GuardKnox and Xilinx: Innovating to Offer Flexible Hardware Infrastructure for the Cybersecurity Needs of Connected Vehicles
Provides fleet owners, managers and OEMs with a certified security for vehicles coupled with a precise view of the cybersecurity status of their entire fleet. GuardKnox’s patented Communication Lockdown™ technology protects connected fleet vehicles from cyber threats. Transmitting data to the DXC Security Operations Center (SOC) enables real-time monitoring and in depth analysis of security-related events. SOC analysts are presented with well defined, targeted and actionable intelligence enabling them to ascertain which vehicles were under attack along with the purpose and method of the attack.
Fleet Health, Usage Monitoring and Optimization takes advantage of GuardKnox’s secure on-board storage of vehicle performance and operational data. Real-time data is securely transmitted from each vehicle to DXC Technology’s Advanced Analytics data center.
DXC’s advanced AI analytics engine rapidly dives into the data to calculate real-time health scores that reveal the current health of each vehicle’s systems.
Based on real-time data, DXC assigns the probability of failure for each monitored component to predict its remaining useful life, achieving optimized maintenance at minimized fleet downtime and expense.
Collection of real-time performance statistics enables fleet managers and insurance companies to determine actual usage parameters per driver, per vehicle, and across the fleet.
Every day, connected vehicles store and transmit a large and growing volume of valuable information that can provide dramatic insights into the behavior of vehicle components across the entire fleet. The connected vehicle captures data from engine performance statistics to infotainment preferences, from travel routes to road-side alerts.
Connected fleets are still in their infancy. DXC’s advanced AI and business intelligence in its Analytics Platform enable fleet operators to exploit data generated in vehicles to take advantage of data monetization and other new opportunities.
Whether on the road, in the air or at sea, all connected vehicles are subject to cyberattacks. GuardKnox protects any type of vehicle or complex IOT device – trains, ships, drones – wherever they are deployed. Secure data storage and communications enable connection and data transmission to the DXC SOC and Analytics Platform anywhere, anytime.
