Ensure Security

Make files and folder accessible for legitimate use by eligible users while protecting them from anyone else.

Advanced security for your files and folders with ownCloud

Organizations need to keep their data and information safe. Safe from theft, safe from loss, safe from abuse, safe from prying eyes. Also, users have a reasonable expectation of and in some places a legal claim to data privacy and data security.

ownCloud helps protect organizations, users, files and folders through a comprehensive approach to security. It encrypts data at rest and in transfer. Its Privacy-by-Design, Zero-Knowledge-Architecture as well as optional on-premises hosting make ownCloud the safe choice for at-risk data. It authenticates using multiple auth factors and can integrate with existing identity providers. Thorough permissions management and policy enforcement as well as extensive logging make sure access is traceable and limited to eligible users.

When sharing files or folders with ownCloud, they do not leave your organizations hard drive. Instead, recipients have to authenticate so your organization knows who accessed which file when. If sending out public links, you can optionally set an expiration date and a password. For collaborating in real time while also making sure documents stay within your organizations data center, ownCloud integrates with on-premises installations of ONLYOFFICE, Collabora and Microsoft Office Online Server. Using Secure View, office documents and PDFs can be provided read-only with comprehensive restrictions and watermarks, e.g. to create a virtual data room.
