ownCloud solutions can be deployed on premise and on private cloud infrastructure to allow government and public sector organizations to have direct control over the data environment, ensuring to ensure data availability and access only to authorized parties. The solution integrates with the existing directory, security, and rights management systems, enabling enforcement of data governance policies end-to-end. This would also preserve data within the organization and empowers IT department to manage proprietary information and business risk; leveraging existing data management, security and governance tools and processes. “ownCloud employs single sign-on through Secure Assertion Markup Language (SAML) and flexible logging features to provide auditors with detailed visibility into all data access activities,” Markus Rex, CEO and Co-Founder, ownCloud.
The firm’s solutions also help government agency and department managers to review proposals, research reports and contracts while they are offsite or on mobile through ownCloud’s mobile applications to offer secure mobile file sharing.

The numerous success stories of ownCloud stand as a testament of its efficiency in delivering secure solutions in the FSS arena. Once, Consortium GARR, an Italian telecommunication network for University and Research which provides high-performance connectivity and advanced services to the scientific and academic community approached the firm to address its impediments. The University has a rich history of supporting medical research that includes a sophisticated authentication model using federated identity and its researchers are often on the move – collaborating with peers, seeing patients or teaching classes. This way the researchers in the organization needed to access to files from any device and also required a tool that assured privacy and security when dealing with healthcare related data. Joining hands with ownCloud, the customer could rapidly integrate the solutions to their existing authentication system thereby leveraging their privacy and security infrastructure as well as reducing administrative burden and deploying the file-sharing solution.
The company released its latest version of solution- ownCloud 9.0 which offer improved collaboration, scalability and integration. The new release includes full federation, letting users on different servers share directories and files.
