Get the benefits of automotive cloud computing without the pitfalls

In this day and age, the automotive industry needs to do much more than simply build superior parts and assemble them into an excellent car. Customer demands have evolved and technology has improved, so it is vital for the automotive industry to embrace automation, connectivity, electrification and individualization to grow and stay relevant. Industry 4.0 leads to a persistent increase in the amount of data handled by the automotive industry. Multidisciplinary global teams and local regulations need a reliable framework for collaboration that is productive and aligned with security requirements and regulations.

With ownCloud, you get file collaboration and filesharing with a great user experience that also satisfies the highest data security requirements. For the automotive sector, especially dependent both on efficient teamwork across companies and the safeguarding of intellectual property,  ownCloud is the reliable automotive cloud solution to drive ahead.

Collaboration, distributed globally

In a global economy, workplace borders are fast dissolving. With ownCloud, global teams can easily and securely carry out filesharing and collaborate across borders while data is stored in local data hubs. Large files can be shared safely and efficiently. Federation provides a mesh of those data hubs, file drop folders foster seamless and secure exchange with external suppliers. This complies with regulations on the ground and offers maximum security in the automotive cloud.

Protect your data from espionage, and apply local regulations

Your data is precious, whether it’s blueprints for the next electrical engine, your local employment documents or customer data. Through file classification, rules-based workflow automation as well as logging and auditing, ownCloud makes sure that data access in the automotive cloud always conforms with policies and is accounted for. With the File Firewall, an advanced interface with leading Antivirus vendors and comprehensive Ransomware Protection, ownCloud keeps your data safe. Secure View enables the creation of ad-hoc Virtual Data Rooms to securely share sensitive data in the automotive cloud with select external contacts.

Automation at its core

ownCloud can handle large amounts of data fast, but it also has comprehensive automation capabilities.
