Working with ownCloud is great,
but how do keep your data in your control?

Losing control of your content

ownCloud is a great open source Enterprise content management system, but when you use the web client you download your content to your local devices. Your content might be downloaded on various devices. If you download a file multiple times, you storemultiple versions on your devices (filename.docx, filename-2.docx, filename-3.docx, etc.).

In short: you lose control of your data. An unwanted situation, especially when it concerns company vital and privacy sensitive information.

Increased risk of data leakage

But above all it increases the risk of data leakage. Files downloaded on your local device can be lost or viewed by persons who are not authorized to view them.

These files are not encrypted and can be easily transferred to others. Control on those files are completely lost.

Working with wrong versions

Besides security, not having the right information can be very annoying and frustrating. Let's face it. Often we download files on our local device, work with them and create new versions. But then we forget to upload them back to the server.

Result: the latest version is not on the server, so you and your team members are working with the wrong version. Making decisions based on wrong or non-complete information can have a serious impact on your business.

File synchronization slows down devices

Experienced the unexpected and very unwanted situation that your SSD-hard disk of your laptop runs full? This can happen as someone uploaded a vast amount of content on the server that 'thanks' to file synchronization were synced on your laptop.

Result: a slow, unresponsive laptop.

“WorkAIR by default does NOT synchronize your files. Only when you want to have a folder offline it will synchronize that folder, otherwise all your content remains in your ownCloud server.”

Open & save your Office 2013/2016 files directly to your ownCloud

Create and open an Office file in WorkAIR and your Word, Excel or PowerPoint will start. You can start editing that file on your computer. Once saved, it will be uploaded directly to your ownCloud private cloud. Multiple saves create multiple versions in ownCloud.

Losing the internet connection will not lose your unsaved work. It will be cached on your computer. Close the Office application and the file will be deleted from your cache automatically.

Offline access with Offline Folders.

By default all your content in WorkAIR is stored securely on your ownCloud server and never leaves it. But sometimes you need offline access.

You make specific folders available offline with Offline Folders. The files in that folder (not the subfolders!) will be synchronized locally. But these files will be stored encrypted and when they are 'cleared offline' they will be deleted.

Protect your 'travelling' content with passwords and time limits

Sometimes you need to share files with external parties that do not have an account on your ownCloud server. Those files become 'travelling' content as they will travel outside the secure area of your Nextcloud.

Protect these 'travellers' with shared links with passwords and time limits. Send passwords via text messages to the receiver and reduce considerably the risk your content might face, should your e-mails be hacked..

"Want your own logo on WorkAIR? Or the one of your client?
That is possible. You can do this yourself very easily."
