Canopy Security, the provider of a revolutionary IoT solution that monitors and protects pickup trucks against cargo theft, chose the Upstream Platform to secure its innovative IoT solution.

The increased connectivity provided by IoT devices enables innovative services like those provided by Canopy, but they also introduce cyberattack methods. Upstream’s cybersecurity detection and response platform is uniquely designed to monitor remote and large-scale attacks that enable malicious actors to jailbreak systems, jeopardize safety, and gain unauthorized access to Personal Identifiable Information (PII), including payment and billing information, drivers’ location, etc.

  • About Canopy Security Founded in 2022 and backed by Ford and ADT, Canopy is on a mission to end vehicle theft and revolutionize security with cutting-edge technology. With offices in both the U.S. and UK, the Pickup Cam is designed in Detroit and will be available in the U.S. for the industry’s highest-volume commercial and retail pickups. It will be easily installable by customers to successfully protect expensive work and recreational equipment. In 2024, Canopy plans to launch an industry-first, AI-Power security system with available professional monitoring for vans in the US and UK.

THE CHALLENGE:

Canopy faced a series of critical challenges in safeguarding their IoT solution:

  1. Sophisticated Threats: As the adoption of IoT systems in the transportation sector increased, so did the complexity and sophistication of cyber threats. Canopy needed to defend against advanced and evolving attack methods.
  2. Data Integrity: Ensuring the integrity of data exchanged within the IoT system was crucial. Canopy sought a solution that would guarantee the security of critical data streams and protect against unauthorized access.
  3. Operational Continuity: Maintaining uninterrupted operations is crucial to the integrity of Canopy’s IoT solution. They needed to ensure that their systems and solution would remain operational, even in the face of emerging cyber threats.

THE SOLUTION:

Upstream’s Detection and Response Platform 

Canopy chose Upstream’s cloud-based detection and response platform (XDR) for the broad mobility industry, covering vehicle manufacturers, fleet applications, and vehicle-related IoT systems. 

With zero hardware or software footprint in actual devices, the platform offers the flexibility to monitor a wide range of MQTT and telematics data sources, API transactions, and many additional data streams. The platform effectively ingests and enriches the data to create a digital twin that reflects the individual state of each mobility asset or application. 

The solution employs sophisticated machine learning based cybersecurity anomaly detection across the many layers of the mobility ecosystem, including IoT protocols, system logs, API transactions, telematics feeds and more, ensuring that the system is monitored and protected against cyber threats.

Upstream’s AutoThreat® PRO aids Canopy in proactively mitigating cyber risks and ensuring the most innovative and agile product delivery to their users. This ensures that Canopy’s products adhere to the highest cybersecurity standards, instilling trust and confidence in their customers.
