Upstream and BlackBerry IVY® Announce Joint Innovative Demo at CES 2024

Demo highlights significant cost savings and intelligent cybersecurity detection & response for connected and software-defined vehicles

Ann Arbor, MI – January 04, 2024 – Upstream Security, the leading provider of the cybersecurity detection and response platform for the mobility and transportation industry, today announced that it will showcase a demo of Upstream’s vehicle detection and response (V-XDR) platform and its integration with the BlackBerry IVY® connected vehicle data platform. The demo will take place at CES 2024 in BlackBerry’s booth in West Hall, #4224.

BlackBerry IVY® is an in-vehicle software platform that standardizes data from across all systems in the vehicle and enables machine-learning (ML) processing at the vehicle edge. As announced earlier in 2023, the partnership between IVY™ and Upstream’s cloud-native V-XDR platform, empowers original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to boost their connected vehicles’ cybersecurity posture and realize tremendous cost benefits.

Vito Giallorenzo, Senior Vice President and General Manager, BlackBerry IVY® stated: “We’re proud to have Upstream as a partner and look forward to showcasing the joint demo that illustrates real-world cybersecurity attack scenarios on connected vehicles. Our combined offering will allow automotive, software-defined vehicle manufacturers, and transportation and mobility decision makers to reassess what’s possible when it comes to smarter, in-vehicle data processing and enhanced investigation to IVY synthetic sensors when there is a cybersecurity concern.”

Arnon Shafir, Upstream’s VP Business Development stated: “Our partnership with BlackBerry IVY® is a force multiplier. Upstream’s purpose-built automotive V-XDR platform working together with the IVY platform will enable automotive manufacturers to improve insight generation and enhance decision making when it comes to cyber threats. OEMs will now be able to stream data that focuses on potential threats and cybersecurity related events, thus reducing their cloud connectivity and storage costs by up to 80 percent.”

About the Upstream Security and BlackBerry IVY® Demo

The joint demo will showcase two simulated automotive cybersecurity attacks that are identified by Upstream by using BlackBerry IVY® to process signals in-vehicle. Visitors will be shown how vehicle data is collected, normalized and processed within the vehicle to create quality actionable insights to accelerate automotive cybersecurity incident detection, investigation and response and, ultimately, mitigate threats.

Demo scenarios feature:
1. Identifying anomalies and performance improvements in vehicle systems, such as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), by analyzing vehicle signal data and comparing insights across the vehicle fleet
2. Detecting a black hat attack by monitoring for abnormal battery drain in electric vehicles (EVs) by correlating excessive application programming interface (API) requests with vehicle behavior
