Lasso Security secures $6M in funding round

SiliconAngle reports that Israel-based large language model security startup Lasso Security has landed a $6 million investment as part of a seed funding round, which will be allocated toward strengthening its workforce and platform. Aside from facilitating the analysis of organizations' technology environment and generative artificial intelligence tools, Lasso Security's platform has also been touted to provide extensive information on individuals leveraging generative AI tools, the tools they are using, and the process of utilization. AI prompts with credit card numbers and other sensitive data could also be mitigated using the platform, which could be set up to prevent input of sensitive data into external LLMs. Moreover, cybersecurity issues in output generated by AI models could be identified by Lasso Security, which could also curb prompt injection and denial-of-service attacks. "Lasso's solution directly addresses the vulnerabilities associated with LLMs. This enables businesses to confidently integrate large language models into their products or internal tools, while safeguarding their commercial data and information," said Eran Bielski of Entree Capital, the lead investor in Lasso's seed funding round.
