To provide users with digital workspaces that are both efficient and secure, integrations are key. This is why in our upcoming modernized ownCloud Infinite Scale, we put APIs front and center. It’s already available in a fifth Tech Preview release!
While we continue to improve and extend ownCloud Infinite Scale, we also work with our partners to make functionality of the current ownCloud more straightforwardly available. For example, the productivity-focused email software eM Client now integrates ownCloud as a File Provider. This enables users to send emails with links to ownCloud shares instead of attachments, which are pretty cumbersome and insecure in comparison.
Across a lot of use cases, ownCloud makes for a nifty and efficient file provider to supplement distributed software solutions. One example is the open password manager Buttercup that can be set up using ownCloud to make your passwords seamlessly and safely available across your devices and even your whole team.
There is one synchronized file provision need that has in the course of the pandemic become ever more pressing: How to share files within popular workstream collaboration suites – safely and in compliance with data secrecy rules? We have squared the circle and resolved the apparent contradictions. Stay tuned for our announcement that will make secure file collaboration much more comfortable. The recent ownCloud 10.7 release brings groundwork for this upcoming functionality. Additionally, ownCloud Server 10.7 makes the user interface more straightforward and encryption more efficient!
Barely a month seems to go by without a major new IT security problem. As the ProxyLogon/Hafnium hack involving a chain of vulnerabilities in unpatched on-prem installations of Microsoft Exchange has evolved into a ransomware threat, we explain how ownCloud prepares and protects against Ransomware attacks.
