NOVI, Michigan, June 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ –

SafeRide, the first automotive cybersecurity company to offer a holistic, anomaly detection and threat prevention solution, and Irdeto have formed a strategic partnership to provide OEMs and Tier-1 suppliers with the most advanced cybersecurity solution for connected and autonomous vehicles. The industry-first solution combines network security with software security on the ECU, allowing OEMs and Tier-1 suppliers to detect tampering and anomalies to protect against and respond to cyberthreats. This provides multi-layer protection for securing both the vehicle connectivity perimeter and the in-vehicle core layer from known and unknown cyberattacks, including zero-day threats and anomalies.

“Hackers deploy a number of tactics in order to gain root access to a device and compromise system security,” said Niels Haverkorn, General Manager, Connected Transport, Irdeto. “Our partnership with SafeRide provides a joint security solution that assumes system vulnerabilities have been exploited by an attacker, focusing on protecting a compromised system from misuse. By safeguarding critical files and data as well as preventing tampering of the ECU, we are providing OEMs and Tier-1s with the ability to secure vehicle software and telematics systems from damaging cyberattacks.”

SafeRide’s solution, vSentry™, provides the unique ability to uncover the onset of unknown threats and anomalies. Using an Artificial Intelligence engine, in addition to a robust zero false-positive security engine, the solution provides multi-layer protection for securing the connectivity perimeter and the in-vehicle core layer against unauthorized operations and access attempts. Irdeto’s Cloakware® for Connected Transport solution provides a highly effective, multi-layered, renewable and tunable approach to software protection to protect platforms against reverse engineering, tampering and automated attacks.

“We feel excited about the aggregated value that this solution brings to the automotive industry as automakers look to deploy connected vehicle applications, including Connectivity Gateways and IVI systems, with reliable cybersecurity support that leaves no room for mistakes,” said Yossi Vardi, SafeRide Co-Founder and CEO. “Irdeto’s Cloakware technology and industry leadership combined with SafeRide’s platform cybersecurity with in-vehicle big-data analytics enables OEMs to offset the security liability, while driving value add applications and new business models.”

SafeRide and Irdeto will showcase this joint security solution at TU Automotive in Novi, MI from 6-7 of June 2018. Please visit the Irdeto booth (B63) to learn more and receive a demo of the solution.
