Simplifying the long tail of software development

Our vision is to remove the overhead and complexity from the “long tail” of software and operational problems that people run into every day.

Most teams build systems that don't ever need to be Internet scale. We founded Tailscale in early 2019 to build tools to help make these systems faster, easier, and more secure.
