C2A Security and NXP create cybersecurity solution for cars

C2A Security, an automotive cybersecurity company, has announced a comprehensive automotive security solution developed in collaboration with NXP, the microprocessor enterprise. 

The solution combines C2A Security’s digital defence software and NXP´s secure controller area network transceivers to help car manufacturers to protect their vehicles from cyberattacks.

“C2A is looking to provide the automotive industry with comprehensive security solutions, covering all relevant attack vectors,” said Nathaniel Meron, chief product and marketing officer at C2A Security. “Our solution approach to security with NXP is vital for manufacturers to ensure their passengers’ safety.”

Commenting, Timo van Roermund, head of automotive security at NXP, said, “NXP’s secure CAN Transceiver is a robust hardware complement to C2A software solutions, one that aims to deliver a powerful security solution for increasingly connected cars.”

Innovation in the car industry has provided opportunities for several tech companies. For instance, the insurance firm Intact Financial invested into the self-driving car developer Voyage last year to create an insurance solution to the industry.

Zego, the InsurTech firm, partnered with car-subscription platform Drover in August to provide flexible insurance into Drover’s sign-up processes.
