With the rising scale and complexity of vehicle software, also known as the “data center on wheels,” attack surfaces and cyberattacks in the automotive industry are increasing.  AVL and Cybellum provide automated vulnerability management aimed at meeting these new challenges that the automotive industry is facing, such as driving innovation and accelerating development in the face of constant cyber threats and increased regulatory pressure. To accomplish this, Cybellum’s Product Security Platform will be integrated into AVL’s Cyber Security Ecosystem.

The Cybellum Product Security Platform continuously scans vehicle software for security flaws and data breaches, dealing with uncertainty from design to post-production. Cybellum’s Cyber Digital TwinsTM system enables programmers with a blueprint of the software in their product components, allowing them to quickly identify vulnerabilities.

“We are excited about this partnership,” says Gianluca Vitale, Global Business Segment Manager at AVL.”The combination of AVL’s and Cybellum’s toolchains enables our customers to efficiently manage vulnerabilities within many software versions for different control units all the way down to a single-vehicle variant. We can offer our customers an optimal solution for safeguarding their certification-relevant processes. We cover the entire process from development to calibration to release deployment within each single vehicle variant.”

AVL and Cybellum’s joint offering allows vehicle manufacturers and component suppliers to set up the vehicle and component-related security projects, automate risk assessment and mitigation, and oversee work related to certification across the value chain. The combination of AVL CRETATM and Cybellum’s Product Security Platform permits customers to perform vulnerability detection governance across application systems and parameter sets generated during development, production, or even vehicle fleet deployment.

Eddie Lazebnik, Global Partnerships Director at Cybellum, “We are delighted to partner with AVL. AVL’s vast know-how, experience, and product offering coupled with Cybellum’s expertise and a lifecycle approach to cybersecurity is a force multiplier for our customers. Together, we will enable manufacturers and their suppliers to build quality automotive products that will be secure and compliant from design to post-production.”
