Nextcloud partners up with Factor group
Nextcloud has a good possibility for integration into existing corporate infrastructure: from Active Directory to the Web Application Firewall. Because security is a quite big challenge, the possibility to publish Nextcloud behind WAF is very important.

How it started
Nextcloud has been appreciated as a perfect instrument that can help corporations make a good first step in the overall digitalization strategy in the coming years.
Factor group was in search of a platform for their own needs. They found Nextcloud as a suitable, flexible and freely distributed solution to organize a local platform for corporate information exchange and digital collaboration. When their customers started asking for on-premise solutions to organize secured cloud storage and digital collaboration, they were able to find information about Nextcloud on their own. After that a lot of articles about Nextcloud were written in Russian by satisfied customers. That’s how the idea about the partnership started!
A lot of articles and how-to guides on Nextcloud have been written and available in Russian. There is a strong Nextcloud community in Russia, CIS and former USSR countries. Factor group is also a part of this community and is taking the active role to popularize Nexcloud and expand the community.
We at Nextcloud are exited to welcome a new partner who shares our values on board!
