P3 SPARQ IVI to use VicOne cybersecurity solution

STUTTGART, GERMANY, September 5, 2023/ — P3 digital services, provider of In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) systems, and VicOne, an automotive cybersecurity solutions announced their partnership. This integration enables cybersecurity features of the VicOne Security app to be used in SPARQ OS IVI ecosystem.

VicOne’s Smart cockpit solution provides a full range of cybersecurity protection functions for infotainment. It is enabled by the SPARQ OS platform, which is based on Android Automotive OS. It prevents personally identifiable information (PII) and privacy breach through risky apps or browsers, thus safeguarding vehicle users. In parallel it blocks the installation of backdoors, thereby averting remote manipulation of information on the IVI system. Furthermore it informs the driver about resource-intensive apps to enhance smart cockpit driving experience and safety. It is promptly notify customers as soon as we detect a data breach or insecure solutions, enabling them to take action and protect themselves before it’s too late. The combined solution of SPARQ OS and VicOne enables users to stay alert. They can benefit from 24/7 PII and privacy breach surveillance.

The automotive cybersecurity solution continually assesses privacy risks. It includes protecting email addresses, bank account numbers, credit card details, social security numbers, and beyond. It also safeguards against data leaks and unauthorized access. Furthermore, it identify Vulnerable Android Automotive apps that employ insecure communication or data storage methods. Future infiltration attempts are prevented in the infotainment system. The result is a safe and secure IVI environment, with content protection for driver and all the vehicle’s passengers.

OEMs that choose to deploy SPARQ OS IVI do not need to develop or invest in separate cybersecurity measures. They, and their customers, can benefit from IVI-specialized VicOne protection right out-of-the-box. Software-enabled services represent OEMs’ next opportunity for generating revenue. But providers should first protect customers’ data privacy through smart cockpit protection solutions, so as to win customers’ trust.

“With cars becoming supercomputers on wheels, this leaves certain security gaps that attackers can use to victimize car makers, their suppliers, and car owners. These vulnerabilities have far-reaching consequences for vehicle operation and vehicle security. Thus, the combination of comprehensive threat intelligence with network security expertise is more critical than ever. Encased in the connected car experience is the ability to protect users against potential cyber-attacks,” said Edward Tsai, Vice President of Strategic Partnership at VicOne. “We’re delighted to partner with P3 and join the increasingly popular SPARQ ecosystem to deliver future-ready always-on protection for SPARQ users everywhere,” he added.
