HydroX AI secures new funding for LLM safety and security innovation

HydroX AI, an artificial intelligence (AI) startup with the industry’s first comprehensive all-in-one large language model (LLM) safety and security platform, recently announced closing a USD 4 million angel round from Vitalbridge Capital, Atom Capital and noted AI expert, Qi Lu, EVP of Microsoft, former COO of Baidu.

The funding will provide the means for HydroX AI to continue LLM safety innovation, validate the market need, and further the platform’s market entry goals.

The investment comes to a fast-growing segment of the exploding LLM AI market. Global LLM revenue is projected to grow to 260 billion by 2030. With that growth comes increasing safety and security risk. HydroX AI has found that a typical LLM is vulnerable to attack and compromise in as little as three months from release, meaning constant security measure updates are a must. As a result, HydroX AI sees great need and potential in the AI Trust, Risk, and Security Management (AI TRiSM) sector.

“The blending of artificial intelligence with society is just starting. It raises issues beyond privacy and security, including ethics, learning, and mental effects. Looking ahead, security will be key, not just for protection but as a foundation for AI’s growth,” said Ben, partner at Vitalbridge Capital.

HydroX AI was created to directly address these LLM risks by providing a comprehensive platform for the evaluation, mitigation, protection, and monitoring of Large Language Model (LLM) safety and security in the four trust domains: safety, privacy, integrity and security.

HydroX AI is currently in early development engaging with major LLM companies. Several of these companies have seen notable enhancements from the platform, showcasing EPASS’s potential and affirming its strategy for tackling trust issues in LLMs. These endorsements from leading LLM companies not only underline its pioneering role but also secure a first-mover advantage in the crucial, evolving field of AI safety and security.

HydroX AI was founded by Zhuo Li, former head of the Privacy and Data Protection Office at Bytedance. Before Bytedance, Li developed his expertise at Meta and LinkedIn, contributing significantly to privacy and security measures. The team, rich in safety and security veterans, includes Head of Engineering Yuji Kosuga, with deep roots in the field through experiences at companies such as LinkedIn, Google, and Meta, underscoring their profound dedication to advancing AI safety and security.
