Keep costs in control

The add-in also helps IT departments save valuable storage space on email servers. By reducing the need to store large amounts of attachments in multiple email boxes, the add-in decreases network traffic and frees up server resources, leading to improved performance and efficiency.

How secure is Sendent for Outlook?

We are committed to keeping your data protected while allowing you to share files with ease. When it comes to data sharing, privacy-conscious organizations require privacy-centered solutions.

The Outlook add-in offers various ways to enhance the security of your data:

  • Secure file sharing: You can exchange data with clients and partners without compromising your security. Create a Public Share to allow collaborators to upload files and folders to your secure server.
  • Password protection for your emails: You can set Sendent to generate a unique strong password every time you share data through Microsoft Outlook. The stronger the passwords you use, the harder it is for hackers to crack them and gain access to your data.
  • Expiration dates for file access: When you’re working with people outside of your organization, you might want to limit their access to your server when your projects are complete. Control access to your data by putting an expiration date on all your shared files and links.
  • Withdrawing shared files: Accidentally sent a sensitive file to the wrong person? With Sendent, you can withdraw the data straight from Outlook to keep it secure.
  • Activity Tracker: If you host a lot of important files on your private server, you want to know who else has their hands on your data. You can check the Activity Tracker to verify if the file has already been accessed.

Feature highlights: Secure Mail and Guest Accounts

Secure Mail for guaranteed compliance

Elevate your email security with Sendent’s Secure Mail feature specifically designed for data-sensitive industries like banking, law, and healthcare.

Secure Mail allows users to protect their email content from interception by uploading the email and its attachments to their Nextcloud instance. No sensitive content is shared via the mail server. Additionally, they can password-protect the link for added security.

Guest Accounts for private sharing

With Guest Accounts, you can create a secure and private account for anyone who needs access to your data on a frequent base. This could be a client, a vendor, or a partner who requires access to specific files or emails. The recipient will receive an email invitation with a link to your Nextcloud instance where they can access the secure guest account that contains all earlier shared correspondence.

Guest accounts can be customized to suit your specific needs. You can set permissions for each guest account, allowing you to control what files and folders they can access. This ensures that sensitive information remains confidential and that you have complete control over who can view and download your data.

If a guest account has been set up for the recipient, the add-in will detect this and share the message directly to the guest account, including an internal link in the email notification. The recipient can then access the email by logging into their secure guest account.

Secure your mail with Sendent

Sharing and storing files via email can be a risky business, but with Sendent for Outlook, you can streamline your workflow and reduce the IT headaches caused by risky email attachments. By using Nextcloud to store and share files securely, companies can enforce data availability, retention, and safety policies to ensure that sensitive information remains protected.

Why use Sendent Outlook add-in:

  • Boost productivity with a user-friendly interface
  • Enjoy a fully integrated solution with key Nextcloud settings
  • Benefit from centralized control for administrators
  • Protect your email content and attachments with Secure Mail
  • Customize email templates to your liking

Theming versus Branding

In Nextcloud, theming and branding are distinct yet complementary features that enhance user experience and your corporate identity. While often used interchangeably, they serve unique functions.

Theming

Nextcloud Hub’s built-in theming app is the recommended approach for customizing the look and feel of your server’s interface. This app ensures compatibility with Web User Interface changes and allows for easy customizations. You can adjust visual elements like the logo, color scheme, organization’s name, and essential URLs such as privacy policies and imprints. The Web User Interface also allows tailoring the color and logos in various emails sent by Nextcloud (e.g., share information, activities, welcome emails).

Theming is all about giving a personalized touch to your Nextcloud server, aligning it visually with your organization’s aesthetic and ensuring a cohesive brand experience across all user touchpoints.

Branding

Going a step further, Nextcloud’s branding capabilities offer a deeper level of customization. Branding involves incorporating custom visual assets like logos and icons into the client interface, creating a custom help page, and implementing pre-configured settings for seamless integration within your organization. This ensures that when users access Nextcloud, they are immediately met with an interface that reflects your organization’s identity, bypassing the need to select a server and entering login credentials directly.

Branded clients replace the standard Nextcloud logo and name in the app drawer with your organization’s branding, offering a more tailored experience.

Overall, branding in Nextcloud extends beyond the visual appeal, providing an experience that feels like an integral part of your organization. It supports a wide range of platforms including Android, iOS and desktop environments like Linux, Mac and Windows.

Available as part of our Standard and Premium subscriptions, branding elevates the user experience to a level where Nextcloud Hub not only functions but also feels like an extension of your organization’s corporate style.

Deployment and device management

Nextcloud simplifies the deployment process for desktop and mobile platforms, offering robust solutions tailored to organizational needs.

For desktops, we utilize the Microsoft Windows Installer (MSI), providing branded desktop client packages that facilitate deployment across large-scale environments.

Nextcloud extends its capabilities to mobile platforms through comprehensive Mobile Device Management (MDM) support. This enables management and deployment of mobile applications.

All these deployment technologies are available through our subscription plans. This ensures that organizations of all sizes have access to the tools they need for efficient deployment and management of Nextcloud branding services.

Data Privacy Week: Who owns your data? — Nextcloud

Here at Nextcloud we love reasons to celebrate data privacy, to continue exploring and improving our privacy goals. Respecting privacy is a deep aspect of our company and community culture, our shared mission, and a concept we interact with daily. With Data Privacy Week in full swing, we’re excited to be part of the conversation — and part of the solution — in regaining and maintaining privacy of your personal and corporate data.

We encourage you this week to be introspective, to re-evaluate your current privacy landscape, and to explore steps you can take to regain aspects of your data privacy. And in case you’re already a privacy advocate, we encourage you to help guide others to a more private digital lifestyle!

Who owns your…

If you’ve met us at conferences and corporate events around the world, you may have seen our swag with memorable nudging queries:

Who owns your
?

We encourage you to ask yourself regularly: Where is your contact book stored, and who has access to that data? What about your calendar, or your email? Medical data? Your location?

And with everyday technology’s every-evolving pace, we can also begin to ask: Who owns your AI prompts? Your intellectual property and corporate secrets? What of your home surveillance videos? Your Bitcoin wallet?

We’re proud that together with our open source community we’ve built the industry’s leading privacy-respecting online collaboration platform as recommended everywhere. PrivacyTools.io highlights Nextcloud in their list of “Top 10 Privacy Tools” and “Best Encrypted Cloud Storage in 2024“. PrivacyGuides.org features Nextcloud at the top of many categories from Productivity Tools and Collaboration Platforms, to File Sync.

Think Dropbox, Google Drive, or iCloud, except that you have complete control over where and how your files are stored.

At a time when people are questioning democracy, we want to publicly state our support for democratic values, diversity, openness, and fairness. The recent events in Potsdam, which remind us of a difficult time in Germany’s past, make us even more determined to encourage public participation and conversations to protect democracy.

Our commitment to democratic values

Nextcloud is committed to democracy, pluralism, and a humane society, actively supporting public sector stakeholders to strengthen democratic institutions. We believe that addressing the underlying issues inherent in fascist ideologies requires meaningful engagement and constructive dialogue. We champion the cause of peaceful, respectful coexistence, and oppose any form of exclusion or racism.

The significance of diversity and inclusion

At Nextcloud, diversity is not just a reality but a valued asset. Our commitment to inclusivity is in line with the values championed by the demonstrators. Our diverse team, representing over 22 countries, collaborates as a community that embodies a global perspective reinforcing our support for the demonstrations against exclusionary and undemocratic ideologies. We stand in solidarity with those opposing the AfD, sharing their dedication to protecting democracy and combating hatred.

Looking forward

We urge other major players in the tech industry to break their silence and join us in taking a clear stance against exclusionary ideologies. Such a stand is not only vital for the health of German and European economies but also for our society as a whole. Let´s stand together for a brighter tomorrow: Nextcloud calls on you – our partners, customers, and the tech community at large! Together, we can build a society that values openness, respect, and diversity. Every action, no matter its size, plays a crucial role in this journey. Let’s make a lasting difference in the world.
