Relyance AI Named to CB Insights’ 2023 AI 100 Global List of Most Promising Artificial Intelligence Companies

SAN FRANCISCO--()--CB Insights, a leading global market research firm, has recognized Relyance AI, an AI-powered data protection and governance platform focused on building trust, on its 2023 “AI 100” list of the world’s 100 most promising private AI companies. Relyance AI was selected as one of the top in the Privacy & Security category for its innovative code scanning and machine learning technology. This is the first time that Relyance AI has been recognized by CB Insights.

The companies named to this year’s list were selected by the CB Insights research team from a pool of more than 7,000 private companies worldwide. Specific criteria included customers, business partnerships, and collaborations, R&D capabilities, market potential, competitive industry outlook, team profile, technology application novelty, and CB Insights’ independently developed evaluation system.

“This recognition further validates the strategic, AI-powered approach we’ve taken to building a data privacy management platform that embeds data protection at the source code level, when code is compiled or earlier, and always before personal data is processed or code is pushed live into production,” said Leila Golchehreh, Relyance AI Co-CEO and Co-Founder. “This industry-leading approach, coupled with our deep expertise in the legal, privacy, and AI industry, is at the heart of our unique and innovative privacy as code, shift-left philosophy.”

Abhi Sharma, Relyance AI Co-CEO and Co-Founder, added, “This accolade is a testament to our relentless commitment to innovation and our unwavering focus on delivering cutting-edge, AI solutions for privacy compliance and data governance. For the first time, we have embedded controls for legal, security, and engineering teams right into source code, building better privacy from Day 1.”

Relyance AI: The next-generation AI data protection and governance platform

Relyance AI’s novel code-first approach to classification, privacy-by-design (PbD) and data governance applies semantic analysis, a technique commonly found in compilers, to track personal or sensitive information while integrating seamlessly with a company’s existing software development and security workflows. The company’s innovative scanning techniques analyze code to create a semantic representation that provides a clear, complete, and up-to-date view into how an organization’s internal and external systems process personal and sensitive information. This information is then correlated with runtime monitoring metadata, data at rest scans and compared against constraints from contracts and policies leveraging the latest advances in Natural Language Processing (NLP).

Public and private organizations including New Relic, Fivetran, Notion, Samsara, Lively, and many others have built their global privacy programs using the Relyance AI platform because of its deeply technical, automation-rich, and ML-driven approach.
