With the growth of generative AI services, organizations want better control of the data going in and coming out of AI. Talon CEO Ofer Ben-Noon discussed how his firm has built a DLP compliance model around generative AI services that blocks healthcare information or SWIFT numbers shared with ChatGPT or other generative AI services.

The Tel Aviv-based enterprise browser vendor teamed up with Microsoft to offer a private service through Azure OpenAI that ensures the model isn't being trained on inputted data and restricts access to less-secure generative AI services (see: Talon Cyber Security Raises $100M to Enhance Secure Browser).

"If organizations are not going to be at the forefront of AI, if they are not going to leverage it, then they are losing a significant opportunity for productivity and for doing much more with their existing workforce," Ben-Noon said. "Everyone would like to enable this capability, but in a way that is secure and compliant."

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Ben-Noon also discussed:

  • How Talon has spent the proceeds from its $100 million Series A funding round;
  • How Talon's enterprise browser provides security around third-party suppliers;
  • What differentiates Talon from competitors such as Citrix, CyberArk and Island.

Ben-Noon was the founder and CEO of automotive cyber security vendor Argus, which was acquired by Continental in 2017. Following the acquisition, he served as a member of senior management at Continental and as CEO of Argus, leading it to protect over 60 million vehicles globally. Ben-Noon served as captain in the IDF Cyber Intelligence Unit 8200 and was a team member of two Israel Defense Prize-winning projects.
