For its thought leadership in automotive security ESCRYPT has won the Cybersecurity Leader Award (CLA). The company took first prize in the “Small and Medium Enterprises” category for building up a comprehensive range of solutions and services for IT security in connected vehicles.
ESCRYPT received the award for successfully merging its own automotive security expertise with the existing IT and IoT security services in the Bosch Group. Within a very short time, the company was able to unite security consulting and embedded security solutions for the automotive sector with classical enterprise IT security and backend services to create a comprehensive range of services for end-to-end IT security for connected mobility.
The Cybersecurity Leader Award is conferred by NTT Security and IT publishing house IDG, which publishes Computerwoche and other magazines, and honors outstanding achievements in information security. Based on the criteria leadership, methodology, customer value, and technology, an independent jury of renowned experts from business and IT security authorities selects the winners of the award.
The prize was awarded at the gala of the Information Security World (ISW) conference in Frankfurt in June. The jury praised the way ESCRYPT has aligned a wide variety of IT security solutions, products, and services to form a coherent automotive security strategy.
“Highly automated, connected mobility is one of the greatest IT security challenges of the near future,” says Dr. Uwe Müller, Head of Cyber Security Solutions, who accepted the award on ESCRYPT’s behalf. “This prize is an inspiration to everyone who is already working to create both the technical and the organizational basis for securing the entire life cycle of connected vehicles.”
