Vancouver, British Columbia—(Newsfile Corp. – July 20, 2023) — Plurilock Security Inc. (TSXV: PLUR) (OTCQB: PLCKF) and related subsidiaries ("Plurilock" or the "Company"), an AI cybersecurity solutions provider for workforces, is pleased to announce the launch of beta access to a new AI safety SaaS product for business and government, 'PromptGuard' which will be offered to customers as part of the Plurilock AI platform.
With the rapid rise of generative artificial intelligence (AI) use in the workplace, business and government organizations find themselves in urgent need of a solution that enables employees to safely use AI while preventing the mass leakage of confidential, proprietary, or regulated data into AI platforms. The Canadian Centre for Cybersecurity, a part of Canada’s national cryptologic agency and a source of expert cybersecurity advice, services, guidance and support for Canadians, recognizes the risks of generative AI and has recently published a guidance report on this subject, which outlines measures to mitigate the threats of AI.
PromptGuard is a new AI-driven cloud access security broker (CASB) that supports employee AI use while ensuring that sensitive data is not released to AI systems. PromptGuard provides strong AI guardrails without obstructing AI use. PromptGuard relies on a combination of mature data loss prevention technology and new, patent-pending, Plurilock AI platform technology to enable users to interact with generative AI such that:
- The AI platform does not receive sensitive data through user generated AI prompts
- The user need not be aware of any anonymization or redaction having taken place
These capabilities enable employees to use generative AI tools without compromising data privacy, security, and governance. This makes AI safer for businesses and their employees while eliminating the need to block either AI use entirely or specific AI prompts.
The product was developed as part of the Company’s focus on generative AI safety and was built using Plurilock’s new CASB technology for AI, which is the subject of a U.S. provisional patent filing previously announced on July 18, 2023. PromptGuard was designed using insights gathered from the Company's large customer base and extensive client network, which was established as a direct result of the Company’s acquisitions of several cybersecurity solution providers.
PromptGuard is available under Plurilock’s early access program (EAP) as a closed, by-invitation beta experience. Interested businesses and government organizations can request an invitation to the beta experience at: https://plurilock.com/ai-beta.
"We are excited to launch early access to PromptGuard," said Ian L. Paterson, CEO of Plurilock. "Based on dozens of conversations with senior leaders in recent months, we believe that enterprises have a significant and urgent need for this technology, which will help to restore their ability to manage and protect sensitive data without eliminating the significant productivity gains that their employees have seen with generative AI use."
