Yep, that is 100% the immobilizer. If you need to use the car now, try the troubleshooting steps listed in the article, otherwise take it to the dealer. Some people have had the immobilizer go away by itself after a few hours. I have no clue why or how it could become activated by itself but it happens.

There is no easy way to disable or bypass the immobilizer, otherwise it wouldn't be a very good anti-theft device.
