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 security-minded 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. User expectations around remote work and BYOD had grown. 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 the industry’s first Virtual Desktop Alternative (VDA). Venn’s patented LocalZone™ 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.

Our Work+Life Purpose

To help people thrive – to be at their best, every day.

We are technologists committed to a more human concept of how better lives get lived and better work gets done. We support every individual’s pursuit for a renewed sense of passion, potential, control and contentment.

We empower people with the tools they need and the trust they deserve to work at their own pace, in their own space. It’s about working hard and playing hard, not to simply survive the daily grind. It’s about thriving in body and mind and reaching one’s full potential.

Every day.
