The file transfer protocol (FTP) enables the exchange of files between a computer (client) and a server. Via the Internet, it is possible to dial into a server and upload and download files. As one of the oldest protocols on the Internet, it is now considered extremely insecure by today’s standards since passwords are transmitted unencrypted in plain text. Then there is the supposedly more secure SFTP that encrypts data during transmission but stores unencrypted.

ownCloud offers a modern, fast and highly secure FTP alternative with which files can be easily and effectively exchanged, even in the most demanding IT environments.

Secure File Exchange & Full Data Control

With a central frontend, users can access all storage systems within their company’s distributed IT environment anywhere, anytime, from any device, no matter where their data resides. Whether the data is in applications, object stores, on-premises storage or in the cloud, it remains secure, transparent and under the control of IT. Encryption during storage ensures that your files are securely protected on the server but can still be conveniently shared between users. As an FTP alternative, ownCloud continues to check all access requests via File Firewall but users can further improve security by using additional tools such as attack detection or log management. With WebDAV, mobile libraries, the ownCloud API and various Enterprise Edition apps, you benefit from secure file sharing that keeps you in control of your files and scales your system securely as you grow.
