Argus partners with Microsoft to provide Microsoft Azure IoT end-to-end Cyber Security Cloud solution for car manufacturers.

Argus Cyber Security, a global pioneer in the field of cyber automotive security, cooperated with Microsoft Azure IoT to help car manufacturers to track, identify, and mitigate cloud attacks.

Argus Fleet Protection, an Automotive Security Operation Center (ASOC) solution, in-vehicle insights from Argus Connected ECU Protection, and update capability with Argus Software Updates Over-the-Air comprise the Argus cybersecurity package for automotive applications, which is combined with Azure IoT. (OTA). The complete end-to-end cloud solution is one of the first to provide car manufactures with on-board and off-board tracking for the cyber wellbeing of their fleet.

This automotive collaboration allows car manufacturers better access to security-related in-vehicle information as well as extensive coverage of security incidents. Argus Connected ECU Protection detects operating system irregularities and unusual behavior in the vehicle using customer-defined hazard models and is implemented on connected ECUs such as telematics, infotainment centers, and ADAS systems. Threat models may be built on UNECE R 155 (WP.29), the MITRE Attack structure, or some other model that is selected. Vehicle warnings are sent to Argus Fleet Protection, where they are paired with information from other sources in dedicated automotive hazard hunting and investigation modules. Vehicle manufacturers will create a more reliable, all-encompassing cyber intelligence picture by combining end-to-end automotive cyber protection with Microsoft Azure IoT.

Furthermore, using Argus Delta OTA update technologies, car manufactures will immediately incorporate security upgrades to minimize vulnerability to cyber threats while reducing vehicle downtimes and deployment costs.

"We are thrilled to be joining the world's leading businesses on Microsoft Azure. It represents a significant step forward for vehicle manufacturers looking to minimize their exposure to cyber risk while still adhering to applicable requirements and regulations such as UNR 155 (WP.29) "said Miki Hakak, Argus Cyber Security's VP Marketing, and Business Development. "By collaborating with a global leader like Microsoft, we're making it easier for vehicle manufacturers to cost-effectively incorporate cyber protection into their vehicles without disrupting manufacturing cycles or project risk."

"Cybersecurity is a critical component in the transition to connected and autonomous vehicles," said Avijit Sinha, Microsoft's general manager for Azure Mobility. "Argus offers robust and flexible tools to ensure security through a vehicle's diverse computing resources and networks, whether it's avoiding attacks on safety-critical functions or personal data theft. The partnership of Argus and Microsoft Azure IoT offers a roadmap for automakers aiming to achieve their target of stable connected and autonomous vehicles."

Keeper Streamlines Compliance Processes With Granular Sharing Enforcements

Keeper Security, Inc. | January 11, 2024

Keeper Security, the leading provider of zero-trust and zero-knowledge cybersecurity software protecting passwords, passkeys, privileged access, secrets and remote connections, announces Granular Sharing Enforcements will soon be available for all products in the Keeper® platform. Granular Sharing enables administrators to enforce detailed creating and sharing permissions at the user level. By implementing these permissions, organizations can ensure employees only have access to the resources necessary for their roles, minimizing the risk of unauthorized access, data breaches and lateral movement within a network. "It's critical for organizations to have security solutions that help them adhere to increasing regulations and compliance requirements," said Craig Lurey, CTO and Co-founder of Keeper Security. "Granular permission control helps organizations enhance their security posture by restricting access to sensitive information and systems. With Granular Sharing Enforcements, it's easier than ever for IT administrators to better control the principle of least privilege and streamline operations within their organizations." Keeper's added Granular Sharing Enforcement policies provide more detailed restrictions that administrators can apply to users for both creating and sharing records. Most employees do not need access to all of the data or functionalities within an organization, and many industries and geographical regions have specific regulations and compliance requirements regarding data protection and privacy, including HIPAA, GDPR, PCI DSS and SOX. Granular permission controls enable organizations to align with local and industry regulations by allowing them to define and enforce access policies. This helps in ensuring the organization is compliant with industry standards and legal requirements. Key features of Keeper's Granular Sharing Enforcements include: Auditing: Keeper provides clear alerting and reporting on over 100 different event types. Version control: Only a small subset of users have permissions to update or share records, helping teams ensure information is consistent and accurate. Seamless access on any device: Keeper provides the same user experience across platforms, ensuring cross functionality and ease of use, whether on web, desktop or mobile. Encryption: Keeper provides secure sharing with elliptic curve encryption, ensuring cybercriminals cannot intercept passwords or other shared records in transit. Keeper Administrators can easily customize permissions to best suit the compliance needs of their organization. Administrators modify permissions in the Enforcement Policies section of the Admin Console for the chosen role by selecting Creating and Sharing. Most permissions are activated by default for maximum security. Enforcements have been designed to be simple and powerful, allowing admins to choose the appropriate settings for their unique needs. Granular Sharing Enforcements will be available for all sharing needs within Keeper's Enterprise Password Manager, Keeper Secrets Manager and KeeperPAM. With Keeper's zero-knowledge password management and security platform, IT administrators have complete visibility into employee password practices, enabling them to monitor password use and enforce password security policies, including strong, unique passwords, Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), and other security policies. Keeper Secrets Manager® is a fully managed cloud-based, zero-knowledge platform for securing infrastructure secrets such as API keys, database passwords, access keys, certificates and any type of confidential data. Its latest offering, KeeperPAM™, provides next-generation Privileged Access Management (PAM) that is disrupting the traditional PAM market. KeeperPAM delivers enterprise-grade password, secrets and privileged connection management within a unified SaaS platform that is cost-effective, easy to use and simple to deploy. KeeperPAM enables least-privilege access with zero-trust and zero-knowledge security. Enterprises select Keeper because of its strong security architecture, ability to support federated and passwordless authentication with any identity provider, seamless integration into on-premises, cloud or hybrid environments and ease of use across desktop and mobile devices.
