New HiddenLayer platform protects machine learning models

Cybersecurity for machine learning modeling startup HiddenLayer Inc. today announced the public launch of a new artificial intelligence cybersecurity platform that enables security operations and data science teams to protect their AI investments against adversarial machine learning attacks.

The HiddenLayerMLSec platform includes the company’s flagship products, HiddenLayer MLDR, ModelScanner and Security Audit Reporting. HiddenLayer MLDR uses a machine learning-based approach to analyze model events in real time to identify malicious activity without requiring access to organization models or sensitive training data.

The company says adversarial machine learning attacks are the latest and most destructive development in the threat landscape, targeting advanced and important technology. The attacks are said to be an evolution of traditional cybersecurity threats such as malware, ransomware, phishing, spam and data breaches, and modern environments are not prepared to defend against them.

Parts of the platform include real-time defense, flexible response options, and configurable settings to suit a business’ needs. The ModelScanner scans and ensures model integrity by identifying vulnerabilities and ensuring models have not been compromised by malicious code injections.

Security audit reports validate the security of the machine learning model across the enterprise, providing a comprehensive view of the security status of AI and machine learning assets. An on-demand dashboard and distributable reports come with vulnerability prioritization.

“The rapid adoption of AI/ML introduces a new attack surface for threat actors to exploit, so we need the tools and insights to be able to shed light on where our learning models automated systems are the most vulnerable to attack,” explained Malcolm Harkins, chief security and trust officer at Epiphany Systems Inc., one of HiddenLayer’s existing customers. “The HiddenLayer team is made up of subject matter experts in the field of artificial intelligence and cybersecurity. They have developed products that allow our security operations teams to stay ahead of emerging AI threats. »

In addition to announcing the new platform, HiddenLayer is also looking for early-stage design partners who are looking to meet their cybersecurity needs as they increase their investments in AI and want to do so safely. .

HiddenLayer is a venture-backed startup that has raised $6 million to date. According to Crunchbase, the company’s investors include Ten Eleven Ventures.
