Advanced Connectivity will be accessible via an accompanying app, which monitors network usage and lets the driver choose to authorise or bar users from the car’s mobile network.
Viasat’s Active Cyber Defence system also protects from data theft and ransomware attacks. Advanced Connectivity was announced last week, and is available now on Bentley’s Mulsanne range before it comes to all Bentleys next year.
Bentley said it will be the only car maker with access to the technology for at least 12 months.
Bentley has a range of accompanying mobile options for its cars; drivers and passengers can control on-board climate, entertainment, and seat options via mobile devices, including Apple Watch.
The company has also piloted Bentley on Demand, which when rolled out will let Bentley owners request a different Bentley model for “special occasions”.
