About this project
Venux introduces a revolutionary keyless security system where databases are not used and passwords are never stored. Your credentials are only stored in your mind. We guarantee with 100% certainty that data encrypted with Venux is inaccessible to hackers, spies, and all other unwanted surveillance. Our goal is to provide users with the privacy they deserve using user-friendly software. We do not store your personal data to achieve maximum security.
Venux Files is a universal file management system that is easy to use, secure, and provides access to many cloud-based services such as DropBox and iCloud. Venux Files provides users with a convenient way to store, access, and manage files securely from any location. Anything encrypted with Venux will only be visible to the account used during the encryption process.
Venux Connect is a communication tool designed to provide secure communication for you and your contacts through video call, audio call, and chat. The application simplifies the process of sharing files and screen sharing. You can easily manage your business or keep in touch with your contacts.
- Group video calls
- Group screen sharing
- Digital contact signing
Venux Multimedia Engine is a universal media player and rendering engine that covers most codecs. If you’re looking for a single program that can open and play images, videos, audio, vector, 3D, and medical imaging formats, Venux Multimedia Engine is what you need. Not only can you play nearly all formats, you can also edit and convert multimedia files. Use it for photo editing, to trim video clips, and to add filters to your audio. MME lets you stream audio and video from other places like ShoutCast and YouTube directly inside Multimedia Engine.
Every product is completely free to use with some paid add-on features.
All Venux programs allow you to securely share files with your Venux contacts. You can securely store your data locally and on your favorite cloud-based services.
- Remote services
- Remote desktop (Connect, Files)
More add-ons are in development and will be available in the future.
Venux Files, Connect, and MME will be supported on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS, and Windows Phone.
Venux programs will be released for Windows and Mac on the first release.
The current supported protocols are FTP, Amazon, Azure, Box.net, WebDAV, DropBox, EDI, Google Drive, iCloud, SFTP, SkyDrive, SSH, and Yandex. More services will be available in the future.
All Prepaid Encryption Plans are non-expiring.
An encryption plan is required for encrypting and sharing encrypted data. Viewing and decrypting data is free.
How Do Prepaid Encryption Plans Work?
Whenever you'd like to encrypt or share encrypted files, the size of the encrypted data will be deducted from your encryption plan. Everyone receives 2GB for free. Say you have 10GB of encryption and want to encrypt a 500MB size file. After encryption, you will have 9.5GB left to encrypt other data.
All encrypted files are displayed in their decrypted form automatically through Venux software and can be viewed anytime. You must decrypt encrypted data to be able to view it without Venux software. Again, viewing and decrypting does not affect the amount of encryption you have left.
There are several more projects in development, such as a web browser that allows secure and anonymous browsing, an operating system that is completely secure and fully customizeable for business and personal use, and mobile versions of Venux Files, MME, and Connect. The goal is to design a new generation platform for the 21st century. A system that is completely standards compliant for the new emerging Web 3.0 as well as algorithmically based under the hood that works “out-of-the-box” in any environment without configuration.
We will use the funds to continue development, release the software to the general public, and to gain public awareness.

Risks and challenges
As with any software, one of the biggest issues is software bugs. Our quality assurance department constantly tests our products on different platforms to provide the best user experience.
We have been developing our software for several years. Our developers have experience designing security systems for banking and monetary transactions.
We have working beta versions of our products. We have filed for a patent for our H.I.P.S.™ principle and received a trademark for the Venux name and logo in 2013.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
