Delhi-based Steelbird International (Steelbird), a leading automotive components manufacturing company has partnered with Israel-headquartered Cybellum Technologies, a leading provider for cybersecurity solutions.

As per the understanding, Steelbird will introduce Cybellum’s advanced product security platform – vulnerability management, compliance validation – for Indian OEMs and component manufacturers.

With vehicles now getting complex, cybersecurity remains a key focus area for the protection of automotive electronic systems, communication networks, control algorithms, software, and underlying data from malicious attacks, damage, unauthorised access, or manipulation.

For example, a connected car is akin to a computer on a network with exposed interfaces such as steering, braking and other vital information about the occupants. A modern-day car with some advanced features can have 150 Electronic Control Units (ECUs) with millions of lines of source code, thereby increasing the cyber risk manifold. Steelbird says it envisions the importance of cybersecurity and wants to bring the best available solution for the Indian OEMs, the aftermarket and testing institutes for both Internal Combustion Engines (ICEs) and electric vehicles; thereby becoming one of the first companies to provide cybersecurity solutions in the country.

By making the Cybellum platform available, Steelbird will enable automobile manufacturers to develop and design systems with end-to-end compliance to global cybersecurity standards such as UNECE WP29R155.

Manav Kapur, executive director, Steelbird International said, "This is a breakthrough initiative for Steelbird International. As we move in an increasingly interconnected world, the threat of cyberattacks and the need to adopt effective solutions has also skyrocketed. Currently, a very small percentage of vehicles, both ICEs and EVs, are protected by cybersecurity solutions while the others with their vulnerabilities, are open to attacks via a connected network. By using Cybellum’s trusted platform, manufacturers will be able to drive the technological edge in this compelling domain.”

The capability to detect, remediate and assess exposure to cyber vulnerabilities on auto components, including ECUs, with Cybellum’s Digital Twin Feature will enable customers to secure their products and solutions.
