Protect vehicle software infrastructure at scale

Sonatus Guard protects connected vehicles against known and emerging threats at scale.

Comprehensive security solution to protect software components from cyber security threats and ensure trust

comprehensive security

Single automotive cybersecurity solution provides security services for vehicles with intrusion detection and prevention across vehicle networks, ECUs, and communications modules to protect against software vulnerabilities.

Ensure compliance with data protection by proactively responding to cybersecurity attacks.

respond to threats

Utilize the cloud-based Vehicle Security Operations Center to detect known and emerging threats early, and respond with instant policy updates to mitigate such threats.

Scalable cybersecurity services can safeguard a fleet and speed development of new protections.

Scale to
millions of vehicles

Early detection on a few vehicles can be used to create automated mitigation policies that can be dynamically applied across a large connected car fleet.

Frequently asked questions?

Automotive cybersecurity is growing in importance as vulnerabilities for connected cars are increasing and more systems inside a vehicle are connected. Significant new regulation for the automotive industry has emerged and Sonatus Guard ensures compliance with critical regulations such as UN R155 and UN R156. We will continue to focus on compliance with standards and requirements from the industry as the cybersecurity landscape continues to evolve.

Other solutions maintain threat databases to secure vehicle systems. The industry cannot rely on one company alone to provide guidance on automotive cybersecurity. Sonatus Guard is an important tool for automotive cybersecurity. Its focus is to complement the technologies from other industry leaders to secure against vulnerabilities to automotive systems. New approaches to machine learning can also help penetration testing and to identify new cybersecurity threats.

The automotive cybersecurity landscape is constantly evolving and one solution alone cannot mitigate all the known and emerging threats. Sonatus Guard provides critical in-vehicle services to complement existing and new security solutions from other industry leaders, especially ones that maintain threat intelligence in the cloud and apply emerging AI and machine learning approaches to uncover potential risks early.

It is critical for car manufacturers to ensure customer trust that they will guard sensitive data from new vulnerabilities. Automotive cybersecurity solutions like Sonatus Guard offer a critical capability to protect vehicle data and also respond quickly when threats develop. Existing solutions require weeks or months to deploy a solution when a risk is found. Our unique technology with cloud connectivity allows the development and deployment of cybersecurity fixes in hours to protect vehicle data.

Automotive cybersecurity solutions are required for all vehicles, not just electric vehicles but also conventional internal combustion engines (ICE) and hybrids. Automotive OEMs can protect connected vehicles of all types from cyber security threats using Sonatus Guard. Since vehicles of all engine types can be a connected car, and as vehicle software is increasing in embedded systems, software vulnerabilities can emerge across all vehicles.

Modern connected cars contain many subsystems that are at risk of automotive cybersecurity threats. In the past, the threat landscape has focused on the infotainment systems where modern vehicles’ connection to the internet exposes risks to automotive cybersecurity. As more vehicle systems become connected, such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and battery management systems (BMS), and as connected services like remote diagnostics and smart mobility proliferate, the threat analysis and mitigation for connected cars needs to expand.

This includes protecting components with functional safety requirements using a risk based approach. Automotive cybersecurity solutions like Sonatus Guard can be an important tool for the automotive industry to protect and root cause threats to vehicle fleets.
