About Us

We put security in the hands of the makers.

Oso puts security in the hands of the makers, and we do this by delivering security as code.

Most security products weren't built for developers. But we believe that when you remove friction for developers, great things happen.

This is where we started.

Some companies are founded by teams who experienced a pain at a prior company and decided to build the product they always wanted. That's not us.

We're a mosaic of a team with different accents, text editors, language preferences, degrees and time zones. We have iterated on Oso hundreds of times over multiple years to get to where we are now. Through this experience, we have collectively developed the muscle to build a product driven by true developer demand.

Today we are helping developers add authorization to their applications. But we build Oso on a foundational technology – a policy engine and language – that sets us up to solve a much broader array of problems for developers in the future.
