Future-ready embedded cybersecurity to SPARQ OS

The partnership between Android-based IVI specialists P3 and cybersecurity leader VicOne, is good news for OEMs and consumers.

The new pre-integration enables the exceptional cybersecurity features of the VicOne Security app, based on VicOne Smart Cockpit SDK, in the SPARQ OS IVI ecosystem.



VicOne’s Smart cockpit solution provides a full range of cybersecurity protection functions for infotainment enabled by the SPARQ OS platform.

  • It prevents personally identifiable information (PII) and privacy breach through risky apps or browsers, thus safeguarding vehicle users
  • It blocks installation of backdoors, thereby averting remote manipulation of information on the IVI system
  • This automotive cybersecurity solution continually assesses privacy risks – including protecting email addresses, bank account numbers, credit card details, social security numbers, and beyond
  • Safeguards against data leaks and unauthorized access
  • Driver is alerted to resource-intensive apps to enhance smart cockpit driving experience and safety
  • Combined solution of SPARQ OS and VicOne enables users to stay informed, with 24/7 PII and privacy breach surveillance.

With VicOne, as soon as a data breach or insecure solutions are detected, customers are notified, enabling them to take action and protect themselves before it’s too late.​​ Any vulnerable Android Automotive apps using insecure communication or data storage methods are recognized, with future infiltration attempts prevented in the infotainment system.

The result is a safe and secure IVI environment, with content protection for driver and all the vehicle’s passengers.



OEMs which choose to deploy SPARQ OS IVI are alleviated of the requirement to develop or invest in separate cybersecurity measures. They and their customers, benefit from IVI-specialized VicOne protection right out-of-the-box.

With cars becoming supercomputers on wheels, this leaves certain security gaps that attackers can use to victimize car makers, their suppliers, and car owners with far reaching consequences for vehicle operation and vehicle security. Thus, the combination of comprehensive threat intelligence with network security expertise is more critical than ever. Encased in the connected car experience is the ability to protect users against potential cyber-attacks.
We’re delighted to partner with P3 and join the increasingly popular SPARQ ecosystem to deliver future-ready always-on protection for SPARQ users everywhere.
