TrojAI, a leading provider of enterprise AI security solutions, announced a $5.75 million funding round of additional seed capital and the appointment of Lee Weiner as the company’s CEO. This funding round was led by Flying Fish, with participation from current investors Build Ventures and Techstars and new investors Alteryx Ventures and Flybridge Capital Partners.

The additional funding will help TrojAI build on its success, grow, and continue enabling enterprises to secure AI models and applications. It will also support product development, sales, and marketing efforts. TrojAI will expand its operations to the U.S. with a new office in Boston, Massachusetts to meet growing global demand.

Lee Weiner joins the company as CEO to drive continued growth and enterprise adoption of TrojAI. And he brings over 25 years of B2B software experience, with an extensive background in the cybersecurity sector. Weiner has experience leading companies in the early and growth stages to IPO and beyond. Before joining TrojAI, Weiner was a senior executive at Rapid7 for 11 years, leading products, engineering, and innovation as the company scaled from $40 million to over $750 million in revenue. Earlier, he had senior roles with LogMeIn, Symantec, and Netegrity.

AI is transforming the enterprise by enabling limitless new use cases that increase productivity and customer value. However, it also presents increased risks and threats that must be managed and mitigated. TrojAI is a comprehensive AI security platform for businesses that assesses model risks prior to deployment and protects AI applications once in production. The new funding round will support the expansion of the business and its AI/Machine Learning (ML) solutions.

TrojAI also added new board member Chip Hazard (General Partner and Co-Founder of Flybridge Capital Partners).
