Marvell, NVIDIA and NXP Chose Argus’ Protection
6 February, 2019
Argus' Intrusion Detection and Prevention Software (IDPS) provides in-chip protection for Automotive networks and allows over-the-air (OTA) security updates
Argus Cyber Security is gaining momentum within semiconductors providers for in-vehicle networks, following the cooperation with Marvell, NVIDIA and NXP. Marvell chose Ethernet cyber protection solution from Argus Cyber Security to be integrated into its 88Q5050 automotive Ethernet switch. The integration of the Argus solution will provide Marvell’s 8-port Ethernet gigabit capacity switch with an enhanced level of security.
The solution also works with Argus Lifespan Protection to online services such as situational awareness, detection of emerging attacks with cross-fleet big-data analysis, and over-the-air (OTA) security updates. Based on ARM Cortex-M7, 250 MHz CPU, it utilizes advanced security features to guard against cyber threats like hacking and denial of service (DoS) attacks. Its main Applications include Gateways, In-Vehicle Infotainment and Advance Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).
Meanwhile, Argus is working closely with NVIDIA to add layers of cyber security defense to NVIDIA DRIVE, an AI computing platform designed to enable autonomous vehicles of all types. “Safety is our highest priority,” said Rishi Dhall, vice president of automotive business development at NVIDIA. “Argus’ demonstration on the NVIDIA DRIVE platform adds another layer of defense to our ongoing efforts to thwart potential cyber security attacks on autonomous vehicle platforms.”
Argus is also collaborating with NXP to bring to market a complete software-hardware solution to protect cars from cyber attacks. The combined solution aimed to enable car makers to comply with upcoming regulations that require equipping vehicles with the ability to detect and respond to cyber-security incidents. The solution consists of NXP’s Secure CAN Transceiver for a vehicle’s controller area network (CAN) bus, Argus’ Intrusion Detection and Prevention Software (IDPS) and Elektrobit’s Sync software, which enables continuous over-the-air (OTA) updates in the vehicle.
Founded in 2013 by Israeli cyber security experts, Argus is headquartered in Tel Aviv, Israel, has a team of more than 70 people and a comprehensive solution suites based on 38 granted and pending patents. In November 2017, Argus was acquired by Continental, a wholly owned subsidiary of Elektrobit (EB), for approximately $450 million. Today Argus is an independent company of Elektrobit, a provider of automotive software products and services.
