[NEWS] Amplifier Security: Bridging the Workforce-Security Divide with AI

Atlanta, Georgia – April 24, 2024; Amplifier Security, a pioneering cybersecurity company, has emerged from stealth mode with a groundbreaking solution that bridges the gap between the workforce and security through AI-powered automation and a human-centric approach. With a $3.3 million pre-seed funding round led by Cota Capital and participation from WestWave Capital, Shift Left Ventures, and notable angel investors, Amplifier is poised to revolutionize how organizations tackle the last-mile security challenge.

Amplifier Security’s innovative platform, Ampy, acts as a trusted AI security buddy that engages employees in the security process, empowering them to understand and resolve security issues while maintaining productivity. By providing a user-friendly engagement layer between existing security tools and the workforce, Ampy guides employees through security protocols based on real-time insights, fostering a culture of security awareness and collaboration.

Enhancing Security Posture Through Employee Engagement

Traditional security approaches often lead to a strained relationship between security teams and employees, as enforcing controls through automation can disrupt workflows and hinder productivity. Amplifier Security recognizes the importance of involving employees directly in the security process, not only to speed up response times but also to significantly boost an organization’s overall security posture.

Ampy’s personalized engagements help employees triage alerts and self-heal security issues with context and actionable information. By meeting employees where they already work, such as Slack, Chrome, Email, or Teams, Ampy ensures a seamless and efficient security experience.

Unlocking the Power of Security Data Fabric

Amplifier Security’s platform leverages a Security Data Fabric that creates a real-time security knowledge graph by parsing and mapping data across a company’s best-of-breed security stack. This single source of truth for each employee across security tools enables organizations to enforce 100% security tooling coverage and gain visibility into potential gaps that could lead to breaches.

The platform’s Security Hub contextualizes and prioritizes security risks and vulnerabilities, helping organizations translate findings into actionable remediation engagements. With intuitive dashboards and natural language queries, CISOs, security teams, and departmental leaders can comprehensively understand their security posture and identify compounded risks for individuals.

Transforming Security Operations with AI and No-Code Workflows

Amplifier Security’s Engagement Studio transcends traditional no-code workflows, empowering security teams to design and manage end-user engagements through intuitive generative AI prompts. This innovative approach offloads countless hours of manual work, such as correlating data in spreadsheets, chasing down employees to triage alerts, and maintaining security hygiene.

By leveraging AI and automation, Amplifier Security enables security teams to resolve issues rapidly, freeing up valuable time and resources to focus on strategic initiatives and proactive threat management.

Bridging the Gap Between People and Technology

Amplifier Security’s founders, Shreyas Sadalgi and Thomas Donnelly, bring decades of experience in enterprise security, IT, and automation to the table. Donnelly, a three-time CISO and CIO, firmly believes that in today’s dynamic and decentralized workplaces, CISOs need to rethink how their teams operate by empowering users to self-heal their own security issues.

“There is a massive gap in the market that is preventing security practitioners from being successful. Most security tools aren’t built to engage users, as they’re always meant to work in the background,” said Shreyas Sadalgi, CEO and co-founder at Amplifier Security. “Amplifier flips the script by engaging employees on behalf of all security tools in a more human-friendly way, where every end-user interaction is a two-way conversation with the right tonality, context, empathy, and actionable information based on the security finding and the user role.”

Empowering CISOs to Embrace the Future of Security

With the support of investors and industry luminaries, Amplifier Security is well-positioned to drive a movement that forward-thinking CISOs will embrace to efficiently and effectively manage enterprise security. By shifting the cybersecurity focus to include both technology and the people who use it, Amplifier Security creates a balanced and more secure environment for businesses.

“Security is fundamentally about both people and technology, yet the industry has largely built security tools focused solely on the technology element. Everyone knows that engaging humans is the biggest opportunity when it comes to cybersecurity in workplaces. Amplifier answers the bell with its unique human-in-the-loop solution,” said Aditya Singh, Partner at Cota Capital.

Amplifying Security for a Safer Digital Future

As Amplifier Security emerges from stealth, the company is poised to transform the cybersecurity landscape by empowering employees to participate in their organization’s security actively. By harnessing the power of AI, automation, and human-centric design, Amplifier Security is bridging the divide between the workforce and security, creating a safer and more productive digital future for businesses worldwide.

Companies interested in amplifying their security can sign up on Amplifier Security’s website, and the team will be on-site at the 2024 RSA Conference in San Francisco for live demos and discussions.
