By having an open, agile work process, we invite our customers to become engaged colleagues. We are a collaborative speaking partner, fully focused on the automotive industry and dedicated to delivering scalable, flexible and secure solutions that shorten time to market.
We see again and again that an open and collaborative environment and an agile way of working is the key to achieving the best possible end result together with our customers. Working in this way results in action, responsiveness to change, and high customer value.
And it is fun too!
At WirelessCar, we have been working in an agile way for years, and over time refined a rock solid and ever improving way of working that enable us to deliver beyond expectations. For us, working in an agile way means that our customer teams work very closely with you as a customer. That way, we can quickly understand your underlying needs, and quickly respond to changing conditions. In order to be truly efficient, we give our teams as big of a mandate as possible. At the same time, our leadership is always there in the background to remove barriers, prioritize and enable us to create as much value as possible by observing and building awareness.
To focus on customer value at scale, and really benefit from our aggregated industry know-how, we use the SAFe framework for our development. For us a 12 week cadence increment plan with several program release trains makes us focus on how to handle dependencies, risks and integrations between the basic functions and the different customized services, and to learn from each other.
This method, coupled with a curious mindset and a desire for change and trying new things, really accelerates the outcome. Even after more than twenty years in the business, there is truly a start-up feeling to our company. We share our ideas, try them out together and learn together – constantly.
Once we have gotten to know you, we present a possible solution that will match your needs. In almost no time, we can set up test environments and sandboxes where we can test new ideas together with your developers and partners. We are also able to quickly assemble teams and start delivering value. The goal is always to create truly valuable solutions that will benefit your business and your customers.
In us, you have a reliable, transparent and efficient partner. Our people, and our agile, collaborative way of working, make us who we are, and have taken us to where we are today.
We build on our back-end service APIs, proven design patterns and industry know-how which means rapid deployment, great scalability and a high level of security – at a competitive price.
We have worked with many different car makers over the years, and gained a unique experience as digital service provider for the automotive industry. To make you benefit from this we build your solution on our back-end service APIs, proven design patterns and our industry know-how according to our architectural principles for top quality.
This means rapid deployment in new markets, great scalability and a high level of security – at a competitive price. It also allows you to move up the stack and focus on what differentiates your brand and brings your customers value.
To honor your confidentiality, your customer’s privacy and to be compliant with data protection regulations privacy by design and privacy by default are cornerstones in everything that we do. The services and data generated within your solution is separated from other customers at all times by means of trust and regulations.
We know that our deliveries are business critical, save lives, and that they need to be managed with service and car life cycles in mind. That's why we build, test, manage and support all our services with an end-to-end service assurance perspective
The time when connected digital services were merely a nice accessory to have in your car, is long gone. You know it and we know it. Attractive, stable and secure services are core to your delivery, and may be a significant reason why customers choose your cars over those of other car makers.
To secure top experience from your digital services, these are some of the things we can do for you:
We work at the forefront of our business, and often in uncharted territory. How fortunate then that we are curious, and love exploring and finding new paths forward.
Ours are empowered employees, who dare to try and who are not afraid of sharing their ideas. To encourage this mindset, we regularly collect and explore new ideas in an idea funnel, brainstorm about them, and evaluate and test them together with our customers. Regardless of whether an idea fails or succeeds, it always provides a a valuable lesson that we can grow from.
As a framework, we believe that innovation is driven by well-understood challenges, and an understanding of what brings value for your end-users, and thereby business value for you as a customer. Our long-time collaborations with many of the biggest car makers in the world – and a great number of ecosystem partners – have proven our skills and inventiveness in the past, and prepared us for tackling future challenges head on. And when we do, we do so with a dare-to-do-it attitude!
Everything we build follows a set of guiding principles, in order to ensure solutions that are secure, scalable and smart.
Everything we build follows a set of guiding principles:
Cloud-based solutions have many benefits, such as shortened time to market, scalability, security and flexibility. We have built services for the cloud for quite some time, know many different providers, and are used to adapting our services to a variety of contexts. Whatever your cloud environment looks like, we are prepared.
Hosting connectivity solutions from the cloud has many benefits. Cloud services offer great stability and up-time, scalability, flexibility, and they help accelerate global roll-outs.
WirelessCar has been operating our solutions from the cloud since 2015. We have the technical, commercial and legal experience to ensure that our customers get the full benefits of this arrangement.
The trend in IoT is that more computing is done on the device side (the Edge). Cloud vendors provide services that help distribute and manage the applications that run on the Edge, from their cloud. This reduces development efforts, and speeds up the deployment of connectivity solutions. The Edge-to-cloud capabilities offered by cloud providers will increasingly be implemented in vehicles over time as well. We lead our customers in this transition by supporting the Edge/cloud platform that is the most suitable for a particular car maker. In parallel, where our services are independent from any Edge solution, we deliver our multi-tenant services from the WirelessCar cloud, and focus on maximizing customer value, avoiding investments in overhead to become cloud agnostic.
As a leading innovator of digital vehicle services, we provide scalable and secure solutions where cybersecurity and data protection are in our DNA. We do this by applying secure by design principles to address the unique characteristics of the connected car and its services. We leverage our twenty-five years of experience in the domain, proven by proactive systematic risk management and being ISO27001 certified, VDA-ISA compliant as well as following NIST and UN R155 regulations for cybersecurity and privacy controls. Our approach to security is one of the reasons many OEMs trust and partner with us.
We believe in 360° security coverage, which is why we design and build for secure solutions from the start. We do so by optimizing the golden triangle - People, Process and Technology--and the three pillars of information security - Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability.
WirelessCar Cybersecurity Capability Model (WCCM) is a model inspired by the NIST Cybersecurity Framework that we use to improve our security posture and cyber resilience. This is one of the core components in our overall security architecture that spans over operational, tactical and strategic security decisions. In addition, we use international cybersecurity standards such as ISO 27001, VDA-ISA, UN R155 and NIST 800-53 to reduce cybersecurity risk. This allows us to continuously improve our solutions and keep up with the evolving changes in the cybersecurity landscape.
To ensure that security is part of every implementation, a dedicated Security Architect is assigned to the customer program. The Security Architect acts as an advisor and oversees the security posture from a holistic point of view.
We carry out Threat Analysis and Risk Assessments regularly throughout the system's lifecycle to ensure that we reach desired security goals and keep assets and information protected at all times.
By applying DevSecOps, we ensure that security is integrated in every phase of the software development lifecycle. This enables our development teams to deliver secure code while maintaining speed.Our agile way of working ensures that we continuously improve our security posture in our existing services, delivering long-term value for our customers.
To combat the ever-increasing cyber threat and attack landscape, a series of security controls are thoughtfully layered to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information. A multi-layered, redundant approach ensures a robust security posture, allowing the system to handle multiple attack vectors.
We reduce the attack surface by proactively monitoring our libraries and components for vulnerabilities and potential exposures, as well as implementing an automated life cycle control. As with everything in cybersecurity, the smaller the target, the harder it is to hit!
We carefully consider the requirements of data collection, storage, archival and deletion to ensure that the appropriate security measures are applied. We work with data privacy processes based on established standards and regulations to ensure that we align with the shifting regulatory landscape.
We follow the AWS Well-Architected Framework when building our cloud infrastructure, focusing on operational excellence, security, reliability, performance efficiency and cost optimization. The framework provides a consistent approach to evaluate cloud architecture and implement designs that can scale over time.
