Maritime security specialist Naval Dome has come up with an innovative approach to managing the cyber security status of all protected systems onboard ships, allowing shipboard and shoreside staff to monitor and evaluate fleet-wide system data, even when they are offline.
Until now, only crew members have been able to access a ship’s offline data sets. The Naval Dome Dashboard collects and collates all the data captured by the company’s multi award-winning Endpoint cyber protection system for use either at the company’s HQ – where personnel can access both online and offline shipboard data – or onboard the vessel itself, to provide the master or chief engineer with a complete picture of the ship’s cyber status.
Naval Dome CEO Itai Sela says the Naval Dome Dashboard is particularly suitable for ships fitted with multiple, complex technologies. It can be tailored to the customers’ specific needs and can be integrated with existing dashboards.
Once the Endpoint system has gathered information from navigation and machinery equipment, such as ECDIS, RADAR, MCS and other critical equipment onboard, the data is accessed via an easy-to-navigate Dashboard display on a PC.
The Naval Dome Dashboard gives an exact picture of the critical equipment status, allowing users to quickly determine the number of PC-based systems onboard each ship and which of them are protected.
