Intellectual Patented Property

GMV solutions are designed to detect and mitigate attacks against electronic control units (ECU), such as telematics control units, infotainment systems, gateways, keyless access ECUs, and all internal vehicle communications.

We have a proprietary intrusion detection and prevention system (IDPS) designed to protect all vehicle communications, both wireless and wired.

GMV also offers patented software solutions to protect all layers of communication in connected autonomous vehicles.

Our cybersecurity team combines experience in security with extensive experience in the automotive and information security sectors.

GMV follows the security by design principle, as in each step of the project life cycle – from specifications to validation – it evaluates cybersecurity exactly and applies meticulous planning to check penetration.

GMV offers the following cybersecurity services:

  • Vulnerability analysis and mitigation plan
  • Advanced penetration tests
  • Cyber intelligence services through continuous monitoring of the dark/deep web
  • Zero days detection
  • Forensic analysis

GMV is privileged to have a Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) with CERT accreditation.
