Our Mission

Our Story

Venn was born out of a need to redefine how people work and live. Founded in 2002 as OS33, the company has served hundreds of regulated and securityminded firms, balancing productivity, protection and privacy for tens of thousands of users. We’re a globally recognized SaaS company delivering cutting-edge security and compliance software.
In 2021, the company recognized a new imperative to evolve. Regulatory requirements were more extensive than ever. New
cybersecurity threats and challenges were emerging every day.
Legacy VDI solutions failed to solve for these new realities.

It Was Time for a New Approach

Building on two decades of trust and technological 
innovation, OS33 rebranded as Venn and 
introduced a new approach to securing remote work on any computer. Venn provides companies with a radically simplified and less costly solution that virtual desktops or having to lock down every PC. Venn’s patented technology creates a smart, secure perimeter around SaaS applications and data, enabling users to work locally with sensitive information and ensure employee privacy by separating work from personal computing activities on the same device.
