Webinar will demonstrate how to use your internal servers, storage as well as security and governance policies, to create a secure enterprise file sync and share service

Lexington, MA – March 11, 2013 — / — ownCloud Inc., the company behind the world’s most popular open source file sync and share software, wants to help companies secure sensitive corporate data, announcing its first Webinar to help corporate IT departments solve their “Dropbox Problem.”

According to recent research, 40-75% of employees are using Dropbox to share files inside and outside of their businesses. Half of those Dropbox users do this even though they know it’s against the rules. More than 40% of businesses have experienced the exposure of confidential information and the estimated average cost of a data breach equaled $5.5 Million in 2011.

These files, containing sensitive company and customer data, are stored in a public cloud outside of the businesses’ control – possibly even outside of the country. The potential for data leakage and security breaches is enormous and companies need to stay compliant with their own policies and procedures for security and governance.

Come hear ownCloud CTO and founder Frank Karlitschek walk through the “Dropbox” problem, and demonstrate how to easily solve this problem with ownCloud. Unlike Dropbox, and other consumer-grade file sync and share apps (Box, Google Drive and others), which store data in the cloud in remote, third-party data centers, ownCloud is deployed on-premise, integrating with existing security, storage, monitoring and reporting tools. With more than 750,000 users worldwide, ownCloud offers the ease-of-use, flexibility, sophistication and security not available from basic syncing apps and third-party storage.

What: Solving the “Dropbox” Problem Webinar
Date and time: Tuesday, March 19, 2013 11:00 am ET
Who: Frank Karlitschek, ownCloud CTO
Duration: 1 hour
