21 January, 2019 – Arilou Information Security Technologies, a supplier of high-end cyber security solutions for the automotive industry, part of NNG Group, and STMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, are working together on the integration of Arilou’s Intrusion Detection and Prevention system (IDPS) Software solution into ST’s SPC58 Chorus series of 32-bit automotive microcontrollers (MCUs). The companies will share a demonstration of their efforts in a private suite at CES 2019, Jan 8-10 in Las Vegas.
The project to produce a fully integrated solution that addresses the emerging request for protection against intrusion via communication buses in Automotive Body and Gateway applications aims to deliver strong security to fleet managers and consumers.
“This development work allows us to see our software solution tailored to specific devices and applications in the automotive sector,” said Ziv Levi, CEO and founder of Arilou. “As automotive cybersecurity pioneers, working on this project with ST has allowed us to be among the first to take real steps on a path leading to the fully secured vehicle.”
Advanced security solutions require a multi-layer approach where both hardware and software monitor the data streams to detect communication anomalies. The combination of the Security Engine embedded in ST’s SPC58 Chorus series of automotive MCUs with the capability of Arilou’s IDPS software to detect traffic anomalies, provides a state-of-the art cyber-security solution.
“Securing the connected car is a multi-layer project and as a leading supplier of automotive processing solutions, ST is, and must continue to be, at the center of efforts to monitor systems, detect intrusions, and protect against those intrusions,” said Luca Rodeschini, Head of Automotive Strategy and Microcontroller Business Unit, STMicroelectronics. “ST’s product, technology, and market leadership requires us to work with security experts like Arilou to anticipate and meet cybersecurity challenges head on.”
Israel-based Arilou, part of NNG Group, is the leading provider of pioneering cyber security solutions to the automotive industry. Its software IDPS security solution offers 100% detection and prevention rate and zero false positives, and has been independently tested by OEMs and institutions such as the University of Michigan Transport Research Institute (UMTRI). The company believes that with a holistic approach and multi-layered solutions, full protection of the vehicles will become a reality.
