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.

The radar enhances a vehicle’s ability to ‘see’ its surroundings and detect potential dangers, from a stalled car in a dark tunnel to a pedestrian up to 150m away.

“Digital radar dramatically improves performance over today’s analogue radar, bringing it to levels which have not yet been experienced in automotive applications,” said Magna technology chief Boris Shulkin.

Magna and Austin, Texas-based Uhnder jointly developed the technology which continuously scans its full environment in four dimensions, resulting in higher resolution and better contrast than analogue radar. Digital radar has the power to sense moving or standing objects, large or small, at both short and long distances.

It also eliminates interference concerns experienced by analogue radar. Each digital radar has a quintillion unique codes embedded into the signal it transmits, helping minimise the negative effects of mutual interference. Effectively, no two radars in the world would have the same code.

Magna said digital radar would result in higher levels of autonomy. In addition to vehicle and pedestrian detection, it can identify low-lying objects and open pathways on crowded, multi-lane roads.

Magna’s upcoming purchase of Veoneer, announced last week, will strengthen the company’s radar product line as Veoneer has 10 years of experience producing 40m radar sensors.
