Cyber crime is an inevitable downside of a digital economy, so being protected has to be a priority for every fleet operator and ship manager, both shore-side and at sea.
The potential risks of a cyber attack on a vessel include:
As a member of the industry-led ‘Be Cyber Aware At Sea’ campaign, Inmarsat is committed to raising awareness of online risks and threats to the maritime community.
For over 37 years, Inmarsat has been trusted with seafarers’ safety. Now the maritime industry can rely on us to help keep their vessels cyber safe too.
Inmarsat has developed Fleet Secure to give shipping operators and managers the tools they need to protect their fleet from cyber attack, detect vulnerabilities, and respond to threats.
Fleet Secure is made up of three components – maritime-specific UTM, a choice of three managed service levels, and seamless integration with Fleet Xpress, Inmarsat’s next generation high-speed broadband satellite service.
Fleet Secure is available through Inmarsat Fleet Xpress value added resellers. Contact your local provider for more details.
The Fleet Secure UTM service is supported by Singtel subsidiary Trustwave, a leading cybersecurity company.
Drawing on their cyber intelligence and expertise, we have developed a comprehensive set of tools designed to continuously inspect, detect and protect all the data traffic going to and from a vessel. Maritime-specific threats have been defined and used to customize the Fleet Secure UTM, which seamlessly incorporates multiple security functions into a single service:
As well as detecting external attacks via the high-speed satellite broadband connection, vessel networks are also protected from intrusion via infected USB sticks and crew devices connected to the onboard WAN/LAN.
Backed by Trustwave’s extensive, ongoing cyber security research and development operations, Fleet Secure is designed to be one step ahead of cyber criminals and ensures a vessel is continuously protected today and in the future.
Fleet Secure is a managed service from Inmarsat. Customers have access to dedicated cyber experts round-the-clock, and have complete visibility of vessel security through one dashboard.
Continuous connection with the Trustwave Secure Operation Centre via Fleet Xpress ensures the UTM is kept updated and secure.
There is a choice of three managed service levels:
Fleet Secure is fully integrated into Fleet Xpress, so there is no additional outlay on hardware required. Customers simply pay a monthly fee, dependent on which service level is selected, with UTM data and updates entirely separate from their bandwidth usage.
Fleet Xpress is backed up by FleetBroadband, which maintains 99.9% availability and is accessible anywhere in the world, except the extreme Polar regions. This ensures vessels remain continuously connected to the Trustwave Secure Operations Centre.
Inmarsat owns the entire satellite and ground network, which adds an additional level of security.
