At diagrams.net, being open source means anyone can take the project, deploy it, integrate it, and sell it.
In fact, the free online diagrams.net tool has already been integrated into a wide variety of platforms, and is available to be deployed as a self-hosted docker application, or used as a stand-alone private diagramming application.
Open source provides you with more robust security because flaws and security holes can’t be hidden. Everyone can scrutinise the application code, stored publicly on Github.
Your diagram data stays private
Your diagram data is stored in your browser while you are editing it, and at a location of your choice. If you choose a cloud host such as GOogle Drive, your diagram data is transmitted with end-to-end encryption. The diagrams.net application does not store your diagram data, and therefore eliminates the risk of security breaches.
diagrams.net desktop is a stand-alone, offline application available for Windows, macOS and Linux. This is ideal if you want the enhanced security of a desktop application with no reliance on an internet connection. Get the desktop app today

The following integrations are not developed by the diagrams.net team.
Atlassian Confluence and Jira
diagrams.net is available via the draw.io apps for Confluence and Jira, available via the Atlassian Marketplace for Cloud, Data Centre and Server. draw.io for Confluence is the highest-rated app on the Atlassian Marketplace.
diagrams.net is currently funded via this third-party integration with Atlassian software - that’s why we call diagrams.net commercial open-source.
- Enterprise file management support: Even if your company doesn’t want to store diagrams inside the Confluence or Jira instance, you can take advantage of the app’s integrations with Google Drive and Microsoft’s OneDrive.
- Flexible customisation: By using these apps within your Confluence and Jira environment, you can customise many aspects to make it easier for your employees to diagram: templates, shapes, shape libraries, colour palettes and style to match your corporate image, plugins, and even the user interface can be customised.
- Easy migration: If you have many Gliffy and/or LucidChart OnPrem diagrams in your Confluence instances, you can convert all of these to draw.io diagrams with one click in the app administration section.
