Karamba Is Writing Software to Keep Your Connected Car from Getting Hacked

Because automotive cybersecurity is relatively new field of specialization, Karamba thinks there is room to make its software part of the electronic architecture for vehicles that are in development or yet to be designed. This May, the company announced $12 million in Series B funding, bringing the total amount invested to $17 million. Among investors is Fontinalis Partners, cofounded by Bill Ford Jr., the executive chairman of Ford Motor. Karamba says it has had 16 “engagements” with suppliers and automakers in the past year, but so far it has yet to announce a contract.
