OwnCloud’s new encryption framework gives enterprises more flexibility
It’s no secret that security has been a tripping point for enterprises considering cloud storage, but OwnCloud on Tuesday took a fresh step toward alleviating such concerns with the addition of a new encryption framework.
OwnCloud’s file, sync and share service offers an open-source and self-hosted alternative to platforms such as Box and Dropbox that’s designed specifically to allow companies to retain control of their data.
Now, Encryption 2.0 gives users the ability to manage their own encryption keys in their enterprise key store. It also allows them to adopt the encryption standard of their choice and write a server app to meet their company’s unique encryption requirements.
