AURORA, Ont. — Magna International Inc. and Argus Cyber Security Ltd. are partnering to deliver a security solution that will prevent cyber attacks on automotive connectivity platforms.

Magna, the global automotive components manufacturer based in Aurora, Ont., says
Argus’s Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) is a ready-to-embed, cyber security technology for automobiles and aftermarket connectivity platforms that protects a vehicle’s critical onboard systems from being hacked. It seamlessly integrates into any product line with no changes required to the vehicle’s architecture.

“With the connected car market growing, the need to have a protected environment and secure data is becoming more urgent and we are taking a proactive approach in delivering a solution to our customers,” said Swamy Kotagiri, Magna’s chief technology officer.

Magna will contribute its range of automotive electronic systems, as well as safety-critical system design expertise to the collaboration while Argus will delivers its IPS solution and cloud-based monitoring service.

Argus is an automotive cyber security innovator based in Tel-Aviv, Israel.
