Protecto secures $4m in seed funding to bolster enterprise AI data privacy


Protecto, a leading data privacy solution enabling safer AI, has announced the close of a $4 million seed funding round.

This significant financial milestone was spearheaded by Together Fund, with valuable contributions from Better Capital, FortyTwo VC, Arali Ventures, and Speciale Invest.

At the core of its operation, Protecto is dedicated to securing enterprise data. It plays a crucial role in the GenAI project lifecycle, ensuring the safe generation of synthetic data for model development and safeguarding sensitive information during interactions with large language models (LLMs).

In an era where data volumes are skyrocketing and complexity is increasing, Protecto’s services are more vital than ever. It addresses the growing concerns around data privacy, especially with the rise of AI in analyzing vast and unstructured data sources like chat histories, sales call transcripts, and community discussions.

The fresh influx of funds is set to propel Protecto’s ambitions further. The company plans to channel these resources into enhancing its technical capabilities by recruiting top-tier engineering talent. Additionally, it aims to broaden its strategic market initiatives, marking a significant step in its growth and expansion strategies.

Protecto’s journey in the competitive tech landscape has been marked by significant milestones. The recent funding round is not just a financial boost but a testament to the confidence investors have in Protecto’s vision and capabilities.

This seed round comes on the heels of Protecto’s initial fundraising efforts, where it raised $1 million from angel investors, including executives from tech giants Google and Microsoft in 2021. This earlier investment laid the groundwork for Protecto’s current success and future potential.
