Zubie Team Spotlight: How I Zubie by Adrienne

Many years ago Steve Jobs was quoted as saying “people don’t know what they want until you show it to them,” and this couldn’t be truer with my Zubie device.  As the Operations Analyst for Zubie I’ve found this device to be a huge benefit in my life.  At first I didn’t know what to expect, but I remained opened minded, and boy was I surprised.

Protecting my family:

As a first-time mom, I’m super concerned with every detail of my daughter’s life including her comings and goings.  And since my fiancé and I share a car with her car seat in it, I’m able to see where my fiancé and daughter are at any given time with my Zubie App.  In addition to being able to see their location, I’m able to set up location notifications so if my fiancé takes her some place outside of our home I’ll get a notification which lets me know “Now may not be a good time to call him.”  I’m that over protected mom that doesn’t want him texting, calling, or doing anything but focusing on his driving with our bundle of joy in the backseat.

Early detection:

In addition to all these great features, it’s like we now have our own personal mechanic right at our finger tips.  It’s great to be able to log into the App and see the health of our car.  This is one less thing I have to worry or remind myself about.  Now our Zubie app does it for me.

Making my life easier:

I never thought in a million years that I would be using a device such as Zubie to connect me to my everyday life.  I can easily see the benefits of this product for companies to use, but personally I couldn’t conceive of it until now.  Now I don’t think I could live without my Zubie.  As the company continues to grow and add more features I’m looking forward to seeing how much more I can connect to make my life to make things just a little bit easier for me.  And for me the cost is PRICELESS for all the security and comfort I’m getting by having Zubie in our lives.

Zubie’s Ongoing Security Efforts Increase Public Safety for Drivers Everywhere

150 150 admin

Last month, Argus Security, an automotive security company, notified us of an issue in our device software that we worked to address immediately. We have no evidence that any customer’s vehicles were compromised. Since learning about the reports from Argus, we took swift action and made the appropriate changes to our development process in order to further strengthen our overall security practices.

Zubie takes security very seriously and we are constantly monitoring the evolving telematics landscape to ensure we are defending against the latest possible threats. As part of its continued effort, Zubie has gone through system-wide security testing to protect the safety of both its customers and products.  We work closely with the NCC Group, an international security firm with expertise in improving automotive cyber security, to conduct end-to-end audits of our entire solution.

“Using our knowledge and experience of working in the automotive sector, we worked closely with Zubie’s engineers to incorporate our findings into  Zubie’s development process and further support its ongoing customer security requirements,” said Ollie Whitehouse, Technical Director, NCC Group.

We appreciate Argus’ help in disclosing this issue in a responsible manner to help improve our overall security posture and increase protection for our customers.

Zubie embraces the practice of responsible disclosure, as it helps us achieve our mission of making driving safer, easier, and less expensive for everyone.
