We saw a huge challenge unfolding.
While working with manufacturers on securing their embedded devices, we were amazed to discover alarming gaps in the automotive, medical device, and critical infrastructure ecosystems.
A critical piece of the product
lifecycle was missing.
Throughout the product lifecycle, there were dedicated tools for almost everything, from PLM to QMS and CI/CD. Except for cybersecurity - which was largely manual and relied on general-purpose IT security tools. This made business-driven risk management nearly impossible.
The result? delays, recalls,
and huge safety implications.
The inability to comply with product security regulations, delayed product launches, costly recalls, and alarming safety risks became the norm. We've had IT security, cloud security and OT security platforms for years now, isn't it time our products will have their own security platform as well?
The only question left was -
how can we solve that?
Combining cybersecurity expertise with embedded device know-how, we sat out to build the world’s first Product Security Platform - the missing piece in the modern manufacturing ecosystem, allowing teams to manage and execute every part of their product security and compliance process.
The Product Security Manifesto - 7 principles that guide everything we do
To keep products secure, we first need to know what’s hidden in our device’s software. We believe in radical visibility and transparency, from the supply chain all the way to the final product.
To maintain connected devices, security has to go beyond one-off scans and security assessments. It has to be integrated across the entire lifecycle from design to post-production, in a continuous manner.
Partnerships, not just technology
Every organization has a unique product security roadmap. Our goal is to partner with companies to build the best solution for every roadmap, through a combination of consulting, professional services, and technology.
Building off of our experience in cybersecurity, we know that threat detection alone is not enough, and managing risk is ever-more crucial. To bring security and compliance to products, we need a way to manage risk across all products and business units.
Security, safety, and compliance go together
For manufacturers, it’s all about safety and regulatory compliance, which is why we believe these three areas should work in perfect sync.
Automation by design
Manual security analysis can only go so far. The exponential growth in device software mandates automation and workflows wherever possible.
Ecosystem and community as key
Product security is a new and evolving discipline. We believe that building a community of professionals through knowledge sharing and standardization is key to the success of the practice as a whole.
We’re doing something special here.
Whether it’s your mom’s SUV or your grandfather’s heart valve, being part of Cybellum means being part of something impactful -- keeping the safety critical devices we all rely on cyber secure.
That’s why we love what we do. If that sounds like something you would love doing as well, reach out.
