Never Trust, Always Verify: Is Zero Trust the Next Big Thing in Cybersecurity?

Cyberattacks continue to rise every year and no sector seems to be immune. Hackers target sensitive information such as organizational, client, and financial data, as well as intellectual property (IP) and proprietary functions. As digital transformation becomes a top priority for many organizations, traditional perimeter-based security models are no longer sufficient to address the growing cybersecurity concerns. Against the backdrop, enterprises explore zero trust as it takes a micro-level approach to authenticate and approve access at every point within a network. Reasons to read: The cybersecurity landscape is swiftly changing, and businesses need more awareness to meet the evolving change. The report highlights the current state of play and the future potential of the zero trust approach in cybersecurity to protect critical digital infrastructure of enterprises across sectors such as financial services, healthcare, telecom, and transportation, among others. Read our report and gather insights on the following topics:
  • Traditional vs zero trust protection
  • Key advantages and solution providers
  • Major industries and key players
  • Drivers and challenges
  • Top funded startups and Mergers & Acquisitions
  • Implementation challenges

EB Cockpit System Solutions supports the development of in-vehicle user experiences; from specification, design and conception to production engineering and integration of hardware, software and third-party applications.

The new solutions—first used by Sony to support the development of its EV, Vision-S Prototype—allow automakers to offload the creation of custom cockpit designs to EB’s team. EB maintains it makes it possible to differentiate vehicles without the investment and resources required to build from scratch and maintain them over time.

The automotive cockpit is transforming, allowing drivers and passengers to interact with their vehicles as they do with smartphones and appliances. However, bringing the consumer experience into the cockpit is a complex task involving larger displays, voice interaction, augmented reality, access to cloud services, data from sensors and more.

Specifying, designing, sourcing and integrating the various hardware, software and services required to bring these systems to life is time-consuming, resource-intensive and costly.

EB says with its Cockpit System Solutions, carmakers now have a one-stop shop for creating user experiences for their customers. EB fully controls the development process. The result is less specification work associated with single cockpit components, less interoperability testing, fewer suppliers to manage and reduced R&D requirements for the automaker.

EB’s capabilities encompass hypervisor, over-the-air updates, UX design, UI development, natural language understanding and speech recognition. Its experience extends to sourcing and integration of displays including 3D glass and technology such as AM-OLED displays.

EB Cockpit System Solutions customers benefit from EB’s network and relationships, which include Amazon (Alexa Auto and Alexa Custom Assistant), Google (Android Automotive), Qualcomm, Infineon, Renesas and BlackBerry QNX, to name a few.

“EB Cockpit System Solutions allow car makers to bring digital innovations to life more quickly and cost-effectively by offloading the complexities of designing, sourcing and integrating the hardware and software elements to experts,” said EB CTO, Christian Reinhard.

“With EB, car makers can work with a single trusted vendor that has extensive know-how, a far-reaching eco-system of partners and a history of success.”

EB Cockpit System Solutions are responsible for supporting the development of the cockpit in the Vision-S Prototype. Based on Sony’s in-car user experience, EB developed a cockpit system which brought together Sony’s UX design, infotainment software and a computer for the cockpit with customer-specific software.

EB also supported the integration of digital mirrors, 3D glass and a door-to-door display panel.
