Kaymera Technologies and Argus Cyber Security to deliver a joint cyber security solution to protect vehicle components running Android OS.

Connected vehicles are becoming prevalent, with an increasing number of vehicle manufacturers introducing Google’s Android infotainment systems into their vehicle fleets. With this trend comes an increase in the cyber risk exposure of the entire connected vehicle ecosystem. To address this threat, regulations and standards, such as UNR 155, ISO/SAE 21434, and GB/T, are calling for vehicle manufacturers to detect, prevent, and respond to cyber attacks, vulnerabilities, and threats throughout the vehicle lifecycle.
“Argus is dedicated to mitigating the security risks of the connected mobility ecosystem ” said Ido Ben Ami, VP R&D, Argus Cyber Security. “Automotive cyber security solutions for Google Android systems are essential to this mission. I am delighted to have the opportunity to co-innovate with Kaymera, a leader in this area, to provide comprehensive automotive grade Android protection”‘.
Argus and Kaymera have joined forces to offer vehicle manufacturers a comprehensive AI-based solution to detect, prevent, and respond to attacks targeting electronic control units (ECUs) running Android operating systems. The solution will send alerts to Argus Vehicle Security Operation Center Solution for further analysis and response.
Kaymera’s Android threat detection technology relies on heuristics based approach to Identify & and classify new threats based on their behaviour and functionality. The module detects attacks in progress to ensure the driver’s safety as well as data privacy.
Argus delivers vehicle manufacturers a broad range of advanced onboard and offboard cyber security products. Argus products have been selected to secure over 65 million vehicles across 19 production projects.
