thank you pexels
We’re proud to introduce the Nextcloud Secure Sharing Outlook Add-in which enables Nextcloud customers to easily and securely sent files, folders or upload links to others from within Microsoft Outlook. The Add-in can replace attachments, automatically uploading files to Nextcloud and inserting a secure link in the email. It also makes it easy for users to provide others with a secure file upload link.

Keep data secure and optimize costs

Complementing our existing add-in for Calendar and Contacts synchronization with Outlook, the Nextcloud Secure Sharing Outlook Add-in takes away the IT headache caused by risky attachments. Storing and sharing files securely through Nextcloud ensures company policies on data availability, retention and safety can be enforced. This enables system administrators for example to make sure files are run through the virus scanner, certain file types are protected from being shared outside the company or retention policies are followed.

Another significant advantage for IT departments is the savings in storage space for email servers. The add-in negates the need for storing large amounts of attachments in multiple email boxes and decreases network traffic.
