— Edward Tsai, Vice President of Strategic Partnership at VicOne

STUTTGART, GERMANY, September 5, 2023/ — P3 digital services, leading provider of In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) systems, and VicOne, an automotive cybersecurity solutions leader, today announced their partnership: The pair will showcase their new pre-integration, enabling the exceptional cybersecurity features of the VicOne Security app, based on VicOne Smart Cockpit SDK, in the SPARQ OS IVI ecosystem, at IAA Mobility 2023.

VicOne’s Smart cockpit solution provides a full range of cybersecurity protection functions for infotainment enabled by the SPARQ OS platform, based on Android Automotive OS. It prevents personally identifiable information (PII) and privacy breach through risky apps or browsers, thus safeguarding vehicle users. In parallel it blocks the installation of backdoors, thereby averting remote manipulation of information on the IVI system. Furthermore it informs the driver about resource-intensive apps to enhance smart cockpit driving experience and safety. As soon as a data breach or insecure solutions are detected, customers are promptly notified, enabling them to take action and protect themselves before it’s too late. The combined solution of SPARQ OS and VicOne enables users to stay alert and benefit from 24/7 PII and privacy breach surveillance.

The automotive cybersecurity solution continually assesses privacy risks – including protecting email addresses, bank account numbers, credit card details, social security numbers, and beyond – safeguards against data leaks and unauthorized access. Any vulnerable Android Automotive apps using insecure communication or data storage methods are recognized, with future infiltration attempts prevented in the infotainment system. The result is a safe and secure IVI environment, with content protection for driver and all the vehicle’s passengers.

OEMs which choose to deploy SPARQ OS IVI are alleviated of the requirement to develop or invest in separate cybersecurity measures; they, and their customers, can benefit from IVI-specialized VicOne protection right out-of-the-box. Software-enabled services represent OEMs’ next opportunity for generating revenue. But providers should first protect customers’ data privacy through smart cockpit protection solutions, so as to win customers’ trust.

“With cars becoming supercomputers on wheels, this leaves certain security gaps that attackers can use to victimize car makers, their suppliers, and car owners with far reaching consequences for vehicle operation and vehicle security. Thus, the combination of comprehensive threat intelligence with network security expertise is more critical than ever. Encased in the connected car experience is the ability to protect users against potential cyber-attacks,” said Edward Tsai, Vice President of Strategic Partnership at VicOne. “We’re delighted to partner with P3 and join the increasingly popular SPARQ ecosystem to deliver future-ready always-on protection for SPARQ users everywhere,” he added.

“With the addition of VicOne to the SPARQ OS platform, our OEM customers can have even more confidence that the whole SPARQ-enabled infotainment ecosystem is infused with the very highest level of cybersecurity,” commented Marius Mailat, CTO & Managing Director of P3 digital services.

SPARQ OS is the dynamic and rapidly developing IVI solution developed by P3 based on Android Automotive OS, the fastest growing in-vehicle operating system in the world today. SPARQ’s cockpit platform includes a diverse appstore, smart navigation, digital and personal voice assistant, charging, media and entertainment. It features fully automated over-the-air software and firmware updates, ensuring always-up-to-date functionality and promoting sustainability.
