As CRM giant expands into famed technology hub at 50 Fremont Street in San Francisco, wishes the company luck and prosperity as the two businesses’ histories cross.

OpenDNS, the world's largest and fastest-growing provider of Internet security and DNS services that deliver a safer, faster and more intelligent Internet experience to everyone, today wished a successful, thriving future in its newly leased office space at 50 Fremont Street, the same address where OpenDNS was first incorporated in late 2005. 50 Fremont Street is a skyscraper rising 43 floors up from Fremont and Mission Streets where San Francisco's Financial District and South of Market Area (SOMA) meet. Salesforce will occupy 400,000 of the building’s more than 800,000 square feet.

“We wish Marc Benioff and his highly capable team a booming 2012 and beyond at 50 Fremont,” said OpenDNS Founder and CEO David Ulevitch. “It was an exceptional place for us to get our start and we wish you all the best as you embark on the next chapter of growth for Salesforce.”

Ulevitch joked, “If Marc is interested, I’d be happy to share the coveted details regarding the best parking spot in the garage and some of the tastier lunch options in the area.”

OpenDNS was founded in late 2005 by Ulevitch and its first office was on the twelfth floor at 50 Fremont Street. It was in that first office that the OpenDNS model of delivering a safer, faster and more reliable Internet was proven to be both a transformative technology innovation, and also a service embraced by people around the world. Today OpenDNS is used by more than 30 million people, including Fortune 50 enterprises and more than 1 in 3 U.S. K-12 schools and has a presence on more than half of all U.S. college and university campuses.

Ulevitch looks forward to congratulating Benioff in person when they convene in Davos at the end of January for the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum.
