When you need production access to resolve an incident or carry out a critical task, you can’t be slowed down by dinosaur-era PAM. Cmd gives users the privileges they need, when they need it, with full audit & granular control.
Take a look at your privileged access management (PAM) solution. It’s almost certain to have been built for Windows, where you have a dedicated IT staff managing users, identities, and group policies through Active Directory. The cloud is totally different. In Linux, identities are decentralized and systems are created and taken down through automated algorithms overseen by an army of DevOps engineers. Furthermore, very few controls exist – if any – to prevent a privileged user from doing something they shouldn’t do.
Legacy PAM solutions are not well suited for this fast-paced, high-velocity, decentralized environment. That’s why Cmd has approached PAM from a fresh, Linux-first perspective.
Cmd allows users to assume account identities already present on the box, making it so much easier to provision and manage than legacy PAM without compromising compliance controls.
Users access systems & containers however they choose, including ssh, tty, console, kubectl, IPMI and Cloud-native tools. No proprietary shell required.
Cmd works with modern provisioning methods and provides easy and flexible authentication through 2FA-gated logins and privilege escalations.
Block risky commands, even for a root user, providing pre-execution protection from human errors or legitimate threats.
Capture every command a user executes across privilege escalations, as well as output returned and context such as processes, files and netcons.
To provide adequate protection for workloads running in your cloud or datacenter, you’ve got to have a tight foundation, including privilege management.
If you answered “no” to any of these, now’s a good time to evaluate Cmd.
“We’re a high-growth company, so security can’t create friction. We need to deliver faster – all the time. That’s why we selected Cmd, so we can monitor and control access to sensitive systems without slowing DevOps down. This is what Privileged Access on Linux is supposed to be.”
VP Infrastructure and Security
Cmd was built Linux-First and Cloud-Native to provide a frictionless solution for managing privileged access in modern Production Linux environments. Here’s how Cmd compares to legacy PAM solutions.
|Access control on session login|
|Privilege escalation control|
|Login reporting for audits|
|Native shell integration: no proprietary shell required|
|Real-time session kill|
|DevOps-friendly integration with 2FA, Slack, Teams, and other Auth’n / Auth’z solutions|
|Control over individual commands|
|Integrated threat detection and alerting|
|Cloud managed - no infrastructure, no maintenance|
