What’s in a Name?

What’s in a name… specifically the OSOM name?

First, let’s start with the acronym itself. OSOM stands for “out of sight, out of mind,” and you pronounce it like the word “awesome”.

We’ve gone so far as to put a pronunciation on our web site to help the newbies.

OSOM
/awe-some/out of sight out of mind

adjective
         
extremely impressive or monumental; inspiring great admiration; focus on consumer data privacy
 
“Keeping my data truly private is OSOM!”

And while we believe our team and mission are incredibly OSOM, if you dig a little deeper you’ll find that OSOM is much more than a clever acronym.

It’s been written that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet (a tip of the hat to Shakespeare) but at OSOM, we would not be who we are without our name.

Our goal is to be recognized as the #1 privacy brand in the world, and when you see the OSOM brand, you should feel safe knowing that you Own Your Privacy. You should know that our technology is “out of sight, out of mind” and is working seamlessly for you without you having to worry about it; allowing you to concentrate on living life.

OSOM is an acronym, a brand, and the DNA behind our company’s belief that data privacy is your right and we’ll never scrape, own or monetize that which is yours.

So… what does OSOM mean? Obviously a hell of a lot, but at its core it’s about ensuring that each of us has access to the world, without the world having access to us.

And that’s pretty OSOM / awe-some!
