BlackBerry, a Canadian software maker, has launched new cybersecurity software. One of its features is being able to detect cybersecurity vulnerabilities in self-driving car programs.
Blackberry Jarvis, as the new software is called, was designed to target the automaker audience. Even so, it could very well find use in industrial and healthcare automation.
Allegedly, the company is using the pay-as-you-go payment model.
According to the company, end users can access the cybersecurity app online. It can be used to scan files for malware during every stage of software development.
Rewinding back to last year when the WannaCry ransomware was reigning terror on the internet, a lot of business owners took notice of BlackBerry and the company’s cybersecurity offerings which primarily focus on offering secure connection solutions for mobile phones.
Developers have already tested the new software solution on Tata Motors’ Jaguar Land Rover unit. They managed to cut down the execution time from 30 minutes to 7 minutes, which is a noticeable difference.
Back in September, they announced they’re going to be partnering with Delphi Automotive Plc, an auto supplier. Together, they will develop an operating system for self-driving cars.
In other news, BlackBerry and Baidu, a Chinese search company, have begun a new partnership. Together, they will be developing new technology for self-driving vehicles.
Apart from that, the company has also signed deals with Qualcomm, Ford Motor Co., and Denso, so there are various new and interesting projects on the horizon.
