M2MD Technologies and Giesecke & Devrient team up to secure telematics

January 03, 2017 // By Julien Happich
M2MD Technologies and Giesecke & Devrient (G&D) have jointly designed a secure Communications Gateway aimed at automakers willing to quickly connect to their vehicles, execute commands more rapidly, and effectively manage costs.

The secure Communications Gateway merges M2MD’s proprietary security solutions with G&D’s expertise in encryption, key management, and highly secure hosting capabilities.

The solution is optimized to provide a unique, cloud-based platform that strengthens data transmission security and the speed of initiating communications between the vehicle and the automaker’s preferred telematics platform.

Enhanced security is driven by a patent pending solution integrating the best 3GPP wireless communication security with standard TLS 1.2. For improved connectivity, the Gateway instantly triggers a network initiated data session to the vehicle, resulting in an immediate response to complete requests for remote control functions (e.g. remote vehicle start) resulting in a better user experience.
