About AnyDesk

Our story

Three tech pioneers sharing one vision

The AnyDesk story began in 2012 with three technology pioneers sharing one vision: to develop a high-speed and top-secure Remote Desktop Software that would eventually become one of the market-leading solutions. They put their vision into practice by creating a proprietary codec, DeskRT, that allows for virtually latency-free collaboration. Whether the user is down the hall, or on the other side of the world. With the support of a business angel investor, they were able to found the company AnyDesk Software GmbH in 2014.

Software excellence made in Germany

Today, AnyDesk Software has been downloaded over 500 million times and is used by companies and personal users across the entire globe. Since its foundation in 2014, AnyDesk has experienced an unique journey from a Start-up into a Scale-up. One major point that has not changed since 2014 is the shared passion for the product across all departments at AnyDesk.
