Automotive Cyber Security – Innovative Solutions from Israel

Although Israel does not have car manufacturing plants or vehicle assembly lines, Israel is leading the way in mobility and intelligent transportation technologies. The global automotive industry desperately needs innovative solutions and Israeli start-ups are making their way to become the main providers of next-generation technologies in this fast-changing ecosystem. 

Autonomous vehicles, electrification, connected cars, and shared transportation are the big trends that are transforming the auto industry. Israel has a strong presence in computer software and hardware, semiconductor technology, IoT and AI expertise, radar technology, cybersecurity, LiDAR solutions, satellite communication solutions, computer vision, and sensors. Like all IoT devices, cars are getting smarter by connecting to the Internet to gather and transmit valuable data. But with increased connectivity comes increased gateways for cyberattacks, which in the case of moving cars, could prove lethal.

The increased complexity of modern cars makes securing them harder and hacking them potentially easier. There are multiple channels through which one can infiltrate a car’s inner networks, like the peripheral connectivity ports such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and on-board diagnostics; as well as automotive cloud servers such as telematics, which could allow hackers to take control over multiple vehicles at once; and other mobile applications packaged together with the car. The combination of the potentially devastating security risks and the high frequency of attacks on automotive networks now call for automotive cybersecurity companies to assume a crucial role in public safety.

Here are few Israeli companies offering innovative solutions for Automotive Cyber Security: 

Argus Cyber Security 

The ready-to-embed products protect against malicious intrusions that may compromise data privacy or electronic control units. Argus enables car manufacturers and suppliers to offer connectivity without compromising privacy or safety. Argus solutions prevent recalls and apply equally to aftermarket connectivity platforms. An easily integrated and seamlessly updating cybersecurity layer uses Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) algorithms to detect OS anomalies, isolate suspicious applications, and prevent the spread of attacks.


The Security Agent solution is an intrusion detection and prevention system that can be integrated into a vehicle’s existing CAN bus and blocks any attempt by devices on the network to send illegal or prohibited messages. Security Agent aims to secure all vehicles, regardless of how vulnerable or buggy their connected devices may be. 

C2A Security

  Developing cyber security for connected vehicles. The solution’s major features include easy integration with existing CAN bus solutions at the OEM or Tier 1 level and aftermarket; customizations based on artificial intelligence and machine learning for individual makes and models; low-cost BOM; hardware that is a simple connector using approved parts; software on one ECU with a very small footprint that doesn’t require regular downloads; no CAN bus reprogramming and artificial intelligence that can minimize potentially life-threatening errors. 


Enigmatos provides solutions for existing and emerging car architectures. The Intrusion Detection and Prevention Solutions are based on in-car data collection on different levels – communication (e.g. CAN, Flexray, Ethernet) and other critical lines, as well as cloud-based analysis. Their Machine Learning models are tailor-made for automotive anomalies and threats.


Offers automotive manufacturers a comprehensive cyber security hardware solution, which fits the automotive value chain and alleviates the difficulties of integrating a software solution. The unique Lockdown Methodology, developed by the GuardKnox team, has been successfully deployed for use in Israel’s Iron Dome and Arrow III missile defense systems, as well as the Israeli F-35 fighter jet. 

Karamba Security

Prevents hackers from attacking connected cars and autonomous platforms. Karamba’s embedded software eliminates cyber-related recalls, by automatically hardening ECUs according to factory settings and preventing cyber-attacks, which do not comply with factory settings. 

Nano Lock Security

NanoLock Security patented access control platform provides a locking /unlocking mechanism, for solid-state memory, CPUs, and Microcontrollers. NanoLock Security controls the ability to write to specified areas. The device’s protected areas are in Read-Only by default. Remote machine-to-machine (M2M) unlocking can only be done using a one-time programmable (OTP) password. The device’s OTP password changes after every authorized unlock.

Upstream Security

A cloud-based cyber security solution that protects the technologies and applications of connected and autonomous vehicles. Upstream Security leverages big data and machine learning to provide OEMs and vehicle fleets with comprehensive non-intrusive defense. 

SafeRide Technologies

Offers a vehicle cyber security solution, targeted at commercial fleets and private vehicles – that enables vehicle safety and protection of personal data & privacy, trade secrets, vendor reputation, business operations, intellectual property, and human lives.

Hailo | AI Processor for Edge Devices

Hailo is developing a microprocessor designed to deliver data-center performance to edge devices by using proprietary technology for deep-learning applications. The processor fits into embedded devices, enabling them to process high-resolution video and other high-throughput streams in real time using deep-learning algorithms while operating at low power consumption, size, and cost. Hailos AI processor is designed to fit into smart devices in a variety of industries and use cases including automotive, smart cities, retail, and Industry 4.0. Hailo’s mission is to enable smart edge technologies reach their full potential. The solution Hailo presents bridges the gap between existing and future AI technologies and the compute capacity needed to power these applications. The company is focused on building AI processors efficient and compact enough to compute and interpret vast amounts of data in real-time — processors that can be embedded in the edge devices themselves. Now, complicated AI applications that could previously only run on the cloud are made possible to run on the edge, and the best part – with a fraction of the power consumption. Hailo was named a cool vendor in Cool Vendors in AI Semiconductors, 2020 by the Gartner Research Group.
