Argus Cyber Security collaborates with Ericsson for cybersecurity
Argus Cyber Security announced it is collaborating with Ericsson to provide cybersecurity 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 layer of security that leverages intelligence findings across both platforms. According to the companies, 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' multilayered cybersecurity solutions embedded in the vehicle can provide real-time protection from cyberattacks, 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 companies say they'll work together to provide automakers with comprehensive cybersecurity coverage of the cloud, connected services, and vehicle fleets in addition to securely integrating and monetizing the connected vehicle ecosystem.
"In order to enable an increasing number of vehicle cloud services to interact with a vehicle, the automotive industry recognizes the need for a holistic cybersecurity strategy, which demands multi-layered, end-to-end cybersecurity covering every node in the ecosystem, throughout a vehicle's lifespan," said Yoni Heilbronn, Chief Marketing Officer, Argus Cyber Security. "Together with Ericsson, we are helping automakers ensure the security and privacy of their customers through comprehensive cyber security solutions and services, while simultaneously maintaining consumer trust and brand identity."
Claes Herlitz, head of Connected Vehicles at Ericsson, said, "We are offering an attractive proposition for automotive OEMs through the combination of Ericsson's Connected Vehicle Cloud's ability to securely manage a large number of connected vehicles with an in-vehicle expert like Argus and its capabilities for vehicle protection and threat detection."
