ZeroDayGuard Platform for IoT Firmware Security Certified as ASIL-D
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, UNITED STATES, June 6, 2022 — Dellfer, the leading provider of cybersecurity for IoT firmware, today announced that its ZeroDayGuard Platform is the first cybersecurity solution to receive certification for ISO 26262 at the highest level, Automotive Safety Integrity Level D (ASIL-D). After successfully completing the functional safety system audit for General Functional Safety Management, System/Hardware Functional Safety Management, Software Functional Safety Management, and an FSM Audit, TÜV SÜD issued Dellfer a Q4B Certificate.
“The certification of ZeroDayGuard for ISO 26262 ASIL-D represents our commitment to automotive safety. Our engineering team’s security expertise has allowed us to develop a one-of-a-kind solution that protects IoT connected devices in automobiles from zero-day cyberattacks and other threats,” said Dellfer Founder and CEO James Blaisdell. “All IoT connected devices are cyberthreat vectors. The risks associated with attacks on automobiles’ IoT devices pose a particular risk. We are proud to help connected car suppliers and manufacturers protect auto-IoT devices.”
“With the achievement of ISO 26262 ASIL-D, Dellfer’s ZeroDayGuard Platform can be integrated with certified compiler toolchains,” said Ken Wante, vice president of engineering Dellfer. “This enables security to be embedded in IoT firmware to defend against cyberattacks, even zero-day attacks, through built-in code execution protection.”
