Check out what cyber leaders say about Command Zero

Art Coviello, Jr
Former Chairman & CEO at RSA Security, investor, independent board director
"As AI is transforming the world, Command Zero is leading the charge on reforming security operations. This platform empowers SecOps teams with the expertise, automation and best practices to achieve superior results at scale. This fresh approach leads to significant cost savings and reduced risk."
Gerhard Eschelbeck
CSO at Kodiak Robotics, former CISO at Google, former CTO at Sophos, former CTO at Webroot, former CTO at Qualys
"Standardizing incident response and building organizational knowledge are two key priorities for all Security Operations leaders. Command Zero checks both boxes and wows with LLM-based automation capabilities."
Oliver Friedrichs
Founder & CEO at Pangea, founder & former CEO at Phantom Cyber (acq by Splunk)
“SOAR follows known patterns and excels at triaging hundreds of known alerts with playbooks, yet it falls apart when processing new or previously unseen patterns and alerts. This is where Command Zero shines with expert content, automation and user-led capabilities.”
Corey Thomas
Chairman & CEO at Rapid7
“Solving the investigation bottleneck is one of the most impactful things any CISO can do. Command Zero offers a powerful investigation solution to optimize your most scarce security operations resources.“
Amit Yoran
Chairman & CEO at Tenable, former President at RSA, founder & former CEO at NetWitness, founding Director of US-CERT, cofounder & former CEO at Riptech (acq by Symantec)
"Investigating cyber escalations is the limiting factor to success in Security Operations. Command Zero is easy to get started, captures inherent knowledge from past investigations and delivers the expert outcomes we all need."
John N. Stewart
Talons Ventures, former SVP, Chief Security & Trust Officer at Cisco
"Consistency and subject matter expertise are the biggest challenges with cyber investigations at enterprise scale. Command Zero transforms the investigation process with expert content, advanced LLMs and an intuitive user interface. It’s crazy -not- to use it.”
Ann Johnson
Corporate Vice President and Deputy CISO at Microsoft
"Command Zero has captured and packaged decades of Incident Response knowledge, amounting to hundreds of common questions frequently asked by responders. These are delivered and executed through both flexible automation and user-led capabilities to speed up investigations in a predictable way and at scale.”
Tom Noonan
Independent board director, cofounder at Endgame Security (acq by Elastic), founder & former CEO at Internet Security Systems (ISSX later acq by IBM)
"I love solutions that address the unseen elephant in the room. Investigations have always been the most laborious and painful bottleneck of cyber operations, until now. Finally, Command Zero is disrupting the norm and catapulting security teams forward by leveling the playing field."
Alex Tosheff
Former SVP, CSO at VMWare, former CISO at PayPal
"Incident responders deserve the the best support. Command Zero gives them expert content, automation and LLMs trained on actual incidents. They can now swiftly and effectively combat threats. The platform not only boosts efficiency but also strengthens the resilience of our digital infrastructure with unparalleled capabilities.”
