Japanese cybersecurity provider Trillium has bought the assets of one of the earliest cybersecurity consulting specialists, CanBusHack.

CanBusHack was set up in 2010 and has  a broad portfolio of successful projects with major OEM and Tier1 customers around the world.

"The addition of CanBusHack's Red Team and penetration testing expertise is a perfect fit for Trillium, and adds to our already robust range of cybersecurity products, services and training capabilities," said David Uze, Trillium's President and CEO. "Now, in addition to providing customers with tools and systems to ward off cyber-attacks, we can also help identify weaknesses early to reduce network vulnerabilities prior to commercial system deployment."

The combination of CanBusHack's "Red Team" penetration testing and Trillium's advanced "Blue Team" security protection expertise is expected to deliver a more effective environment for developing advanced vehicular cybersecurity systems. The expertise will also be used for testing teh security of IoT systems.

As a result of the acquisition, CanBusHack President and Founder Robert Leale will join Trillium as its Global Consulting Practice Director, and be deeply involved with Trillium's cybersecurity product development roadmap. He will also assume responsibility for building Trillium's worldwide capabilities in cybersecurity consulting and penetration testing.

Mr. Leale and his team will proactively work with Trillium's IoT and automotive customers on an on-going basis to identify and prevent "Zero-Day" exploits, ensuring that Trillium's customers remain among the safest on the planet. "I'm thrilled about this opportunity to join Trillium's world-class team and contribute to making it the global leader in automotive IoT penetration testing and vehicular cybersecurity consulting," he said.

Trillium was founded in 2014 with a team of executives and engineers from Japan, Europe and the US, with extensive experience in automotive networking, cybersecurity, embedded systems and IoT and provides a multi-layered suite of cybersecurity tools - SecureCar, SecureIXS and Secure OTA - and data-mining capabilities - SecureSKYE - to protect cars and IoT connected devices around the globe from cyber-attacks.
