Argus Cyber Security is collaborating with Ericsson to provide seamless cyber security for the connected automotive ecosystem – across vehicle cloud services, fleets and vehicles.
The collaboration involves integrating Argus Security Operation Center with Ericsson’s Connected Vehicle Cloud platform to provide automakers with an additional powerful layer of security that leverages intelligence findings across both platforms.
The combined insights equip automakers with actionable intelligence derived from big data analysis across millions of connected vehicles and their cloud services to identify the first signs of an attack campaign and mitigate its damage by immunizing the fleet in hours.
In addition, Argus’ multi-layered cyber security solutions embedded in the vehicle provide real-time protection from cyber-attacks, including attacks on remote vehicle commands originating from the cloud – such as heating the interior cabin and opening the vehicle door – via smart-phone applications.
The combination of Argus’ and Ericsson’s solutions will provide automakers comprehensive cyber security coverage of the cloud, connected services and vehicle fleets. The companies will work hand-in-hand to enable automakers to securely integrate and monetize the connected vehicle ecosystem.
The collaboration leverages Ericsson’s communications expertise, built over 140 years and from connecting billions of people through connectivity infrastructure, and Argus’ decades of experience in cyber security and automotive, as well as the innovation of 39 granted and pending patents. Argus is already working with the major OEMs of connected and autonomous vehicles around the world.
Argus and Ericsson will be showcasing their collaboration at MWC 2018, Barcelona, at booth # 80, Hall 6, Fira de Barcelona, on February 26nd – March 1st, 2018.
