Cybersecurity Leader Plurilock Embraces AI Safety With PromptGuard Platform

The MSP partner also makes waves with its first cross-sale order of this new solution that offers ‘powerful guardrails’ for generative AI usage.

AI has rapidly evolved and become more readily available to IT services providers, which has generated valid concerns about cybersecurity. But cybersecurity solutions leader Plurilock Security Inc. (TSXV: PLUR) (OTCQB: PLCKF) has made significant strides in providing a crucial layer of data protection for businesses delving into generative AI platforms like ChatGPT.

Plurilock earlier this fall announced a significant milestone: the release of its Plurilock AI PromptGuard Version 1.0 for general use. The innovative patent-pending solution — initially introduced through an early access program — is particularly relevant for MSPs navigating the challenges posed by generative AI platforms.

By incorporating Plurilock’s technology into their security protocols, MSPs can enhance their ability to safeguard client data in the evolving landscape of AI-driven cybersecurity threats.

Surging Interest in Advanced Cybersecurity

Plurilock’s platform automates the detection and redaction of confidential information in generative AI prompts. This ensures that employees can leverage generative AI tools for their work without compromising sensitive or regulated data. As the AI returns a response, data is seamlessly unredacted before being presented to the employee, facilitating smooth interactions while preventing inadvertent leaks of confidential information.

“We are pleased with the speed of delivering a solution to market for the generative AI problem so quickly” said Plurilock CEO Ian L. Paterson. “With the explosion in generative AI use during 2023, workforces everywhere have adopted AI rapidly — with or without employer endorsement. While other industry players are still working to develop a response, we’re already creating value with a solution that protects sensitive data invisibly, without negatively impacting employee AI productivity.”

In fact, the company in September announced it signed its first cross-sale order for Plurilock AI PromptGuard with a distinguished financial services firm in the Northeastern U.S.

Plurilock did not disclose the name of the company, however, the deal in Plurilock’s technology division signifies the growing demand for advanced cybersecurity solutions within the financial sector.

Demand for AI-driven tools is surging, positioning Plurilock as a trusted partner that allows businesses to embrace innovation without compromising data security. Its emphasis on scalability and affordability also aligns well with the operational dynamics of MSPs.

The Plurilock AI platform – spanning single sign-on, multifactor authentication, passwordless authentication, access control, and data loss prevention – caters to companies of all sizes, making it an ideal fit for MSPs serving a diverse clientele. This adaptability allows MSPs to efficiently integrate Plurilock’s solutions into their service portfolios, ensuring that their clients benefit from robust cybersecurity measures without the complexities often associated with traditional solutions.

“Plurilock AI offers tremendous value to MSPs,” said Philip de Souza, president of Plurilock’s Aurora division. “It gives MSPs a cost-effective, comprehensive, and highly manageable solution for end-to-end security fundamentals that leads the market in customer satisfaction. With the addition of PromptGuard, MSPs can differentiate themselves by offering customers … powerful guardrails and auditability for AI— all in one class-defining platform.”
