Latest ownCloud webinar gives enterprise IT the tools get back control of their data

Lexington, MA – May 7, 2013 – / — In the fourth of a series of informational webinars ownCloud Inc., the company behind the world’s most popular open source file sync and share software, announced: How-to webinar: Integrate ownCloud with Active Directory and LDAP.

Businesses struggling with the insecurity and uncertainties of consumer-grade sync and share apps like Dropbox, can instead leverage authentication tools they already have to identify, track and control data usage. Come hear from ownCloud experts how businesses can easily configure ownCloud out of the box to integrate with your existing enterprise directory using our plug-in application. Learn how to connect to multiple directory servers, set filters, pull users, and populate group memberships, display names, quota and more, while still designating administrator and group administrator accounts.

Topics covered:

  • Enabling the Active Directory / LDAP Application Plug-in
  • Connecting to Directory Servers
  • Creating Filters and Populating Users
  • Setting Groups, Display Names, Quota and Email

Come to learn how to quickly and easily get ownCloud up and running, integrated into your environment, and deployed on your server behind your firewall. Leave knowing how to provide end users the consumer-grade file sync and share they expect, while giving IT back control of sensitive corporate data.

ownCloud is fully on-premise file sync and share software that integrates into existing user directories, governance processes, security, monitoring, storage and back-up tools — becoming part of the existing infrastructure. And because ownCloud is open source and open by nature, plug-in apps extend ownCloud out of the box, enabling file versioning, file sharing, external file system mounts and much more. If additional applications or capabilities are needed, enterprises can easily extend ownCloud via an enhanced application plug-in architecture, and add it to their ownCloud server. With more than 850,000 users worldwide, ownCloud offers the ease-of-use, flexibility, sophistication and security not available from basic syncing apps and third-party storage.
