The collaboration will support product development projects for the automotive industry. Plans to cover also other industries are in the making.

With the emergence of software-defined vehicles, the automotive industry is more and more reliant on reliable and secure software solutions.

The collaboration covers research and advanced product development services to customers in the automotive industry. It covers both the development of customers' products and consulting for new advanced ideas and concepts.

“Together we provide a full team responding to customers’ software development needs combining cybersecurity in operational environments. In the projects with lots of connected devices and public cloud environments, we need to pay special attention to cybersecurity. This partnership creates true value for our customers allowing them access to strong cybersecurity expertise during product development”, says Ari Aalto, VP, Automotive, TietoEVRY Product Development Services. 

TietoEVRY delivers full software development services, hosting and maintenance, where cybersecurity in operational environments is an integral part. The partnership enables also VTT cybersecurity experts to join and collaborate with product software development project teams.

VTT provides advanced technology development for production environments especially in areas such as cybersecurity assessment, device and penetration testing, trusted platforms, wireless communications security, cryptography and authentication.
