AUTOCRYPT, an industry-leading automotive cybersecurity and mobility solutions company, announced its partnership with Hitachi Solutions, Ltd., a global IT service provider and system integrator. The two companies have agreed to provide joint offerings and consulting services covering V2X and in-vehicle systems security to Japanese automotive OEMs and tier suppliers.
The two companies already have a history of collaboration; AUTOCRYPT has been offering its V2X security solution with the option of integrating its security library with Hitachi Solution’s V2X Middleware Platform. The formalization of the partnership signifies the continued success of past projects, and seeks to further expand the scope of collaboration beyond V2X to embedded vehicular systems.
As vehicles become increasingly software-defined, cybersecurity for in-vehicle systems has become an integral part of automotive production and regulatory compliance. AUTOCRYPT’s in-vehicle systems security solution helps OEMs exceed cybersecurity requirements with open-source license management, fuzzing, penetration testing, and threat mitigation, while Hitachi Solutions, Ltd. offers a range of compliance consulting that covers all facets of vehicle production. The partnership will provide an optimized range of solutions for both companies’ clients to meet production requirements.
“The Japanese automotive industry is one of the largest in the world and is currently undergoing a major transition to a more electrified and software-defined future,” said AUTOCRYPT’s CEO, Daniel ES Kim. “Through this partnership with Hitachi Solutions, we are excited to offer a more comprehensive V2X and in-vehicle systems security solution with an enhanced support network for our existing and potential clients in Japan.”
As a global leader in automotive cybersecurity, AUTOCRYPT’s goal is not confined to helping clients stay secure and compliant, but to also maximize efficiency by streamlining cybersecurity engineering into the production process. Its newly developed AutoCrypt Security Fuzzer for HIL enables fuzz testing in hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulations, greatly reducing vehicle development costs.
