Inmarsat enhances cyber security offering
Inmarsat has introduced two new components to its maritime cyber security service, Fleet Secure, as it continues to develop solutions that combat ever-increasing cyber threats.
Vessel operators will benefit from a powerful, multi-layered endpoint security solution, Fleet Secure Endpoint, which is based on industry leading technology from ESET, a world leader in digital security, and powered by Port-IT and protects desktop computers and other systems connected to a vessel’s network.
Fleet Secure Endpoint has been developed to remove infections and thwart hackers before damage occurs to onboard endpoints and connected systems. The solution will be available for commercial use from January 2019 and is compatible across Inmarsat’s maritime portfolio of services, including Fleet Xpress, FleetBroadband and Fleet One. It also complements the resilience of Inmarsat’s own satellite and ground network enabling consistent cybersecurity standards to be maintained.
Inmarsat has also launched a training app for mobile devices, Fleet Secure Cyber Awareness. This enables seafarers to educate themselves on the tactics that cyber criminals might employ in attempting to infiltrate a company’s IT infrastructure.
