The Problem:


The automotive industry is in the midst of an autonomous and electric vehicle revolution. Next-generation cars will be more than just means of transportation; loaded with sensors, displays, and high-speed networking, they are platforms that will deliver entertainment and information through tight integration with third-party services and applications. The connected car and the manufacturer’s backend systems will form the hub of this new ecosystem.

  • Cannot modify existing infrastructure because of high cross-functioning interdependency
  • Cannot modify third-party infrastructure due to security and legal risks
  • Ecosystem requires multiple companies to agree on infrastructure architecture and security responsibilities
  • Ecosystem is fragmented – domains are often siloed

The Zentera Solution:

Zentera’s CoIP Enclave solution enables applications to be distributed among multiple ecosystem participants. Participants can connect their datacenters together with application-aware access control. CoIP Enclave’s overlay network deploys along with the application, without requiring modification of existing network and security infrastructure.


  • Reduces security risks and IT complexity for connected car applications
  • Accelerates the formation of the connected car application ecosystem
  • Protects connected car backend servers from unauthorized access
