Automotive Security Software Seeks to Prevent Cyberattacks in the Connected Car

07 June 2016

Karamba Security has introduced its Carwall in-security software platform targeted at keeping vehicles safe from cyberattacks looking to exploit security bugs inside a connected car.

The U.S. government says connected cars may have hundreds to thousands of hidden security vulnerabilities that hackers can exploit in order to gather information on passengers, compromise safe operation or even take control of the vehicle. Karamba says Carwall immediately detects and prevents attacks by sealing the car’s controller software.
