INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - In the North American International Automotive Show (NAIAS) event, John Chen, Executive Chairman and CEO of BlackBerry Limited, introduced BlackBerry Jarvis, a software for the security of the transformational cyber.

Initially, BlackBerry is marketing this solution to car manufacturers, who still rely on software for complex or complex supply chains or supply chains. This is a challenge for car manufacturers and case examples that can be solved today by Jarvis.

BlackBerry also announced that Jarvis can be used for other industry segments, industries such as health, industrial automation, aerospace, and defense are referred to as examples of industries that require an urgent need for products such as Jarvis.

Jarvis, developed through BlackBerry Limited's experience, expertise and technology with cyber security, is the only cloud-based static-code-scanning solution that can identify vulnerabilities in software used in cars.

Jarvis scans and provides actionable insights in minutes, where manual scanning requires more experts and will take a much longer time.

"The connected and autonomous vehicle, requiring some of the most complex software ever developed, creates a significant challenge for car manufacturers who must ensure the code complies with industry standards and factory standards while simultaneously enhancing cyber security on highly tempting surfaces for cyber criminals and hackers, "said John Chen through information disclosure received INDUSTRY.co.id in Jakarta, Tuesday (16/1/2018).

The challenge for OEMs or Original Equipment Manufacturers is the fact that vehicles use hundreds of software components, many of which are made up of a widespread third-party supplier network on multiple levels.

This distributed supply chain offers many advantages while increasing the chances of human error that can slow down the production cycle and impact on overall quality.

"Jarvis is a breakthrough product for OEMs, because for the first time they have complete, consistent, and near-real-time visibility of production and security readiness throughout the vehicle code bundle, as well as the insight and in-depth learning needed to predict and improve vulnerability, ensuring compliance, and staying one step ahead of all possible criminal acts. " added Chen.

As a leader in certified, secure and reliable automotive software for the automotive industry, BlackBerry currently provides state-of-the-art cyber security technology to reduce the risk of cyber attacks targeting vehicle software for OEMs worldwide.
