kDrive incorporates an office suite used by over 7 million people to collaborate online on Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents. Over 200 people help it develop with new functions designed to meet corporate needs. As a partner of this open source project, Infomaniak directly supports its development and incorporates the office suite into kSuite.

The office suite offers what Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace could never offer: independence vis-à-vis a product, a supplier, legislative restrictions or a sector of activity. It can easily be combined with other services and its functions can be extended or complemented at will. Sergey Linnik, Head Integrations Developer at OnlyOffice

The independent alternative to Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace for online collaboration

Used in particular by Deloitte, Oracle, Yamaha and UNESCO, the office suite incorporated into kDrive allows companies to centralise the management of their documents and to collaborate online in a secure environment:

  • Joint online editing of Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents in real time.
  • Reference and notification by user email in the comments of a document.
  • Advanced management of access rights: full access, read only, comment, download restriction, right to delete, etc.
  • Strict control of resources shared outside an organisation.

With the Custom Brand option (formerly My kSuite), companies can customise kDrive with their domain name (kdrive.your-domain.tld), their logo and their colours.

A secure collaborative storage service to share your files

Controlling shared resources is a challenge for any organisation, because they must:

  • Collaborate in teams, both internal and external
  • Share all types of document quickly
  • Be able to manage user rights in detail without granting access that is too broad
  • Know who has access to what
  • Manage staff flows (recruitments, dismissals, temporary missions, etc.)

“kDrive allow each user to collaborate and share independent of the platform used, making them a solution that can be deployed quickly within organisations of any size” Adrien Pedrina, Custom Support Manager at Infomaniak

The architecture of kDrive is designed to facilitate team work and management of the files on which you’re collaborating:

  • The “Common documents” folder enables you to create common folders for teams and/or departments within your organisation.
  • The “Shared” folder contains files and folders shared between users in your organisation.
  • The “External shares” folder contains the elements shared by external users of outside your kDrive.
  • The “Drop boxes” make it possible to create folders with a sharing link in order to ask for and receive files in complete security.

A 100% Swiss solution that’s privacy-friendly

With kDrive, documents opened are processed from end to end in Switzerland in the Infomaniak infrastructure. If you are working without an Internet connection, you can download the office suite in order to modify your documents locally. As soon as you are connected, the modifications are automatically synchronized on kDrive and all your devices.

To ensure data sovereignty and the strict respect of your privacy, kDrive is hosted in Switzerland in our infrastructures, entirely developed by our teams. The data and metadata of each kDrive are compartmentalised and without the explicit authorisation of a user, a member of the support staff or our own staff does not have the possibility of accessing the data, likewise for our AI developed 100% in-house. Christophe Borcard, Developer Team Leader kDrive
