The Nextcloud Secure Sharing Outlook Add-in enables Nextcloud customers to easily and securely send 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.
The 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 attachments 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 lets you pick local files and upload them to Nextcloud. It can provide a link where the recipient of the email can upload files to and enables customization (via html) of the inserted information. Admins can optionally enforce passwords which can be custom or auto-generated. A default expiration date can also be set.
In addition, the Add-in supports branding and high DPI resolution. Multi Language support is also available.
New users can enjoy user-friendly setup dialog to get going, and the Upload Files / Share Public Folder option is directly available in the ‘message’ tab "
The plugin works with Microsoft Outlook 2010, 2013 and 2016.
Pricing for the Nextcloud Secure Sharing Outlook Add-in starts at USD 5 per user per year with discounts for larger user numbers. It is currently only available as part of a Nextcloud Support Subscription.
