Upstream Security, a leader in cloud-based automotive cybersecurity, announced that it is expanding its collaboration with Microsoft through the Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform (MCVP) and has joined the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association.

Upstream is one of the first cloud-based automotive cybersecurity platforms to offer in-depth integration with the MCVP. MCVP provides one consistent, cloud-connected, horizontal platform across digital scenarios on top of which customer-facing solutions can be built, including in-vehicle infotainment, advanced navigation, autonomous driving, telematics and prediction services as well as over-the-air updates (OTA). It includes the enterprise-grade global availability and scale that comes with Microsoft Azure.

Upstream’s solution provides automotive car manufacturers a turnkey solution for connected vehicles that ensures the safety and security of the vehicles, drivers and passengers alike.

The integration encompasses multiple options for automotive data ingestion using MCVP components by the Upstream platform as well as a set of real-life playbooks leveraging the integration of Upstream with Azure Sentinel, and the MCVP for investigation, containment, and remediation of multiple cybersecurity detection scenarios. In addition, the solution provides OEMs and connected fleet security operators with simulation capabilities of multiple pre-built and user-defined scenarios using Upstream’s AutoStream application running on the MCVP environment.

Upstream’s cybersecurity solution is available today for use by OEMs to detect cyber threats against connected vehicle infrastructure spanning the vehicle itself, telematics servers, and mobile applications. Customers can now reach out to their Upstream or Microsoft representatives to learn more and experience a demo of the connected car cybersecurity solution.
