Iron Man? Nope, just Blackberry.

Blackberry (BB) is getting back in the game. This time in the automotive industry.

Their phones aren't doing as well as they used to, but they've always been praised for the security in their mobile devices. The level of security BB offers has allowed companies that rely on cellphone use to give phones to employees without worrying about having to combat cyber security issues.

With 'connected' and autonomous vehicles on the horizon, blackberry plans to tweek the same security technology they use in their phones, to be better suited for automotive use. They're calling it, 'Jarvis'.

Jarvis will prove useful to automakers in areas like software development and security. John Chen, Blackberry executive chairman says the new security tool will scan all software based components in the vehicles within minutes, highlighting areas and vulnerabilities that need fixing.

Chen also says Jarvis will be customized for each automaker that gets on board and will be sold on a pay-per-use plan.

I like to imagine Iron Man's computerized in helmet assistant (that happens to go by the same name) saying something like "Sir, your systems are failing" when my engine light comes on. This sounds a little more hightech than that!
