Upstream Security, a provider in cloud-based automotive cybersecurity detection and response, announced that it has joined the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association, which establishes an ecosystem of leading software vendors that have integrated their solutions to better defend against a world of increasing threats. Upstream Security also announced a new integration between the Upstream C4 platform and Microsoft Azure Sentinel enabling detection, investigation and remediation for threats targeting connected vehicles and smart mobility services.

Upstream C4 is one of the first cloud-based automotive cybersecurity platforms to offer in-depth integration with Azure Sentinel. Through this integration, contextually rich and automotive fluent alerts from Upstream C4 can be used to automate responses based on an OEM vehicle manufacturer’s or connected fleet’s unique security policies. Security analysts within vehicle operations centers (VSOCs) can use the integrated solution to develop and enforce customized playbooks as well as perform domain-specific threat hunting activities using Upstream’s automotive data platform. Customers will also benefit from integrative dashboards and reports within Azure Sentinel for unified access to real-time threat analysis and contextually rich mobility-focused investigation timelines.
