HARMAN and Airbiquity Release Automotive Grade Intrusion Detection Solution

By

HARMAN International Industries, a connected transportation technology company for automotive, consumer and enterprise markets, and Airbiquity, a connected vehicle services developer, have announced what they say is the first automotive grade end-to-end intrusion detection system for connected vehicles.

We’ve seen over and over that Connected Vehicles are only getting more vulnerable to attack as they become more connected and powered by software. Now, these two companies have teamed up to combine HARMAN's Intrusion Detection and Prevention System inside the vehicle with Airbiquity’s cloud-based Choreo service delivery platform and Software & Data Management solution. Together, the companies claim their solutions offer a robust connected vehicle security threat detection and response capability.

“Car hacking is a very real threat that will continue to increase as we move towards greater connectivity and autonomous vehicles, with more and more new technologies becoming part of the Internet of Things,” said Saar Dickman, VP, Automotive Cyber Security, HARMAN. “Following years of research in developing ECUSHIELD, we're delighted to be working with Airbiquity, a likeminded partner, to offer the industry the first end-to-end IDS solution that combines our company's embedded capabilities with Airbiquity’s comprehensive back-end software and data management solution. Our mutual goal is to help our customers in ensuring vehicles are safe and secure.”

The HARMAN software is designed to provide continuous security threat monitoring and identification for internal vehicle networks and log security intrusions locally. Once a problem is logged, Airbiquity’s solution collects the information and transfers it to the cloud, where customers can assess and execute remediation strategies.

“Integrating HARMAN’s ECUSHIELD technology with Airbiquity’s Software & Data Management offering further strengthens our ability to deliver advanced, reliable, and secure end-to-end connected vehicle services to our automotive customers,” said Kamyar Moinzadeh, President and CEO, Airbiquity. “Given the high priority of vehicle security we believe threat detection must be a mandatory component of any connected vehicle solution, and Airbiquity is delighted to partner with HARMAN to jointly leverage our technology assets and meet this critical need.”
