Trend Micro launched VicOne, a dedicated security solution for today’s and tomorrow’s electric vehicles and connected cars. With over 400 million connected cars expected to be on the road globally by 2025, there is plenty to entice threat actors. This innovation is the latest addition in Trend Micro’s long history of incubating successful business ideas to bring the best security offerings to market. Trend Micro is a global cybersecurity leader, providing a powerful set of advanced threat defense techniques optimized for environments such as AWS, Microsoft, and Google, as well as centralized visibility for better, faster detection and response.
Eva Chen, CEO, and co-founder of Trend Micro commented, “At Trend Micro, we are driven by the desire to secure the connected world. As we focus on this mission, it is imperative that we free ourselves to explore the various new business models that fit the new supply chain. With VicOne, we anticipated an urgent OEM need for enhanced automotive cybersecurity. Built with the best of Trend Micro innovation, it will offer tremendous value to the industry.”
Electric vehicles are becoming increasingly vulnerable to remote digital threats in a variety of new attack scenarios. OEMs and suppliers must implement comprehensive cybersecurity to safeguard their ecosystems and comply with the new United Nations regulation, WP.29 (UN – R155).
Soren Lau, General Manager of Asia and EMEA, IoT Partner Solutions at Microsoft stated, “Cybersecurity is an integral part of the electric vehicle (EV) ecosystem. Microsoft provides a comprehensive and open platform service with a zero-trust mindset. We look forward to working with Trend Micro and VicOne to enable end-to-end security solutions for telematics and EVs through Microsoft Cloud and AI features within Azure IoT services.”
To strengthen its commitment Trend Micro has joined the Scalable Open Architecture for Embedded Edge (SOAFEE) initiative, which aims to provide a cloud-native architecture for the creation of software-defined vehicles, and has forged a strategic partnership with MIH Consortium, an open EV platform alliance led by Foxconn. Trend Micro maintains a strong position in the vehicle supply chain as industry stakeholders invest more time and resources in cybersecurity compliance.
Dipti Vachani, SVP and GM, Automotive and IoT Line of Business, Arm said, “The software-defined vehicle is the future of the global automotive industry and a driving force in accelerating the development of innovative automotive technology applications. By joining other leaders across the automotive industry as a new member of SOAFEE, VicOne is bringing important expertise in security standards to help ensure a safer future for the automotive industry.”
