Denso and NRI Secure Technologies to establish joint venture for automotive cybersecurity
Denso announced it has agreed to establish a joint venture with NRI Secure Technologies, Ltd. to detect and diagnose the security risks of in-vehicle electronic products. The new cybersecurity company, named NDIAS, Ltd. is equally owned by Denso and NRI and will be officially established in December 2018.
NDIAS will harness Denso’s expertise in in-vehicle quality and cybersecurity technology development and NRI's proprietary machine learning technology to protect consumers against the rising threat of cyberattacks in the automotive industry. NRI has nearly 20 years of experience in security services in the fields of financial systems, infrastructure, and consumer equipment. The partnership aims to offer integrated security diagnosis and consulting services for in-vehicle electronic products from the vehicle development phase to the actions required after mass production.
Automated driving and connected vehicles will soon become commonplace and, as a result, various shared technologies and services will be linked within vehicles. Because of this, the companies say that international standards for automotive cybersecurity requirements must be established due to imminent threats such as hacking.
