C2A Security releases automotive cyber security management platform
C2A Security has announced the launch of its flagship cyber security product, AutoSec, the comprehensive automotive cyber security life cycle management platform. AutoSec meets the rapidly-evolving challenges of vehicle cyber security with an open platform that empowers industry stakeholders to identify and mitigate cyber attacks.
AutoSec arrives at a critical time for the industry: modern vehicle architecture is more vulnerable than ever before. OEMs and Tier 1s are grappling with the new ISO/ SAE 21434 standard as well as UNECE WP.29 regulation and cyber security teams are struggling to coordinate and effectively communicate responsibility.
To implement the complete cyber security protections today’s vehicles require and meet new standards and regulations, OEMs and Tier-1s must first achieve full-spectrum visibility of cyber security status across all vehicle models.
Second, OEMs and suppliers must be able to deploy and maintain in-vehicle protections against cyber attacks throughout the vehicle life cycle. In AutoSec, C2A Security has created a platform that meets both needs. This cyber security hub is the first of its kind and gives users unparalleled transparency into the entire cyber security life cycle, enabling streamlined management of each phase with just a few clicks: risk assessment, planning, policy creation and enforcement.
AutoSec also enables a higher level of coordination among stakeholders in the automotive supply chain, creating new opportunities for collaboration that allow security teams to prepare for future cyber attacks on the industry.
For the first time in the automotive industry, AutoSec harmonises communication among all the players down the supply chain, creating a uniform and effective channel for risk management that maintains in-vehicle cyber security throughout the vehicle life cycle.
To accelerate industry-wide cyber security improvements and facilitate harmonisation of cyber security efforts across supply chain organisations, C2A Security is releasing AutoSec under a 'freemium' model. Any interested cyber security team can begin using AutoSec free of charge and immediately gain full-spectrum visibility into all of a vehicle’s components.
Chief Product and Marketing Officer, Nathaniel Meron said: “Core to C2A’s mission is to see the automotive industry truly secure, protecting companies and drivers alike. In service of that mission, AutoSec delivers the three key capabilities the industry currently lacks - visibility, control and protection - in a single, centralis ed platform. By developing AutoSec with extensive input from automotive cyber security innovators and making it free to use for all players, we are contributing to the industry’s ongoing efforts to tackle the many cyber security challenges of today and tomorrow.”
AutoSec joins C2A’s suite of in-vehicle cyber security solutions, which take a multi-layered approach to cybersecurity to provide automotive-relevant protection and safety compatibility.
