SheeldS (formerly Arilou) and Cyngn Announce Partnership

Tel-Aviv, Israel, August 31, 2021 – Cyngn, the industrial autonomous vehicle technology developer, today announced a partnership with SheeldS (Formerly Arilou Automotive Cybersecurity).

The partnership will ensure the continued protection and security of Cyngn’s autonomous vehicle deployments.

Cyngn's CEO Lior Tal said: "Arilou has a decade of experience in researching and developing cyber-security solutions dedicated to the automotive environment. They are experts in embedded, mission-critical cyber security, and are experienced at developing reliable, high-end, defensive cyber security solutions for even the most complicated of systems. By partnering with Arilou, Cyngn adds vehicle network level cybersecurity to DriveMod, our modular industrial vehicle autonomous driving software, which is part of the Enterprise Autonomy Suite"

The industrial automation market is expected to climb to $306.2 billion by 2027. As more autonomous vehicles start to be deployed across more environments, the need for end-to-end security only increases. With SheeldS technology, Cyngn’s autonomous vehicles can identify communication anomalies and react. For example, if an AV begins to receive commands that are not congruent with typical operational expectations, the system can flag the unexpected commands and initiate fail-safe modes like stopping the vehicle immediately. Moreover, SheeldS will constantly monitor Cyngn’s more than 40 autonomous vehicle subsystems to ensure no malicious actors are attempting to access the system.

In most cases, SheeldS' cybersecurity solutions will work invisibly, maximizing the uptime of these industrial autonomous vehicle fleets.

Ziv Levy of SheeldS commented: "We are very excited about being able to offer our insight and expertise to this emerging market. Thanks to Cyngn, autonomous vehicle deployments will become increasingly common across industrial use cases. Through this partnership, Cyngn now sets the highest standard of automotive security for fleets across material handling, logistics, mining, and construction".
