ownCloud 6 Enterprise Edition offers flexibility and control of business data with fully on-premises integration and hybrid storage options
LEXINGTON MA – March 11, 2014 – /BackupReview.info/ – ownCloud, Inc., the company behind the only fully self-hosted enterprise-ready file sync and share software, today released ownCloud 6 Enterprise Edition, giving IT administrators even more control over sensitive company data.
The latest ownCloud Enterprise Edition includes the first and only sophisticated file access rules engine to enhance control and govern access to files, enabling IT administrators to set sophisticated rules for user and device connections to the ownCloud server, preventing access if those rules are, or are not, met.
“As more companies see their sensitive corporate data escaping to the public cloud via consumer-grade apps, those in highly regulated industries like financial services, healthcare, government and education and research, need to look closely at how they can leverage their current data protection and governance tools to ensure they do not run afoul of regulatory requirements,” said Terri McClure, senior analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG).
ownCloud Enterprise Edition — based on ownCloud Community Edition, the world’s most popular open source file sync and share project, with more than 1.3 million users — is deployed fully on premises, enabling integration into existing user management tools, governance processes, and security, monitoring, and back-up tools. ownCloud can also leverage nearly all on site storage, and can be deployed with cloud storage as well — such as Amazon (S3) and OpenStack (SWIFT) – to create a centrally controlled hybrid deployment model.
CERN on ownCloud
“Our pilot service with ownCloud meets the users’ requirements for platform integration, usability and ease of access,” said Dr. Jakub T. Moscicki, IT Data Storage Services, CERN. “Therefore we are currently scaling up the pilot service to expose it to a larger user community. The open source aspect of ownCloud is the key element for future integration and extension in our environment. We see a potential for the ownCloud platform to evolve from a system focused on handling document files into a system for handling scientific datasets on a larger scale. We are looking forward to testing new functions and improving performance in ownCloud 6.”
ownCloud 6 Enterprise extends ownCloud’s core integration capabilities in three tiers: storage, security and application integration. The storage tier extends existing out-of-the-box integrations, including a new connection to Jive, the enterprise social collaboration product. The result is enterprise-class file sharing and collaboration capabilities from anywhere, on any device.
ownCloud’s highly extensible security infrastructure tier now provides SAML authentication to enable organizations to drop ownCloud into existing enterprise environments and authenticate with established identity providers, something only an on-premises installation can do. The application integration tier provides new file sharing and mobile APIs (recently released as open source) on top of existing provisioning and application plug-in APIs, making it easier for businesses and app developers to leverage ownCloud file storage capabilities.

“Many organizations (especially those in highly regulated industries) are turning to ownCloud to control and protect their data – and ensure they can leverage existing governance and security systems,” said Markus Rex, founder and CEO of ownCloud, Inc. “Only ownCloud provides IT the ability to fully integrate with existing (and future) data protection tools, the flexibility to choose the type of storage that suits their needs, while at the same time providing end users with a productivity tool they will actually use.”
