Identify security issues on vehicles and gain recommendations to improve the systems at any stage of automotive development

The Challenge 

In 2023 critical and high vulnerabilities [in the automotive industry] accounted for nearly 80% of total Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs), up from 71% in 2022.1

Today’s automotive industry has reached a critical inflection point. Cybersecurity incidents have grown significantly in frequency as well as impact. The ability to identify security issues on vehicles at any stage of automotive development such as vehicle manufacturers, component suppliers, or OEM and aftermarket software and hardware providers is more important than ever before.

The technological design of a standard car contains multiple electronic control units (ECUs), with some luxury models containing hundreds of these units. Each one of these systems can contain up to 100 million lines of code. In an industry where a single mistake puts lives on the line, it is critical that organizations take a strategic approach to automotive cybersecurity – and related systems and applications – before malicious adversaries can cause harm.
