The upcoming regulatory mandates from UNECE’s WP.29 and ISO 21434 drive the compliance requirements for securing the security lifecycle in the automotive industry. In order to achieve this compliance, the unique complexities of the automotive industry require a holistic approach to securing the cars of the future covering all 3 phases of a vehicle lifecycle: design and development, manufacturing, and operation of the cars in the field – and ultimately managing the full 15-20 year security lifecycle for each vehicle
To address these unique challenges, in an innovative collaboration Argus Cyber Security, CyberArk, Device Authority, and Microsoft are joining forces to create the next generation solution for automotive and mobility security. This comprehensive platform-based approach addresses the complex challenges of securing connected vehicles, ensuring data sovereignty, management, and compliance, and safeguarding cloud and enterprise environments by leveraging the latest Azure OpenAI Security Co-pilot technologies from Microsoft. This collaborative effort represents a significant leap forward in automotive and mobility security, combining the strengths of each company to create a robust, end-to-end solution. By addressing the unique challenges posed by connected vehicles, this partnership is poised to set new benchmarks for security data management and compliance in the rapidly evolving automotive landscape.

Microsoft Manufacturing and Mobility Industry Team
At Microsoft, along with our partners, we have curated a broad portfolio of platform-based products and services for a comprehensive support of automotive and manufacturing industries during the three lifecycle phases of development, production, and post-production, and all the associated homologation processes. For this collaboration, GitHub Copilot will be leveraged for the design and development phase. Microsoft’s Purview platform which is now enabled with Azure OpenAI tools and copilot, provides data security and governance across various data estates while reducing risk and meeting compliance requirements. Microsoft Sentinel which is a Cloud-native SIEM and SOAR platform for collecting, analyzing, and responding to security events along with Defender Threat Intelligence, enabled with Azure OpenAI Copilot, provides a comprehensive VSOC operation. The VSOC platform ingests data from CyberArk, Device Authority, Argus Security, and other sources, including Microsoft’s 65 trillion Threat Intelligence, leveraging Security Copilot to identify, prioritize and mitigate critical threats proactively at machine speed.
The complexities of the automotive industry require a holistic platform-based approach to securing the cars of the future, where the ecosystem of partners can combine their state-of-the-art products, know how, innovative approaches, and leveraging the most advanced generative AI enabled security technologies, to address the unique challenges of the automotive industry.
