You need 100% certainty
Sending around data by email or using public SaaS file sharing solutions does not provide much security for sensitive data. Encryption is complicated and cumbersome to use, reducing the real benefits due to employees working around them or making mistakes.

Keeping data on your own infrastructure or at a trusted local private or public cloud provider means you stay in control. Only then can you show your customers exactly where their sensitive documents are. Regulators can be certain that non-compliance with proper process is minimized.

SaaS is a risky solution
Most consumer-grade solutions like Dropbox or Office 365 were not designed with privacy regulations and security concerns in mind, mixing data from consumers and businesses, spread out in data centers across the globe. Enterprise IT workloads may be processed by Cloud Providers liable to the US CLOUD Act, meaning your business data can be leaked on orders of the US judicial system, often without disclosure to you.

Rather than trying to work around their limitations, Nextcloud provides a security-first solution which puts you in complete control over the location and access policies of data with a private cloud solution as well as a managed public cloud solution offered by local and trusted providers.

Get started

Powerful collaboration

Integrated groupware, chat and project management

Nextcloud features tightly integrated chat, project management, mail, calendaring and more. Chat messages can be directly transformed into tasks, task deadlines are visible in the Calendar and files can be attached to a task from the sharing dialog. A single platform means there is no need to juggle different accounts, keep track of where in the many cloud platforms the latest version of a document is floating around, or worry about security threats and invisible costs.

Efficient workflows

Common processes in organizations, like getting a document approved or turning it into a PDF, can be automated with Nextcloud Flow and Approval workflows. Thanks to integration of a number of document signing tools, requesting a formal signature on a PDF document like a contract or NDA can now be done directly from within Nextcloud.

Dashboard features

On the top-right of your Nextcloud window, a search glass shows search results from all over Nextcloud. Additional search providers can be installed and over a dozen different search providers are available to show you Github issues, Moodle courses, Jira tickets and more.

Unified search

Security first

We are deeply committed to protecting the safety of our customers’ data. We are confident that Nextcloud Files offers the best security in the self-hosted file sync and share industry, because:

Security in Nextcloud

Compliance-ready monitoring

Nextcloud enables admins to monitor the health and performance of a Nextcloud system with a graphical UI and an API endpoint for monitoring apps. Fully audit-ready logs of user activity are generated.

Tracking changes to user files

Nextcloud Files lets users track file modifications, downloads of shares and changes to comments or tags, providing an overview in the browser, clients or via email notifications and an RSS feed.

Monitoring and compliance

Accessibility

To ensure Nextcloud is accessible to users with visual impairments, Nextcloud has extensive keyboard accessibility and screen reader support.

The colors used in Nextcloud meet the WCAG 2.0 AA standard for contrast and we created themes for users who need even higher support. Our High Contrast theme aims for WCAG 2.0 AAA compliance, while a Dyslexia-friendly font option helps people with reading disability. A Dark theme is also available.

External storage, securely encrypted

The external storage feature of Nextcloud gives users access to their data wherever it is. Nextcloud Files can access data stored with a wide variety of popular cloud service providers such as Amazon, Google and Dropbox, but can also access file storage solutions using standard protocols such as NFS, (S)FTP, WebDAV and more.

The Encryption App can encrypt data at rest for both local and remote storage, protecting data stored on networks outside of user infrastructure. Keys can be handled by an external key management server or stored locally, on the server.

External storage

Integrated account management

Nextcloud features built-in account management with optional two-factor authentication as well as Single-sign-on support and integration with external user directories like LDAP or IMAP, SMB, FTP and more.

User management

User-defined group management

Users can define their own, custom groups, named Circles. These can be managed in various ways, including with invitations, through an open listing where users can join with or without an approval step, with designated sub-managers and so on.

Users can share with these groups the same way as administrator-defined Nextcloud groups. Users can add members of a circle to a conversation, share a folder to a circle, assign a task to a circle and so on.

Virtual Data Room

In settings where a firewall is needed between departments or organizations without impeding smooth and efficient collaboration, a separate Virtual Data Room can be set up. Nextcloud offers a wide range of unique features for VDR use and its on-premises nature offers unparalleled confidentiality and control.

Virtual data room features

Extend your cloud

You can extend the functionality of your Nextcloud with extra features from the Nextcloud app store. Among the more than 200 apps you can find features that enhance sharing, including:

  • Group folders allows admin-shared folders users can’t remove
  • Activities for shared file downloads so you can track who downloads your shared files
  • Easy sharing via email, Google+, Diaspora, Facebook and more social channels
Go to App Store

Nextcloud app: Collectives

Bringing knowledge management to Nextcloud, Collectives enables users to share a set of handbooks with each other. Collectives is closely tied with the custom group feature in Nextcloud and builds on Nextcloud Text, so it allows for collaborative editing of documents, showing author colors, versioning, cross-page links and more.

With Collectives, organizations can reduce the ‘bus factor’ by sharing knowledge in a way that fits a modern, paperless office and support asynchronous collaboration.
