Nextcloud Hub v19, code name “home office”, represents a big step forward for remote collaboration in teams. This release brings document collaboration to video chats, introduces password-less login and improves performance.
As this is a major release, the changelog is too long to put here. Users can look at github milestones to find what has been merged. A quick overview of what is new:
- password-less authentication and many other security measures
- Talk 9 with built-in office document editing courtesy of Collabora, a grid view & more
- MUCH improved performance, Deck integration in Calendar, guest account groups and more!
Share and collaborate on documents, send and receive email, manage your calendar and have video chats without data leaks
As fully on-premises solution, Nextcloud Hub provides the benefits of online collaboration without the compliance and security risks.
Why self hosting?
You need 100% certainty
Sending around data by email or using public SaaS file sharing solutions does not provide much security for sensitive data. Encryption is complicated and cumbersome to use, reducing the real benefits due to employees working around them or making mistakes.
Keeping data on your own infrastructure or at a trusted local private or public cloud provider means you stay in control. Only then can you show your customers exactly where their sensitive documents are. Regulators can be certain that non-compliance with proper process is minimized.
SaaS is a risky solution
Most consumer-grade solutions like Dropbox or Office 365 were not designed with privacy regulations and security concerns in mind, mixing data from consumers and businesses, spread out in data centers across the globe. Enterprise IT workloads may be processed by Cloud Providers liable to the US CLOUD Act, meaning your business data can be leaked on orders of the US judicial system, often without disclosure to you.
Rather than trying to work around their limitations, Nextcloud provides a security-first solution which puts you in complete control over the location and access policies of data with a private cloud solution as well as a managed public cloud solution offered by local and trusted providers.
