A mobility software technology company Renova and automotive cyber security leader Argus Cyber Security have joined hands to incorporate Argus’ patented Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IDPS) technology into Renovo’s AWare automated mobility operating system.
The partnership marks the first-ever initiative to embed cyber security solutions in automated mobility on demand fleets.
The tie-up enable both the technology firms cooperate on further integration of advanced, multi-layered cyber security solutions with AWare for the fast-growing automated mobility on-demand (AMoD) market.
Ofer Ben-Noon, Argus Cyber Security CEO and Co-Founder, “Argus understands the vital nature of AMoD services to the future of mobility, and we’re excited to play an integral role in ensuring these transportation networks are protected from cyber attacks. By integrating our cyber security expertise with Renovo’s outstanding software capabilities, we are ensuring that cities and societies around the world will enjoy the benefits of this cutting edge technology,” said
Imminent government legislation in the United States mandates the inclusion of IDPS in any vehicle sold, imported, or even exhibited, underscoring the importance of automotive cyber security, and IDPS in particular.
Cyber security and privacy challenges in the automotive sector are gaining importance as vehicles become increasingly connected and automated.
“Argus’ patented IDPS technology will immediately help secure our development vehicles running AWare and do so for customer fleet deployments in 2018,” Heiser said.
