Maximum security at all times - without hidden fees
Tresorit is ultra-secure by default. There's no add-on you need to pay extra for, no separate charges – all the work you do in Tresorit is protected by our patented end-to-end encryption technology.
When you're using Tresorit, your content is protected by our zero-knowledge end-to-end encryption by default, which means that no matter what you do, your files are as safe as they can be.
ownCloud offers end-to-end encryption for their Enterprise customers through a plugin and is only available for self-hosted implementations. This can mean a massive amount of extra cost for a large organization.
With Tresorit, there are no hidden fees. You don't have to deal with hosting and financing your own servers, and our client-side end-to-end encryption is included for every single one of our users. Tresorit offers three business plans for different business needs - no matter which plan fits you best, you can choose to be billed monthly or yearly.
At first glance, ownCloud might seem like a cheaper solution, but there are further costs to consider. If you choose to self-host ownCloud, you'll have to pay for your servers, which is no cheap feat. And in the case of enterprise packages, you only have a yearly payment option, which can be a burden in case you need to modify the number of licenses after a few months of use. In addition, ownCloud offers many features - for example, end-to-end encryption - as add-ons for an extra price.
With Tresorit, creating secure, shared links only takes a few clicks. You also have a long list of security options available: you can set up passwords or expiry dates for links, disable downloads entirely, apply a watermark, and much more. If anything goes wrong, you can revoke the link immediately.
With ownCloud, sharing files securely is more limited. Only password protection and expiry dates are available for sharing links. Secure view is only available through a Collabora integration, and federated file sharing works only if your recipient also uses ownCloud.
While Tresorit doesn't offer real-time collaboration - that would mean breaking end-to-end encryption - we give you tools to help you get work done as securely as possible. Editing badges help you avoid conflict files, and file versioning ensures that no data is lost. Our Outlook and Gmail integrations and upcoming email encryption features support smooth collaboration and facilitate remote work.
ownCloud offers real-time collaboration when you integrate with O365, Collabora, or OpenOffice. However, this feature is only available when end-to-end encryption is not enabled, meaning your work will be at risk.
