Why We Built Pydio

We are pioneers inf the file-sharing space. AjaXplorer, Our first platform, was an open-source, web-based file sharing platform developed before Dropbox even existed. Pydio understood early on that many companies needed to share documents while maintaining full control over their data.

Across many industries, advanced security requirements, regulations, or compliance issues mean that SaaS file sharing isn’t a viable option.

Pydio bridges the gap between fast-evolving open-source software and enterprise-ready solutions, providing security-conscious organizations with a platform they can count on to share documents and collaborate securely.
