Volvo and Upstream Security collaborate for safer connected vehicles
Transformation within the transport solutions industry is powered by rapid technical development within, connected, autonomous and electric vehicles. But increased connectivity often results in a heightened risk of cyber security attacks. Volvo and Upstream Security collaborate to create even safer connections.
Climate change, congested cities, hazardous road and working conditions call for future transportation technology and systems solutions that are safer, cleaner and more efficient. “We have to co-create for more sustainable transport systems”, says Tommy Hansson Strand VP Volvo Group Connected Solutions Innovation Lab. “We keep close contact with start-ups, to evaluate the future value of new technologies and business models. Bringing these insights and opportunities back home is one way how we can support the rest of the Volvo Group.”
The collaboration is a direct result of the Volvo Group’s partnership with DRIVE, an innovation hub that focuses on disruptive start-ups in the Israeli mobility sector. They create effective collaborations between hand-picked start-ups and the hub’s corporate partners, one of which is Volvo. “The partnership approach is becoming ever more important, and the result of the collaboration between Upstream and Volvo can be beneficial to many people”.
The partnership with Upstream Security is truly a success story and a perfect fit for Volvo now kicking off the global commercial corporation. Even if the security is high as it is, there are always opportunities to make it even better. Upstream Security provides automotive cybersecurity solutions designed specifically to protect connected vehicles from cyber threats. “We are responsible for more than one million customer assets that are connected to our systems, and we are continuously seeking opportunities that can increase the level of protection from cyber security threats”, says Tobias Sternvik, Enterprise Architecture at Volvo Group Connected Solutions, the global organization that leads the development of the Volvo Group’s connected services and solutions. “
And Upstream Security mission is clear. “Our mission is to protect every connected vehicle and smart mobility service on the planet. The collaboration with Volvo will take us even further towards our mission. With our data-driven, cloud-based platform, we can provide Volvo with the capabilities to accomplish secured connected vehicles,” says Yoav Levy, co-founder and CEO Upstream Security.
