Portknox Nextcloud App
We want to make it as easy as possible for our customers to manage their Portknox subscription. To do this, we don't want to create another portal with an extra login, but rather have developed a Nextcloud app that you can use to manage your address, subscription, addons and also your invoices. Conveniently within your own Nextcloud.
Correctly configured - Granted
If your Portknox Cloud shows you "security or setup warnings" and we can't fix them within 30 days, you'll get your Cloud for free for a year.
