About Us

We're Working On Some Of Cloud Computing's Toughest Challenges

Fugue automates cloud operations, eases public and private sector compliance, and simplifies lifecycle management of the AWS infrastructure service stack. To ensure customers can innovate faster, Fugue validates systems before they're built and continuously enforces them after. Fugue has eight patents granted and 16 pending. Gartner named Fugue a Cool Vendor in Cloud Computing 2017.

Our founders started Fugue in 2013 to face one of cloud computing’s most vexing challenges—the nitty-gritty, secure management of cloud infrastructure operations for businesses large and small. Since then, we’ve built a new kind of system for operating the cloud that automates infrastructure-as-code and policy-as-code from one source of truth. Our devoted team of more than 70 skilled engineers and talented creative professionals combines decades of experience with fresh vision and relentless quality control to deliver an innovative approach that works.

Our offices are primarily based in Frederick, MD, Washington, DC, and Silicon Valley, CA. Our team spans the globe, with members located in Atlanta, Miami, and Seattle and as far away as Zurich and Tokyo, all collaborating daily. We’re venture-backed, having raised $74MM to date, with prescient, supportive partners at New Enterprise Associates, Future Fund, The Maryland Venture Fund, and Core Capital.

    Fugue CEO Phillip Merrick talks about the factors that led him to join Fugue. He’s spent more than a decade helping lead innovative and fast-growing cloud and SaaS companies such as webMethods, SparkPost, and VisualCV. A common concern at all of them was ensuring that the infrastructure, databases, and applications they put into the cloud were kept as safe and secure as possible. This assurance is exactly what Fugue provides by ensuring that cloud infrastructure both meets the organization’s security policies and doesn’t drift from the known good state.
