About Cmd_

Customers trust us because we know Linux. Scratch that – we love Linux. We have deep experience in cloud and endpoint security, and we are dedicated to delivering Linux-first, cloud-native solutions for security problems that every Linux administrator faces.

Jake King
CEO & Co-founder

Cmd was born out of the painful frustrations that we had faced personally as Security Officers protecting Linux. We knew there had to be a better way. And so we went out and created it: user-friendly, accessible solutions that made sense for modern DevOps teams operating in the cloud.
