Pydio has announced the release of the first dedicated Enterprise Distribution of its open source file sharing and sync platform. Pydio Enterprise Distribution combines the open source Pydio Core project together with a more powerful administration and security console for enterprise users. The new distribution also features software packages for on-premise, private, or public cloud environments, along with options for enterprise support. The new Enterprise Distribution will be available as a free download for up to 10 users, as well as through Pydio’s free enterprise trial program.

Formerly known as the AjaXplorer Project, Pydio provides a unified platform that works cross platform on Windows, Mac, Linux, as well as on iOS and Android mobile devices. In contrast to online file sharing services, users retain full ownership and control of their own data.

Pydio Enterprise Distribution simplifies administration of a business user base, to unlock the power and scalability of the underlying Pydio Core functionality. Analytics combine with the new Pydio Widget Builder, allowing organizations to create customized dashboards, alerts, and reports. Uses include: automated security monitoring, internal auditing, and reporting on departmental usage.
