ownCloud secure cloud solution for filesharing

Good news today for schools, colleges, universities and researchers, ownCloud announced a new program that makes it even easier – and more affordable – way to securely share and sync files and data.

As so much educational material goes online, schools and universities have been looking for a secure way to share this material and still be easy to use for the students and faculty. This program not only gives them an aggressive price point, but enables them to set whatever security protocols they want to secure the data.

Says our partner Overt:
“Sharing and syncing files while maintaining existing internal and governmental policies has been an issue for the colleges and universities for some time,” said Chris Andre, CTO, Overt Software Solutions Ltd. “ownCloud allows very convenient access – across devices – and enables sharing and collaborating between users. Due to the open source nature of ownCloud we have been able to enhance our services to even cover authentication using Shibboleth.”

ownCloud School Edition, targeted for schools starts at $1,250 per year for up to 350 users and $1,750 for up to 500 users. ownCloud Education Edition, targeted for universities and school systems 500 to several hundred thousand users starts at $5,000 per year for up to 500 users and 2 ownCloud instances.

Both editions are immediately available and can be purchased through the ownCloud partner network or directly from ownCloud. For more information about the ownCloud Education Program, read here.
