Automate. Accelerate. Connect.

Cells Flows is our powerful, no-code scripting engine that lets you automate time-consuming and time-sensitive processes and connect with third-party platforms to create complex workflows.

Choose from off-the-shelf templates, customize those templates, or build your own workflows from scratch. With Cells Flows, you can customize Pydio to your organization's needs.

One Platform for All Your Document Needs

Are you supporting a complicated web of platforms just to deal with your documents? Cells was designed as a self-hosted document sharing and collaboration platform.

Pydio Cells gives you full control of your documents and files – combining fast performance, huge file transfer sizes, granular security, and advanced workflow automations in a single, powerful platform.

Remote Is the New Normal

Pydio helped us solve many regulatory compliance issues. We needed a fast-to-deploy on-premise solution to allow auditable file exchanges with our customers and Pydio really fits the bill. Pydio's premium remote support was the cherry on the cake.

Dimitri R - Security & System administrator at major Insurance company

We've been using Pydio for years now and the platform has always met our needs for end user experience and advanced security. Today we have more than 10 Pydio instances and they are at the heart of our customer data exchanges. Moreover, GDPR has strengthened our desire to control our data and Pydio responds very well to this need.

Jeremy Godefroy - Deputy IT Manager at Inter Public Group

We’ve been using Pydio Cells at CY Cergy Paris Université as a sovereign solution for our research staff since early 2019. Following the increased need for collaboration during the Covid19 crisis, we opened the tool to all university staff. It meets our needs very well and is easy to learn. The granular access management via the 'Cells' concept is very flexible and efficient.

Why Upgrade: Single Sign-On and Advanced IAM
Free is great. You’ll get no argument from us. And, despite being free, Cells Home Edition is a very capable sharing and collaboration platform. But if you need SSO and advanced identity and access management (IAM), maybe it's time to upgrade!
