Connectivity has become a competitive edge within the automotive industry. Like in so many other industries, like healthcare, finance, or insurance, stakeholders in the automotive sector realize the massive potential that lies in connecting cars to the internet; using data coming from the vehicles makes everyone happy. Drivers can gain easier servicing and maintenance, and on the other, car manufacturers can use it to improve their services, upgrade software, and boost marketing. Car fleets can then use it for running diagnostics, such as maintenance alerts, health status reports, and logistics. But what happens when these car-fleets face security issues? This can lead to a whole other set of problems if they aren’t prepared. Here is how vehicle security solutions from Gatekeeper can help protected connected cat-fleets.
Car-Fleets Using Aftermarket Telematics Face Huge Risks
Connectivity is not only available as an embedded infrastructure within the car, but connectivity also has become possible through aftermarket devices installed in cars already on the road. These telematics enable car fleets interested in leveraging the functionalities of a connected car, to enjoy them without buying new connected cars. This brings some risks. Once the fleet is connected, it is immediately exposed to the most dangerous cyber threat – a fleet-wide attack. It is then turned into a potential entry point for hackers to penetrate the vehicle itself, its backend servers, or the car fleet’s IT network. They can then take control of the car, its data, and anything else involved or embedded in it. This is why vehicle security solutions are needed to combat these attacks on car fleets.
