Connected vehicle platform company Sibros announced today it has partnered with Google Cloud to bring flexible and intelligent connected vehicle-to-cloud solutions to automakers worldwide.

As automakers navigate the complexities of vehicle software lifecycle management, they increasingly need deep data insights to understand product usage and deliver remote software updates that improve product safety, performance and functionality. To meet this need, Sibros launched its Deep Connected Platform for full vehicle over-the-air software and data management that meets rigorous industry safety, security and data privacy requirements.

Sibros’ automotive software and data management platform – an integrated suite of embedded software, telematics, network stacks and SaaS applications, which includes Deep Connected Platform – will take advantage of Google Cloud’s scalable infrastructure with data analytics, visualization, AI, machine learning and application programming interface (API) management tools.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Google Cloud to offer our customers the ability to deploy one of the world’s most advanced connected vehicle solutions with the proven trust of Google’s cloud services, This partnership is a big leap forward in our mission to deliver safe and secure connected automotive technologies that improve how our world moves.”

Hemant Sikaria, CEO and Co-Founder of Sibros

Through the partnership, Sibros’ connected vehicle solution will be available on Google Cloud, enriched with a variety of Google apps, cloud and automotive services to help automakers reinvent the connected mobility experience with:
  • Remote vehicle services and mobile apps
  • Real-time fleet data and edge analytics
  • Remote diagnostics and preventative maintenance
  • Full vehicle over-the-air software updates

Sibros’ hardware agnostic solution connects a wide range of mobility products – from cars, trucks, buses, scooters to e-bikes and tractors – to Google Cloud, giving automakers a single source of truth, visibility and governance over all software and data across globally connected fleets. It can be deployed on a variety of in-vehicle operating systems, including Android Automotive.

The combined solution also sets a new bar as one of the first over-the-air software management systems to carry the ISO 26262 certification with an ASIL-D rating for automotive OTA software updates. The ASIL-D rating meets the highest level of automotive functional safety requirements following documented best practices, processes, and procedures, which also applies to the UNECE WP.29 regulatory framework, to help automakers meet cybersecurity regulations throughout the entire vehicle software development lifecycle.

“Google Cloud is committed to helping automakers reimagine the connected vehicle experience,” said Matthias Breunig, Director Global Automotive Solutions of Google Cloud. “Sibros has built a distinctive platform to manage fleets of globally connected vehicles based on modern connected vehicle architectures, embedded software, and Google Cloud technologies that help our customers succeed by bringing together an entire ecosystem of solutions.”

Automakers using the Sibros platform include a fast-growing list of the world’s most iconic makers of cars, trucks, buses, 2-wheelers and tractors, as well as disruptive new electronic vehicle (EV) startups in the solar and commercial space.

Votiro Cloud Integrates With Box Content Cloud to Provide Zero Trust Content Security

Votiro | October 20, 2022

Votiro, the category leader in Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) technology, today announced its integration with Box’s leading Content Cloud to prevent ransomware and other evasive file-borne threats from entering users’ content collaboration applications and environments. Available today, users can seamlessly connect Votiro Cloud to Box to provide an essential layer of security needed to prevent new and unknown threats by sanitizing content before adding it in Box. Digital content collaboration capabilities have been paramount in the new hybrid work environment, where bad actors are targeting content and data management platforms, primarily through hidden threats in files. Many of these threats leverage advanced obfuscation techniques that can easily evade detection through traditional security technologies. Through this integration with Box, Votiro Cloud can easily be downloaded and deployed within the customers’ environment, and begin immediately eliminating all malware threats. Preventing Threats without Ruining Files Instead of scanning for known malware signatures, Votiro Cloud proactively disarms weaponized files before they enter the network and prevents virtually all attacks, ranging from evasive commodity attacks to zero-day attacks, including ransomware. In addition, Votiro’s solution prioritizes secure collaboration, increasing productivity without compromising security. All incoming files to Box Content Cloud from remote employees, contractors, and 3rd party partners are sanitized and reconstructed to preserve the integrity and functionality of the original file, allowing users to collaborate securely. "Organizations today need products that are inherently secure to support employees working from anywhere, At Box, we continuously strive to improve our integrations with third-party apps so that it's easier than ever for customers to use Box alongside best-in-class solutions. With today's integration with Votiro, we are providing customers with even more options for additional security controls to further minimize the risk of potential incidents.” Fred Klein, Vice President of Business and Corporate Development at Box Votiro applies Zero Trust principles to a customer’s interactions with digital files, automated file processing, or application-to-application file transfer process. Votiro’s scalability, speed, and depth and breadth of accepted file formats best positions them to help enterprises collaborate with third-parties safely while keeping business flowing. Files are processed at scale for high volume operations and within milliseconds, completely transparent to the end user. The company’s cloud-based, open application programming interface (API), and auto-scaling functionality allows for limitless scalability to seamlessly accommodate surges in file throughput. Votiro Cloud is easy to use and the open API fits into existing file flows seamlessly, including to and from content-rich applications and services like customer-facing portals deployed in public cloud platforms, machine-to-machine transfer to cloud content platforms such as AWS S3, Snowflake, and Box. “Enterprises no longer have to implicitly trust the users interacting with files in the cloud content platforms, but explicitly ensure safe content at all times. As a result, building out a data protection strategy and investing in technologies that adhere to the Zero Trust model is a great way to ensure secure content collaboration,” said Ravi Srinivasan, CEO at Votiro. “Digital collaboration services, like Box, create amazing efficiencies for businesses and - with the right safeguards - also provide a high level of security. We’re proud to integrate with Box to offer an essential layer of security to protect the content and data that organizations’ exchange on a daily basis without inhibiting user productivity.” About Votiro Votiro is a zero-trust content security company serving hundreds of commercial and government organizations worldwide. Votiro Cloud is an open, API-centric Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) solution to deliver safe content and eliminate file-borne threats targeting your remote workers, content-rich apps, data lakes, supply chain and B2C digital interactions. Votiro is headquartered in the United States, with offices in Australia, Israel, and Singapore.
