New Joint Venture to Screen Threats to Automotive Cybersecurity
DENSO Corporation will establish a joint venture with NRI SecureTechnologies, Ltd. (NRI) that will detect and diagnose the security risks of in-vehicle electronic products. The new cybersecurity company, named NDIAS, Ltd., is equally owned by DENSO and NRI and will be officially established in December 2018.
NDIAS will harness DENSO's expertise in in-vehicle quality and cybersecurity technology development and NRI's proprietary machine learning technology to protect consumers against the rising threat of cyberattacks in the automotive industry. The partnership will offer integrated security diagnosis and consulting services for in-vehicle electronic products from the vehicle development phase to the actions required after mass production.
Automated driving and connected vehicles will soon become commonplace and, as a result, various shared technologies and services will be linked within vehicles. Because of this, international standards for automotive cybersecurity requirements must be established due to imminent threats such as hacking.
New threats in cybersecurity continue to evolve and require assessment and diagnosis by a dedicated and trained third party who understands the minds of the attackers. The DENSO-NRI new joint venture will underpin the rapidly evolving digitalized automotive industry with its ground-breaking cybersecurity technologies to help achieve a safe and secure future of seamless mobility.
