Independent automotive cyber security company, Argus Cyber Security, has announced an integrated solution to enhance security capabilities of connected vehicles. The solution features Argus Connectivity Protection suite and the highly-integrated Qualcomm Snapdragon 820A processor, a product of Qualcomm Technologies.
The Argus Connectivity Protection suite is designed to help detect and prevent advanced cyber-attacks from penetrating and compromising vehicular infotainment and telematics units. Together, Argus and Qualcomm Technologies will provide a critical layer of defense designed to guard against code execution vulnerabilities and other exploits, while helping to support the secure and private use of connected automotive technologies.
The solution and its cross-platform operating system capabilities (compatible with Linux, QNX, Android and more), will be on display at the Qualcomm Technologies Automotive booth, located in the North Hall, #5609, during CES 2017.
“Argus’ decision to include our Snapdragon 820A processor into its Connectivity Protection suite is a natural fit,” said Nakul Duggal, Vice President of product management, Qualcomm Technologies. “Securing connected components from potential intrusions is paramount, and we look forward to having the Snapdragon 820A processor play a key role in making that goal a reality.”
“Having Qualcomm Technologies provide OEMs and Tier 1s with an advanced, ready-to-embed, automotive cyber security solution is another proactive step that Argus is taking to make it easier to defend against cyber threats today, and long into the future,” said Yoni Heilbronn, Vice President of Marketing, Argus. “It is critical that best-in-class, multi-layered cyber security solutions are embedded into the connected vehicles of tomorrow. Integrating the Snapdragon 820A processor with our solution will go a long way in supporting our mission to protect every car and commercial vehicle on the road from hacking.”
