Argus Cyber Security announced that it is collaborating with Microsoft to build a next generation, end-to-end platform for automotive and mobility security. This Argus Vehicle Security Platform consists of two integrated solutions that combine Argus' automotive cybersecurity portfolio with robust software development and security products from Microsoft, one of the world's most innovative technology companies and a leader in GenAI. In recent years, vehicle manufacturers have come to realize the importance of Software Defined Vehicles (SDV) and integrating security measures early in the development process.

This "shift left" security approach enables automotive software developers to improve the overall quality and security of their products, while at the same time accelerating time-to-market and reducing development costs. The next-generation Argus Vehicle Security Platform embraces "shift left" principles to help OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers address the complex challenges in developing and securing connected software-defined vehicles (SDVs), as well as ensuring data management, and compliance. It comprises two integrated solutions built to help automakers secure the future of mobility: Automotive Shift-Left Security and Automotive Security Lifecycle Management.

The Automotive Shift-Left Security solution enhances the newly launched Argus DevSecOps platform for automotive software development on Microsoft Azure through the integration of advanced software development tools from Microsoft, including the Microsoft Threat Modeling Tool, and Microsoft Azure OpenAI Service. This solution uses Azure OpenAI Service to bring the power of generative AI to automotive applications for DevSecOps, with the scale and security of Azure. Moreover, the platform's open design allows it to integrate easily with other tools, as needed, to secure vehicles over their lifetime.

The second solution, known as "Automotive Security Lifecycle Management," integrates the Argus XDR threat detection and response product for automotive on Azure with robust security operations and management tools from Microsoft, including Microsoft Sentinel, Defender for Cloud, Defender Threat Intelligence and Azure OpenAI Service. The integrated solution provides automakers with comprehensive security management across all three phases of the vehicle lifecycle.
