Meet Enigmatos: The Startup That is Gaining Worldwide Attention
The automotive cyber security company is being recognized for its breakthrough technology in the biggest auto events in Europe
TEL AVIV, Israel, October 16, 2018 (Newswire.com) - As the car industry moves towards interconnected networks and autonomous vehicles, all of which will be able to communicate with each other as well as outside systems, vehicles will be increasingly exposed to cyber-attacks. These attacks can range from information theft to complete control over the car's systems, including gears, breaks and steering wheel.
Out of the different companies attempting to address the issue today, the Israeli startup Enigmatos has been able to stand out on the global stage thanks to its exceptional patent-pending technology. The company is the first with the ability to create a unique digital profile for each vehicle for high accuracy cyber protection, while also possessing the capability of protecting not only future vehicles but also those already on the road today.
The automotive industry is at the peak of a global revolution; the immense growth and many technological changes that the field is undergoing are challenging the best minds in the cyber industry and in research institutions around the world. Enigmatos developed an innovative, reliable and highly accurate solution for car manufacturers, Tier 1 companies and other players in the automotive industry like fleet managers. The growing interest we see from leaders in the automotive industry shows their understanding that the dream of future vehicles cannot survive without cyber security.

Enigmatos has developed the ability to create a unique digital profile for each vehicle, which allows it to provide tailored protection in order to detect and intercept anomalies with exceptional accuracy. This approach, called Deep Car Identity Profiling (DCIP)TM, allows Enigmatos to not only detect and prevent any malicious cyber activity but also provide early detection of cyber attacks and locate the source of various network anomalies.
The company was recently nominated as a finalist in the prestigious international Mondial Tech Startup Awards competition that is part of the Paris Motor Show.
