Our key differentiators

Putting IT back in control

As a vendor of on-premises solutions, Nextcloud puts the customer in control over their data in the most literal and direct sense. Building on that, our products integrate powerful capabilities to control and monitor data exchange and communication, including our unique File Access Control and workflow features, extensive audit logs, fine-grained sharing controls and more.

Security first

Security is Nextcloud customers' greatest concerns and our prime advantage over competitors. Nextcloud features a host of unique, innovative security technologies from brute force protection to advanced server side and integrated end-to-end, client side encryption with enterprise-grade key handling and a wide range of security hardenings. Our security has been reviewed by trusted third parties and is backed by a USD 5000 Security Bug Bounty Program, providing the confidence that data meant to stay private will stay private.

User Focus

At Nextcloud, we believe that an open, transparent development process and a clear focus on the needs of users and customers results in a better product.

By having access to our engineers, customers get the best possible support while having an opportunity to participate in and benefit from the open source model. See our enterprise page for more information about our Enterprise Support Subscriptions.

Our company

Nextcloud was started by ownCloud inventor Frank Karlitschek and a dozen experienced open source entrepreneurs and engineers to empower users to take back control over their data and communication. We envisioned our company to develop the next generation open source Enterprise File Sync and Share and have been relentlessly pursuing that vision, raising the bar for self-hosted solutions.

The company was launched in 2016 as a spin-off from Struktur AG, a leading web conferencing and financial planning software company since 1995, servicing customers like Deutsche Bank, Vodafone, BNP Paribas and many others.

Fully employee-funded and pursueing a organic-growth strategy, Nextcloud already turned profitable by the end of 2016 and had nearly tripled to 35 employees by the end of 2017. See our full team here.

By January 2018, after record growth in 2017, Nextcloud had become the most sought-after Enterprise File Sync and Share solution according to Google Trends and was widely recognized as leading the on-premises Enterprise File Sync and Share industry.

From launch to today

Our launch has been covered extensively in the media and we've been interviewed, explaining the why, how and what behind our endeavor. In short, 12 developers, the majority of the engineering team, left ownCloud because we believed a better solution was possible for users, customers and fellow contributors. We see a business as an important part of the open source ecosystem around a project. Its role is to act as a catalyst, enabling individuals and businesses to grow and participate. It is in the nature of open source that a company failing to play this role can be replaced, protecting customers from vendor lock-in.

Subsequent events, including Nextcloud becoming the most active open source file sync and share project backed by our healthy, profitable business and the hugely positive response to our Nextcloud 11 release, have proven us right. With Nextcloud 12, we've extended our technological lead and are charting new territory with Global Scale, a new architecture for near unlimited scalability. Nextcloud 13 continued our advantage over our competition with deeply integrated audio/video and chat communication and unique real time collaboration capabilities.
