The partnership with Argus Cyber Security follows a successful collaboration for an automotive customer where the Argus Control Flow Integrity product was integrated to work with Green Hills Software’s optimizing C/C++ compiler. The joint solution will be seen making safety-critical ECUs secure in the vehicles of one major European OEM in Calendar Year 2021. Taking advantage of the Green Hills C/C++ Compiler’s existing security and safety features, the Argus Control Flow Integrity integration now supports AUTOSAR classic devices running on the Renesas RH850 processor family. The solution provides protection from cyber attacks including buffer overflows with zero false positives.
