Karamba Security and Phantom Auto Partner to Enhance Safety and Security of Autonomous Vehicles

June 5, 2018

DETROIT, June 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TU-AUTOMOTIVE – Karamba Security, a world-leading provider of end-to-end automotive cybersecurity prevention solutions, today announced its partnership with Phantom Auto, the leading provider of teleoperation safety technology, to enhance the security and safety of autonomous vehicles (AVs).

This collaboration combines Phantom Auto’s teleoperation safety solution for AVs with Karamba Security’s Carwall to seal and harden ECUs automatically. The companies are presenting their joint solution for the AV industry at TU-Automotive in Detroit, June 6-7th at Booth 143.

“Our customers integrate our teleoperation technology into their AVs to ensure the testing and deployment of AVs is optimally safe, and we believe that safety and security are inextricably linked,” said Shai Magzimof, Phantom Auto’s CEO. “Driverless AVs using Phantom Auto’s teleoperation technology will have a highly-trained human in the loop who can safely drive the AV when it cannot safely operate on its own. But we have to ensure that the technology enabling this function is secure. Karamba’s Carwall solution prevents attacks targeting AVs and provides Phantom Auto and our fleet customers with the security needed to ensure optimal safety.” “Without 360-degree security and reliability, consumers are less inclined to put their trust in autonomous cars,” said Ami Dotan, Karamba Security CEO and co-founder. “By partnering with Phantom Auto, we can provide a truly safe and secure experience to AV passengers and allow the automotive industry realize the potential of this transformative innovation.”
