Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning has grown out of computer science, statistics, and various engineering specialties, to become ubiquitous to the way our modern world is developing. Given the trust placed on these software models, they become a magnet to threat actors. Most discussion of threats to AI focus on the model running in the cloud. When it comes to models running in client-side applications or Edge AI, different risk models are required.
AI models are distributed as software. As such, their code is as vulnerable to attack as any other software application. This puts them at risk of piracy, reverse engineering, and malicious manipulation. Given the high-value nature of these models, they quickly become a magnet for those wishing to profit from doing harm.
This makes it necessary to securely license and protect your AI models.
PACE is experienced in protecting software IP across multiple markets, and working with data science and ModelOps teams. PACE delivers a proven license and security solution to AI/ML developers, allowing them to maximize their value.
MATLAB is used by engineers, mathematicians, and scientists the world over to analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models. PACE provides best-in-class licensing solutions for MATLAB-developed applications, allowing you to securely distribute your standalone MATLAB application.LEARN ABOUT USING PACE WITH MATLAB
Today's hackers are extremely clever and persistent. They will strip copy protection, steal your unique model, and distribute it for free online. We understand their techniques and strive to make their lives difficult. PACE Licensing means you can safely distribute your application and manage who is using your model.
Theft of software-based IP is nothing new—whether for monetary gain or commercial advantage—and has been shown to negatively impact not only short-term revenue but also long-term company valuations. Because AI models are distributed as software, they are prone to the same reverse engineer attacks. PACE Licensing stops the wholesale theft of your application, while our targeted software protection secures your model against reverse engineering.
AI/ML also introduces new threats. External analysis known as “query attacks” involves attempts to discern the internal logic of an AI model. In scenarios involving client-side and Edge AI, attackers can access the model's underlying code. This acquired knowledge can then potentially be exploited to alter the model's behavior and rules. With targeted protection of algorithms and models, PACE works with customers to prevent such attacks.
Securely license your AI model to maximize your value and protect your IP. PACE’s robust software licensing allows you to focus on monetizing your models.
Targeted software protection of any algorithm with White-Box Works protects your IP from reverse engineering and ensures the privacy and integrity of the data your algorithm processes.
