Irdeto has opened an office in Pontiac, Michigan, to encourage collaboration with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), automotive suppliers and fleet operators on improving security for connected and autonomous vehicles (C/AVs).
Niels Haverkorn, general manager, connected transport, Irdeto, says: “The key challenge is to identify a comprehensive security solution that is able to protect the vehicle itself and safely implement innovative business models.”
The move follows a previous initiative where Irdeto partnered with SafeRide Technologies to launch a solution to help OEMs and Tier-1 suppliers protect C/AVs.
The Vsentry device combines network security with software security to detect anomalies and respond to attacks. It is also expected to offer protection from zero-day threats which exploit an unknown computer security vulnerability.
