To help organizations safely empower their people to work better, and live better.
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.
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.
David Matalon is the CEO and Co-founder of Venn, maker of LocalZone, the secure workspace for remote work that isolates and protects work from anything personal on the same computer. David is a successful serial entrepreneur, who started his first business when he was 13 years-old, teaching family and neighbors how to use Microsoft Word and Intuit. After college, he and a friend started Offyx, one of the original Application Service Providers. Later, he founded OS33, developers of a unique secure unified workspace that became very successful with leading financial services firms. With Venn, David leads a team committed to solving the unique computing challenges faced by companies and employees in today's increasingly remote-first world. David has built a unique culture that emphasizes how people can thrive with a healthy work+life. A native New Yorker, David earned his undergraduate degree from NYU’s Stern School of Business and has a Master’s Degree from Columbia University. He and his wife are raising their four children in their home town of Great Neck, New York.
