Trillium Secure Inc. has announced SecureIoT will be deployed in Tokyo, Japan in April. This represents the world’s maiden platform to provide round the clock connected car Cyber-Security as a Service (C- SaaS) facility. The project will lead to bring together strategic go-to-market partners which includes automotive manufacturers, insurance providers, electronic component suppliers, and commercial fleet owners. Likewise C-SaaS deployments are planned for North America and Europe for Q3 and Q4 respectively.
This would mark the beginning that petabytes of real data, gathered from fleets of commercial and public vehicles will be employed to impart training to machine learning cyber-security medium in order to safeguard vehicles deployed across the world. These agents play the role of sleepless artificial intelligence (AI) sentinels to protect connected and autonomous automobiles from malevolent eavesdropping, life threatening remote control, or theft or far worse.
Project Planned for Simultaneous Deployment in US, Japan in January 2020
The 10-month project piloted in Japan is aimed to provide critical learning cycles that are needed to optimize the SecureIoT platform, its analytics engine and machine learning algorithms. The commercial deployment for Japan and the U.S. are planned simultaneously for January 2020, to protect a combined fleet of 3.5 million vehicles.
The C-SaaS business model works as a solution for three problems auto makers face due to cyber security; firstly, it provides the required security R&D know-how for hardening vehicles against hacking, which includes a counter measure equipment for a real-time response to zero-day exploits; secondly, helps transform automotive security and safety to reduce high cost incurred by auto manufacturers, thereby manifesting into a compelling source of recurring revenue; and lastly, buffers auto makers from liability of a zero-day attack.
