VicOne, an automotive cybersecurity solution provider established by cloud security leader Trend Micro, announced a partnership with Delta Electronics, a global leader in power and energy management solutions. The partnership will empower Delta’s customers and EV charging partners to strengthen data security practices and comply with international standards, enabling critical business opportunities in international markets.
Edward Tsai, Vice President of Strategic Partnership at VicOne: “The global EV market is in a phase of rapid development and becoming a regular target of hackers as a result. The battle has already begun in the industrial chain where EV power infrastructure is a critical but easily ignored element. Building an ecosystem with cybersecurity in mind is crucial to achieving a safer and more competitive future for the automotive supply chain.”
The global EV market is booming, and the US and EU have announced plans to include EV charging networks in national infrastructure. As the smart connector between the vehicle and network, the charging pile functions as an energy distributor, a remote monitor and meter – as well as a target for cybercriminals. To ensure secure data transmission security for charging piles and power management platforms, VicOne’s xCarbon (IDPS) will be incorporated into DeltaGrid® energy management gateways for EV charging infrastructure.
Dr. Cally Ko, Vice President & General Manager of Corporate Strategic Business Development and Alliance at Delta Electronics, Inc.: “As demand for charging infrastructure spreads from residential to commercial spaces, DeltaGrid® EVM system empowers businesses to realize their vision of sustainable operation through optimized charging pile management and efficiency. Our partnership with VicOne will enable our customers to comply with the highest standards of international regulations and quickly deploy safe and efficient charging infrastructure.”
