With the much-hyped release of Nextcloud 13, will come a new official client app for mobile and desktop syncing of files and folders that includes built-in end-to-end encryption. That’s a huge step forward for companies looking for an in-house cloud solution that offers such security measures.
Although the official release isn’t ready for public usage, I was privy to an unofficial release candidate, so I could illustrate how the end-to-end encryption works in the desktop client. As you might expect, this is pre-release, so it’s buggy. Even so, it shows serious promise and should offer a glimpse into a new feature that will make a Nextcloud in-house cloud server a no brainer for businesses.
