We’re proud to introduce the Nextcloud Secure Sharing Outlook Add-in which enables Nextcloud customers to easily and securely sent files, folders or upload links to others from within Microsoft Outlook. The Add-in can replace attachments, automatically uploading files to Nextcloud and inserting a secure link in the email. It also makes it easy for users to provide others with a secure file upload link.
Keep data secure and optimize costs
Complementing our existing add-in for Calendar and Contacts synchronization with Outlook, the Nextcloud Secure Sharing Outlook Add-in takes away the IT headache caused by risky attachments. Storing and sharing files securely through Nextcloud ensures company policies on data availability, retention and safety can be enforced. This enables system administrators for example to make sure files are run through the virus scanner, certain file types are protected from being shared outside the company or retention policies are followed.
Another significant advantage for IT departments is the savings in storage space for email servers. The add-in negates the need for storing large amounts of attachments in multiple email boxes and decreases network traffic.
The Nextcloud Secure Sharing Outlook Add-in supports:
Picking local files and uploading them to Nextcloud
Providing a link where recipient can upload files to
Customization (via html) of the link insert code
Automatic or custom shared link password generation; optional expiry date.
The Nextcloud Secure Sharing Outlook Add-in works with Microsoft Outlook 2010, 2013 and 2016.
With at a price of USD 5 per user per year with possible volume discounts, the Secure Sharing Outlook Add-in is available to Nextcloud customers. More information can be found on our website.

As part of Schleswig-Holstein's state digitization strategy, the state chancellery has announced they will work with Nextcloud to develop AI for working with government documents.

The serious security flaws in ownCloud (now owned by Kiteworks) do NOT affect Nextcloud. We have strict security processes in place, and do not ship test data from libraries that can cause security breaches.
