    San Francisco, June 4, 2024 – Tonic.ai, the San Francisco-based company pioneering data transformation solutions for software and AI developers, was named to Rising in Cyber 2024, an independent list launched by Notable Capital to recognize the most promising cybersecurity companies in the eyes of Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs), venture capital investors, and other security leaders.

    Notable Capital partnered with 100+ CISOs, VPs of Security from companies such as Amazon, Atlassian, Coupang, and Netflix, and prominent venture capital firms to nominate and vote on approximately 200 companies in order to select the 30 honorees. Honorees were chosen based on their proven ability to solve critical problems for security teams. Having raised more than $6 billion collectively, the companies recognized by Rising in Cyber demonstrate the enthusiasm of the cybersecurity industry for innovation in this sector. In celebration, honorees will be recognized at the New York Stock Exchange today.

    “We're honored to be recognized for the work we're doing securing all types of data. We started Tonic with the goal of being a win-win for security and DevOps or MLOps by making high quality secure data available for developers and AI engineers,” said Ian Coe, Co-founder and CEO, Tonic.ai. “The organizations we’ve partnered with along the way have not only validated our work but also enabled us to hone our solutions to best meet the needs of today’s most innovative teams.”

    Tonic.ai transforms data for software and AI developers to get them the secure and scalable synthetic data they need to build applications and train LLM models effectively. Their suite of products enables on-demand access to safe, high-fidelity versions of structured, semi-structured, or free-text data for software testing and AI development. The company was founded in 2018 with the launch of Tonic Structural, their flagship developer platform for data de-identification, synthesis, and provisioning that enables developers to keep test data secure, accessible, and in sync across testing and development environments. Most recently, they launched the world’s first secure data lakehouse for LLMs, Tonic Textual, built to eliminate integration and privacy challenges ahead of RAG ingestion or LLM training—two of the biggest bottlenecks hindering enterprise AI adoption. Leveraging its expertise in data management and realistic synthesis, Tonic.ai has developed a solution to tame and protect siloed, messy, and complex unstructured data into AI-ready formats ahead of embedding, fine-tuning, or vector database ingestion.

    “We see more innovation among cybersecurity startups than ever before, especially as AI creates both opportunities and new risks. Areas such as identity and access management, cloud security, and application security will see increased adoption by CISOs as security teams adapt to the rising role of AI,” said Oren Yunger, Managing Partner, Notable Capital. “Congratulations to the honorees of Rising in Cyber 2024!”
