the provision of the following Admin /Group-Admin functionalities outside the WebGUI via HTTP-requests:

  • Create, edit, delete and query user attributes
  • Query, set and remove groups, set quota and query total storage used in ownCloud
