Argus Cyber Security, a global leader in automotive cyber security, and STMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, announces a joint effort to ensure the cyber security of connected automotive technologies. As telematics and infotainment units become increasingly complex to support high-value connected services, they become more vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Securing these units against such attacks requires sophisticated, multi-layered security, and ongoing monitoring throughout the lifetime of the vehicle.
Together, the companies have integrated Argus Connectivity Protection with ST’s Telemaco3P automotive microprocessor to detect and block attacks on vehicle telematics units in real-time and prevent them from proliferating to the in-vehicle network. In addition, the joint solution with Argus Lifespan Protection provides automakers with: situational awareness of the cyber health of their fleets on the road, insights into emerging threats through big data analytics, and the ability to mitigate new threats through security updates over-the-air and enhance the secure deployment of remote services (applications, SW updates). The integrated offering provides a critical piece in a multi-layered approach to cyber defense, helping automakers secure vehicles and ensuring the safety of drivers and the public.
