Renovo and Argus Partner to Deliver First Cyber Secure Vehicles for Automated Mobility on Demand
CAMPBELL, CA and TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, September 14, 2017 : Renovo, a groundbreaking mobility software technology company, and Argus Cyber Security, the global leader in automotive cyber security, today announced a partnership to incorporate Argus' patented Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IDPS) technology into Renovo's AWare automated mobility operating system.
"Argus understands the vital nature of AMoD services to the future of mobility, and we're excited to play an integral role in ensuring these transportation networks are protected from cyber attacks. By integrating our cyber security expertise with Renovo's outstanding software capabilities, we are ensuring that cities and societies around the world will enjoy the benefits of this cutting edge technology," said Ofer Ben-Noon, Argus Cyber Security CEO and Co-Founder. "Imminent government legislation in the US mandates the inclusion of IDPS in any vehicle sold, imported, or even exhibited, underscoring the importance of automotive cyber security, and IDPS in particular. With the House of Representatives unanimously passing the bill last week, our partnership will render Renovo the very first to comply with the new cyber security measures for connected and autonomous vehicles."
Cyber security and privacy challenges in the automotive sector are growing significantly as vehicles become increasingly connected and automated and as the number of heterogeneous applications and services that run on the vehicle or interact with it rises. This partnership between Renovo and Argus - the first-ever initiative to introduce cyber security into AMoD - will draw on each company's core competencies to proactively deliver solutions to address these challenges.
"Argus' expertise in automotive cyber security and its deserved reputation as the global leader made it a natural fit and great partner for Renovo," explained Chris Heiser, Renovo CEO and Co-Founder. "Argus' patented IDPS technology will immediately help secure our development vehicles running AWare and do so for customer fleet deployments in 2018. We also look forward to a close collaboration with Argus on innovation for future cyber security solutions for the AMoD market."
