Japanese automaker Mitsubishi Motors Corp. (Mitsubishi Motors) has tapped the services of Cyfirma, a predictive cyber-threat visibility and intelligence analytics platform company to expand visibility on external threat landscape.
Cyfirma’s cloud-based, AI-powered cybersecurity platform, DeCYFIR, not only offers full visibility on the potential threats but also enables companies’ security officers to prepare against upcoming attacks and prevent the theft of intellectual property.
Mitsubishi is among the automakers in the world that invested in autonomous driving assistance systems, electric vehicles and connected services, which means cyber threats are not far behind.
“Customer safety and their personal information remain our utmost priority at Mitsubishi Motors,” said Yamane, GM of Information Security Management Office, Mitsubishi Motors. “With the rising level of cyberattacks, cybersecurity threat intelligence information becomes paramount as a countermeasure and deterrence to these risks. We are confident that CYFIRMA is the right partner for us to work with,”
Leveraging Cyfirma’s DeCYFIR platform allows Mitsubishi Motors to gain full visibility into the external threat landscape by monitoring the Dark Web and tracking any activity or conversation that poses a threat to its business. This ability, coupled with having established computer security incident response teams to collect and analyze cyber threats across various business units, will strengthen Mitsubishi Motors’ cybersecurity posture and increase business resiliency.
Based on analysis of threat indicators collected from the Deep Web, Dark Web, hacker forums, and other closed communities, as well as Cyfirma’s own research, attacks can be predicted using probability prediction models and analytics engines. By providing threat intelligence from the outside, Cyfirma is able to share early warning information when signs of cyber-attacks are detected, enabling Mitsubishi Motors to take rapid action to thwart attempts at intellectual property theft, and other malicious activities.
“We are confident that our DeCYFIR platform will be instrumental in helping them strengthen their cyber posture, protect their valuable intellectual property from any cyber-attacks and threats, and give them the upper hand against cybercriminals,” said Kumar Ritesh, founder and CEO, Cyfirma. “Cybercrime and attacks are dominating news headlines today, and the reality of these incidents happening to anyone, anywhere, anytime is sinking in. Regardless of the industry, forward-looking organizations can no longer have cybersecurity as an afterthought.”
