MOBILITY | Mitsubishi Motors strengthens its cybersecurity posture
Leading automobile manufacturer in Japan utilizes CYFIRMA’s DeCYFIR platform to predict cyberthreats, avert impending attacks, and prevent theft of intellectual property.
Predictive cyber-threat visibility and intelligence analytics platform company, CYFIRMA K.K., announced recently that Japanese automobile manufacturer Mitsubishi Motors Corporation has selected its cloud-based, AI-powered cybersecurity platform, DeCYFIR, to gain full visibility into its external threat landscape, prepare against upcoming attacks, and prevent the theft of intellectual property.
It is critical for Mitsubishi Motors to be well equipped in identifying and defending against the increase in cybercriminals looking to target Japanese companies that own advanced technologies for autonomous driving assistance systems, electric vehicles and connected services. 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.
“Customer safety and their personal information remain our utmost priority at 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,” said Yamane, general manager of Information Security Management Office, Mitsubishi Motors. “DeCYFIR is a powerful platform that enhances our cybersecurity posture as it goes one step further in providing critical early warning intelligence to identify attack surfaces and vulnerabilities at the earliest stages, allowing our security team to take rapid action in mitigating risk.”
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 honored to be working with Mitsubishi Motors, Japan’s leading automobile manufacturer,” said Kumar Ritesh, founder and chief executive, CYFIRMA. “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,” “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.”
