Risky Biz Soap Box: Cmd’s Jake King talks Linux security

In this episode of Risky Biz, host Patrick Gray interviews Cmd’s Co-Founder and CEO Jake King about how Cmd is using data science and machine learning to improve security on Linux. It’s a great episode – a must-listen for anyone looking to get to the next level in visibility and control over their Linux-based cloud & data center environments.

The data we are collecting is producing a lot of compelling insights into how developers, operators, and admins are interacting with production Linux instances at scale. Linux environments are too often a “big black box” – where you don’t know what’s happening inside. That makes it really hard to audit and protect these systems.

Listen to Patrick and Jake dig into this issue, with a particular focus on how the right data changes the game, covering topics such as:

  • How Cmd is developing a broader and more accurate spectrum of Linux-specific intelligence than virtually anything else out there including Auditd
  • Cmd’s position as one of the first vendors to centralize this data in a simple format and provide metadata analytics from billions of events per week
  • The importance of managing an appropriate signal-to-noise ratio that allows practitioners to focus their efforts on the security events that actually matter
