Argus Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IDPS) uses Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) algorithms to detect hacking attempts and prevent them from affecting a vehicle’s critical systems. The company claims that it can be easily integrated into existing production lines and no architecture changes are required. Argus’s IDPS also notifies OEMs in real-time and enables seamless integration into any vehicle’s production line. It also generates reports and alerts for remote monitoring of a vehicle’s cyber health. Finally, it can also protect Telematics Service Providers offering Smart Driving Assistance, Remote Diagnostics systems and UBI solutions by integrating it into OBD-II service dongles. 


Additionally, the company has a cyber-consulting service for carmakers to use to detect threats and find vulnerabilities in the network elements of existing and future vehicle models. These services include architecture and design review and penetration testing for current and future models.
