Inmarsat, the leading provider of global mobile satellite communications, has unveiled its new Fleet Secure, a Unified Threat Management (UTM) and monitoring service that is powered by Singtel subsidiary Trustwave.
Fleet Secure will be commercially launched as a standard option on Inmarsat’s Fleet Xpress service, said Inmarsat.
Showcased at a recent industry event, Inmarsat claims that the solution is the maritime industry’s first and only fully-managed service to detect vulnerabilities, respond to threats and protect ships from widespread cyberattack.
Fleet Secure is service that will power cyber resilience at sea, offering vessel owners and managers continuous transparency on the status of their digital security and a 24/7 response to cybercrime.
It is designed to detect external attacks via high-speed satellite broadband connectivity, while also protecting vessel networks from intrusion via infected USB sticks and crew devices connected to the onboard LAN. Fleet Secure will seamlessly integrate with Fleet Xpress for no additional outlay on hardware and no impact on the customer’s contracted bandwidth.
