The solution will be presented at an NTT Israel event during the Cybertech conference next week
Japanese multinational IT giant NTT Data Corporation has selected C2A Security, an Israeli developer of an automotive-grade DevSecOps platform, for the first project of its new Global Automotive Security Test Center. C2A Security will collaborate with Marelli, a top automotive sector supplier.
The solution will be presented at an NTT Israel event, which will take place during the Cybertech Global TLV conference next week in Tel Aviv.
C2A Security’s selection was facilitated by NTT Innovation Laboratory Israel (NTT Israel), which works to integrate Israeli technologies into the services and products developed by NTT, locate products that can be distributed and marketed to NTT’s customers worldwide, and find business collaborations and investment opportunities in Israeli companies.
Launched in Italy, the center will deliver security tests on connected cars to secure and protect the systems of such vehicles from cyberattacks for clients in all 50+ countries where the group operates.
"We want to apply our expertise in cybersecurity to the connected car sector," said Marco Garelli, Head of Automotive at NTT DATA Italy. “Thanks to our Global Automotive Security Test Center, NTT DATA will be an international reference point to protect connected cars from cyber-attacks and ensure the drivers' safety."
In line with the new Automotive Cybersecurity European regulations, the test center offers innovative solutions to protect connected vehicles against cyberattacks, and will be able to respond to the ever-changing cyber threat landscape.
The solution involves the automatic generation of "System Level Fuzz Testing," a technology aimed at uncovering bugs and vulnerabilities for car ECU software. According to NTT, the project covers anomaly detection of communication between ECUs and showcases innovation with artificial intelligence algorithms that can identify any attacks in progress and send alerts to a control center.
“NTT DATA is a strong partner that trusts our holistic approach to protect connected vehicles as the right solution for their new global test center,” said Roy Fridman, C2A Security’s CEO. “We’re thrilled to offer NTT customers a seamless and automated system-level validation tool in order to find ahead of time critical bugs and vulnerabilities.”
"The NTT Israel Innovation Lab was established to promote and find Israeli startups for collaborations and investments.” said Noa Asher, CEO of the NTT Israel Innovation Lab. “This project is an extraordinary opportunity for NTT Data to become a leading service provider in the connected cars arena based on an Israeli technology."
NTT Israel focuses on the fields of cyber security, digital health, artificial intelligence and robotics. Its core goal is to integrate Israeli technologies into the services and products developed by NTT, as well as to identify products and technologies that can be distributed and marketed to the group’s customers worldwide.
