The company decided to expand the security solutions in the wake of increased market demand for car connectivity and security solutions.
Aurgus said it provides a US government tested, ready-to-embed, cyber security solution suite for automobiles and aftermarket connectivity platforms such as OBD-II devices.
“The projects we have completed and others we are now collaborating on with leading car manufacturers and industry players prove that cyber security has become a top priority for the industry’s key decision makers,” said Ofer Ben-Noon, Co-Founder and CEO at Argus.
Argus claimed its solutions prevent a vehicle’s critical systems from being hacked and are integrated into any vehicle production line, with no architecture changes needed.
