Let the competition for “securing the car” begin!

I didn’t actually want to write such a post, but several press releases drew my attention.

So, the competition to protect the car has begun. Big players are now on the hunt for customers. But, when you talk to customers like Daimler, VW, BMW, Nissan and others, the discussions  will take a while.

I will maintain the list below with technologies I see in categories.

Please note that I write here only vendors that actually have a technology that mitigates threats in the cars and not just any vendor that talks generic about IoT or embedded solutions.

I also exclude solutions which address only encryption and/or authentication because this is not enough to protect vehicles.

Feel free to contact me if you see a vendor is not here and it should be.
