TEL AVIV, Israel, December 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
SafeRide Technologies, the first automotive cybersecurity company to offer a multi-layer deterministic and heuristic anomaly detection and threat prevention solution, has collaborated with Ixia, a Keysight Business, to test SafeRide's vSentry™ vehicle cybersecurity solution using the BreakingPoint applications and network security test platform. The BreakingPoint test platform simulates unauthorized data activity within the vehicle, while SafeRide's technology detects these attempts, contains the activity, and prevents any interference or data loss.
As the number of connected vehicles grows, cyber threats to the automotive industry are rapidly increasing. It is critical to secure any connection to a vehicle. Without proper cybersecurity measures, OEMs, fleets and customers are left vulnerable to zero-day attacks and financial and safety risks.
SafeRide's vSentry™ multilayer cybersecurity solution monitors all external communication to the vehicle, in-vehicle network traffic, and ECU software in real-time, and provides a zero false-positive firewall, Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IDPS), and access control to all ECU resources. SafeRide's vXRay™ advanced AI Machine Learning and Deep Learning technology uncovers zero-day vulnerabilities and allows for remediation by updating real-time access control policies over-the-air.
It can be challenging to test the level of efficiency and operation of leading cybersecurity solutions, such as SafeRide's vSentry. To address this challenge, the BreakingPoint test solution simulates real-world traffic, distributed denial of service (DDoS), exploits, malware and fuzzing attacks. BreakingPoint simulates both good and bad traffic to validate and optimize the network under the most realistic conditions. BreakingPoint is used to trigger unauthorized data exfiltration activity, while SafeRide's vSentry solution detects the exfiltration attempt with vehicle profiling and anomaly detection algorithms, and applies automatic bandwidth control policies to contain the incident and prevent interference and data loss.
"We are thrilled to be working with a leader in network security validation testing, and feel confident that this collaboration will further our mission of providing customers with the most reliable detection and threat prevention solution on the market," said Danny Leob, Vice President, Alliances and Partners at SafeRide. "As cyber threats advance, we continue to test and enhance our solution to be able to withstand any infiltration."
"As the automotive industry increasingly relies on connected vehicles, it is critical that the industry works to ensure the security of automotive communications," said Nimrod Kravicas, Director оf Business Development, EMEA at Keysight's Ixia Solutions Group. "We look forward to working with SafeRide on creating valuable test plans, focused on real-world application traffic simulation, both malicious and legitimate, to validate how SafeRide's technology behaves under real-world conditions."
SafeRide demonstrated its vSentry solution on Ixia's BreakingPoint test platform at AutonomousTech in Israel.
