Studies and surveys

Risks of an uncontrolled SaaS strategy

Quote - Seventy-five percent of companies (…) rely on email for file sharing and collaboration, while more than half use FTP sites.

Seventy-five percent of companies (…) rely on email for file sharing and collaboration, while more than half use FTP sites.

A recent Forrester report notes that unsecured and uncontrolled sharing of data opens the door to loss of version control, auditability, and control over innovative IP, creating business and legal risks.

Considering all the risks, it is not surprising to see 70% of enterprises move their core SaaS applications back on-premises. Forrester urges senior corporate management and IT professionals to shift away from ad-hoc solutions like email, outdated technologies like FTP or customer-grade file sync and share like Dropbox or Google Drive.

Why care about
your file sharing channels

Forrester’s study shows, over a half of the teams use personal tools to share code, patches and other intellectual property within the organization as well as with customers. These solutions neither protect intellectual property nor competitive advantage, and also offer little control or rights management, nor audit and tracking controls.


Key solution requirements identified by Forrester:

Enterprise-grade security, with governance and policies to protect valuable content and code

Ease of use, working in familiar apps such as email to avoid disruption and adoption challenges

Integration APIs for the engineering, support desk, and other essentials

Through Global Scale, it is possible to host multiple separate Nextcloud servers to ensure data locality rules are while inter-server sharing and encryption of unsafe storage ensure data is both safe and seamlessly accessible at all times.

Ten issues with data silos

Employees in modern organizations use tens, sometimes dozens different online services for tracking tasks, tickets, managing blogs, updating documentation, editing files, communicating with partners and more. But this outgrowth of IT services complicates work and multiplies the risk of data leaks.


Simple and agile collaboration platform

Gartner typically calls solutions in this space Enterprise File Sync and Share or EFSS. In the last years, the market has been moving on to providing a next generation EFSS, called Content Collaboration Platform, integrating online document editing, communication and planning capabilities complementing the file exchange technologies.

Nextcloud is a leading vendor in this new space, offering these capabilities with Nextcloud Groupware and Nextcloud Talk, delivering seamless communication features integrated in Files. Users can attach a note to shares, comment on files, open a chat or even start a call directly, connecting files to these conversations to keep track of it all. Integrated email and calendaring connect projects and teams to the files they work with, and with Deck, Nextcloud provides a kanban board app which works together with all those.

Benefits of a secure file sharing


Designed for the real world

Users can access data on a FTP drive shared with another company; while data stored on an external object storage could be encrypted using server-side encryption so the storage provider has no way to compromise their security.

Meanwhile, files from the HR department are always enforced to be end-to-end encrypted on their clients, protecting their files from even the worst case of a full server breach.

In the back-end, IT can use a mix of local NFS or SharePoint storage, public S3 compatible storage and even blockchain technology to find the perfect mix between performance, reliability, security and cost.

The layered approach to security makes sure users have the maximum amount of productivity in their web interface while making sure sensitive data receives the ultimate protection, client-to-client. Keeping it all in a single solution simplifies management and avoids mistakes from users or IT departments that might cause costly data leaks.

Frequently asked questions

What is a secure file exchange platform?

A secure file exchange platform is a digital solution designed to facilitate the safe and encrypted transfer of files between users or organizations. It employs various security measures to protect data during transit and storage, ensuring confidentiality, integrity, and availability.

What distinguishes an enterprise file sync and share platform from other solutions?

An enterprise file sync and share platform, often abbreviated as EFSS, is specifically tailored to meet the collaborative needs of large organizations. It enables seamless synchronization and sharing of files across multiple devices while offering enterprise-grade security features, centralized administration, and compliance controls.

Why should businesses consider self-hosting their sync and share solutions?

Self-hosting sync and share solutions provide businesses with greater security and control over their data. By hosting the platform on their own infrastructure, organizations can ensure compliance with internal policies and regulatory requirements, minimize the risk of data breaches, and tailor the solution to their specific needs.

What security features should I look for in a secure self-hosted file access solution?

When evaluating secure self-hosted file access solutions, it’s crucial to prioritize features such as end-to-end encryption, multi-factor authentication, access controls, audit trails, and regular security updates. These features help safeguard sensitive data and mitigate the risk of unauthorized access or data leakage.

How does a self-hosted file access solution enhance security and control compared to cloud-based alternatives?

Unlike cloud-based alternatives, self-hosted file access solutions enable organizations to retain full control over their data by hosting it on-premises or in a private cloud environment. This level of control allows businesses to enforce strict security policies, customize configurations, and protect sensitive information from third-party access.

What measures should organizations take to ensure the security of their sync and share platforms?

To ensure the security of sync and share platforms, organizations should implement a comprehensive security strategy that includes regular risk assessments, employee training on data handling best practices, encryption of data both in transit and at rest, robust access controls, and proactive monitoring for suspicious activity. Additionally, staying updated with security patches and compliance standards is essential to maintaining a secure environment.
