Hitachi Solutions & Cybellum to Provide PLM Security Solutions in Japan

Joint offering to provide one-stop support for compliance with cyber security regulations for IoT devices from design to manufacturing to operation.

Tel Aviv, Israel, November 8, 2023– Cybellum, creators of the award-winning Product Security Platform, and Hitachi Solutions, a leading Japanese IT distributor that provides a full range of IT security products and services to midsize and enterprise-level customers, announced today its partnership to provide PLM security solutions in Japan. The PLM Security Solutions service provides one-stop support for uncovering and managing cybersecurity vulnerabilities from the design to manufacturing and operation of IoT devices.

As devices become increasingly internet-connected across the automotive, medical, and critical infrastructure sectors, governments are taking note of the cybersecurity risks that they introduce to facilities and civilians. In response, governing bodies around the globe have implemented new regulations such as WP.29 for automotive, FDA PMA cybersecurity for medical devices, and NIST for industrial equipment. To help companies who want to remain secure and compliant while bringing connected products and IoT devices onto their networks, Cybellum’s Product Security Platform offers continuous cyber security safeguards and produces compliant-ready reports both during development and post-productions.

Hitachi Solutions has been offering Product Incident Response Team (PSIRT) implementation for organizational setup and process development, consulting services for security measure integration into product design, and security libraries for implementation of security functionalities. Working with Cybellum, Hitachi Solutions will now add highly accurate vulnerability management capabilities and expand their consulting services to encompass compliance support for the Cyber Resilience Act and product lifecycle support with their PLM security solution.

“This partnership aligns perfectly with our shared commitment to helping organizations strengthen their cybersecurity posture and ensure compliance with evolving cybersecurity regulations,” said Slava Bronfman, CEO of Cybellum. “By combining Cybellum’s expertise in product security with Hitachi Solutions’ comprehensive security services, we are empowering organizations in Japan to uncover and manage cyber vulnerabilities while streamlining compliance efforts.”
