Israeli Tech Company C2A Selected to Provide Cybersecurity Platform for Daimler Trucks

Israeli start-up C2A Security has announced a new cybersecurity platform deal with Daimler Trucks, in line with strict European regulations. The contract for their EVSec platform was signed in 2023 and has now been made public, following similar deals with BMW Group, Marelli, NTT Data, Siemens, and Valeo last year.

With vehicles becoming more reliant on interconnected computer systems, internet connections, mobile networks, and Bluetooth, the risk of remote hacking is a growing concern. C2A, founded in Jerusalem in 2016, sees this deal with Daimler as one of the most significant in the industry.

The EVSec platform automates cybersecurity, helping companies comply with regulations efficiently and cost-effectively. Daimler Trucks will implement this platform across all eight of their truck and bus brands, following a 1% growth in sales to 526,053 units in 2023.

As new UN regulations approach in July, requiring automakers to establish cybersecurity management systems to ensure vehicle safety and data protection, C2A anticipates more deals with major automakers this year.

These regulations may lead to the discontinuation of older combustion engine models, with Porsche already planning to stop sales of its gasoline-powered SUV Macan model in Europe this spring, opting for an electric alternative to meet the new standards.

C2A and other cybersecurity firms are poised to play a crucial role in helping automakers navigate these new regulations successfully.
