Argus Cyber Security, Ericsson To Collaborate On Protection Across Connected Services And Vehicles
February 26, 2018 | Israeli-founded Argus Cyber Security, acquired late last year by German auto giant Continental AG for over $400 million, announced that it was collaborating with Stockholm-based communications giant Ericsson to provide protection for “the connected automotive ecosystem – across vehicle cloud services, fleets and vehicles.” The partnership will include integrating Argus Security Operation Center, a platform that provides parts and equipment manufacturers and fleet managers with situation awareness of potential threats, with Ericsson’s Connected Vehicle Cloud platform to provide automakers with an additional powerful layer of security, Argus announced in a statement. “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,” Argus said. “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,” said Yoni Heilbronn, chief marketing officer at Argus Cyber Security. Argus and Ericsson will be showcasing their collaboration at the Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona this week.
