SafeRide Technologies <https://saferide.io/> , the first automotive cybersecurity company to offer a multi-layer deterministic and heuristic anomaly detection and threat prevention solution, today announced the launch of vXRay, a behavioral profiling and anomaly detection technology for connected vehicles’ Security Operation Centers (SOC). vXRay can be seamlessly integrated into customers’ connected vehicles’ SOC independently of vehicle architecture or ECU sourcing. It can help customers uncover zero-day vulnerabilities, provide early detection of vehicle malfunctions and flag misuse and abuse problems.
vXRay uses advanced, unsupervised machine learning paradigms in a fully autonomous process to establish the normal behavior of the vehicle without dependencies or previous knowledge of ECU properties and protocols. Once the behavioral baseline is established, the machine learning models can accurately detect, categorize and flag any abnormal behavior and report it to the connected vehicles’ SOC for further analysis.
“Vehicle data carries immense untapped value. Existing solutions for anomaly detection rely on in-vehicle analysis of signatures and error codes based on partial data and using limited computational power. OEMs are receiving limited and filtered information about their fleets resulting in suboptimal operational performance and exposure to zero-day cybersecurity attacks and safety risks,” said Hilik Stein, CTO and Co-founder of SafeRide. “SafeRide’s technology enhances the effectiveness of the connected vehicles’ SOC by integrating the ability to analyze raw vehicle data and significantly amplify its detection power.”
“The security measures installed in vehicles today are critical, but they can only detect and prevent known attacks. With ever-growing cybersecurity threats, OEMs need to assume that security breaches are inevitable and install intrusion detection capabilities that can detect unknown threats and facilitate remediation,” said Gil Reiter, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing at SafeRide. “Upgrading vehicle platforms with advanced intrusion detection systems can be costly and impact the vehicle release schedule, leaving fleets vulnerable. SafeRide’s vXRay technology provides OEMs with immediate cutting-edge intrusion detection capabilities with minimal or no modifications to the vehicle platform.”
SafeRide’s vXRay technology was proven to effectively detect all cyberattacks and vehicle malfunctions in multiple vehicle models in customer testing, and is being implemented by several major automotive vendors as part of their 2019 security strategies.
