AUSTIN, Texas. Artificial intelligence (AI) security provider HiddenLayer announced its selection by AFWERX (the innovation arm of the Department of the Air Force) for a small business innovation Direct-to-Phase II contract aimed at implementing HiddenLayer's Machine Learning Security (MLSec) Platform to address new challenges posed by the use of AI.
Under the terms of the contract -- reported to be $1.25 million -- HiddenLayer will install its flagship product HiddenLayer MLDR, Model Scanner, and Security Audit Reporting as a cyberdefense tool against threats to the Air Force's AI and machine learning (ML) assets.
According to company information, the HiddenLayer MLDR tool uses an ML-based approach to analyze ML model events in real time to identify malicious activity without requiring access to the organization's ML models or sensitive training data.
