SydeLabs Raises $2.5m

March 2024 by Marc Jacob

Globally, policymakers continue to be concerned about the security and safety risks of Generative AI.1 security & risk management startup SydeLabs announced their seed funding round of $2.5m to build solutions aimed at securing GenAI systems for enterprises. The funding round was led by RTP Global and also saw participation from Picus Capital and marquee angel investors.

The adoption of Generative AI has opened a new cybersecurity attack surface for those leveraging the technology. SydeLabs’ comprehensive AI security and Risk Management solutions address this emerging concern. The company offers solutions to identify security and safety vulnerabilities in enterprise AI systems and prevent them in real time, helping mitigate cybersecurity attacks and abuse. Founded by Ruchir Patwa and Ankita Kumari, SydeLabs’ mission is to make AI applications safe, secure and resistant to abuse.

Ruchir Patwa is a cybersecurity expert with over 10 years of experience, most recently leading security teams at Google and Mobile Premier League. Ankita Kumari compliments this skillset with her experience as a veteran of product leadership positions, including building fraud and risk management solutions at McKinsey & Company, Mobile Premier League and CRED. Together they have worked extensively on security, risk and fraud management.

In their market research with CISOs globally, SydeLabs are seeing increased acknowledgement of these vulnerabilities as enterprises are rapidly adopting Generative AI for various business use cases.

As the company looks to be a holistic AI Security and Risk Management Platform, its solution suite helps detect and prevent vulnerabilities in AI systems thus avoiding attacks, abuse and non-compliance. By focusing on the intent of attackers, rather than using traditional pattern matching approaches that are traditionally used for cybersecurity, the company is going further in its cybersecurity offering.

Galina Chifina, Partner on RTP Global’s Asia Investment team added: "We are super excited about the potential SydeLabs has in setting new standards for AI applications that are as secure as they are ground breaking. We love the vision of Ruchir and Ankita and are happy to back them so early in their journey. SydeLabs’ approach to AI security showcases the kind of forward-thinking application of technology we champion at RTP." said
