Solution Integrating VicOne Cybersecurity Software with Clientron’s ECU Hardware Prevents Attacks on In-Vehicle Infotainment From Reaching Other Critical EV-Bus Systems
VicOne, an automotive cybersecurity solutions leader, announced today a partnership with Clientron on an in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) solution with integrated cybersecurity for electric-vehicle (EV) buses.à
VicOne’s cybersecurity software is integrated with Clientron’s electronic control unit (ECU) to prevent cyber-attacks by which an EV bus’s IVI system is penetrated to manipulate vital systems such as brakes, acceleration and navigation—or even passengers’ personally identifiable information (PII) via on-board internet connections. The integrated solution aligns with emerging automotive-industry compliance requirements, such as the ISO/SAE 21434.
“There are more and more EV buses on the road around the world, and not many have cybersecurity protection in IVI,” said Edward Tsai, vice president of strategic partnership, VicOne. “Our work with Clientron has resulted in a fully functional IVI system with comprehensive cybersecurity that is easily integrated on EV buses. We look forward to bringing our combined capabilities to providers around the world.”
Clientron, founded in 1983, is a leading automotive electronics manufacturer which provides highly integrated embedded solutions to clients worldwide. The company’s IVI system delivers functions including audio and video entertainment, navigation, mobile-phone interconnection, vehicle data, safe driving and vehicle management. It provides a user-friendly and enjoyable driving experience through a communication network and multi-display system interaction.
VicOne’s integrated cybersecurity software detects constantly evolving cyber-attacks and initiates countermeasures to avert or isolate and limit harm. The VicOne solution monitors IVI app performance, including power consumption and storage usage, to detect any abnormality. The EV-bus operator is alerted if an app consumes unnecessary resources or drains the battery excessively, ensuring smooth operation of the IVI system and maintaining driver, passenger and vehicle safety without unexpected interruptions or distractions.
“VicOne provides a top-of-the-line solution that our customers can trust for robust and future-ready cybersecurity coverage,” said Kelly Wu, President & CEO, Clientron. “Integrating VicOne’s capabilities translates into a tremendous value-add for our ECUs for the EV-bus industry. We are committed to producing user-friendly, secured, reliable and durable products for the automotive industry, and this partnership with VicOne bolsters our efforts.”
