Cmd, a Vancouver, Canada-based creator of a security platform that provides control and visibility into production workloads in the Cloud and on-premise, completed $15m USD Series B round of funding.
The round, which brought total raise to $21.6m USD, was led by GV (formerly Google Ventures), with participation from Expa, Amplify Partners and additional strategic investors. In conjunction with the funding, Karim Faris, general partner at GV, joined Cmd’s board of directors.
The company intends to use the funds to grow its product and engineering teams to continue to develop new defensive capabilities for its core platform.
Founded in early 2016 within Expa’s startup studio by Jake King, former security operations lead at Hootsuite, and Milun Tesovic, partner at Expa, Cmd created a platform for CIOs, CTOs, and security teams at large enterprises to log, understand, predict, and control user behavior in their Linux environment.
The solution provides comprehensive visibility and real-time, pre-execution protection without the need for human intervention.
The company serves organizations including Uber, Qubole and Zenefits, among others.
