HiddenLayer, a provider of cybersecurity tools for artificial intelligence applications, has raised $50 million in a Series A funding round co-led by Microsoft‘s (Nasdaq: MSFT) venture capital arm M12 and Moore Strategic Ventures.
The AI security company said Tuesday it will use the capital to advance the development of its machine learning security platform consisting of threat detection and response tools designed to protect ML models against malware, vulnerabilities and adversarial attacks.
HiddenLayer’s platform also works to monitor the inputs and outputs of AI algorithms and provide real-time defense and flexible response options.
“Their first-hand knowledge of these attacks, combined with their vision and novel approach, position the company as the go-to solution to protect these models,” said Todd Graham, managing partner at M12.
Booz Allen Ventures, IBM Ventures, Capital One Ventures and Ten Eleven Ventures were the other investors that took part in the funding round.
