Fleet Secure Unified Threat Management

Fleet Secure UTM is Inmarsat’s response to assisting shipping operators and managers in protecting their fleet from cyberattack, 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 successful high-speed broadband satellite service.

Fleet Secure UTM is pre-installed on Fleet Edge and seamlessly integrates with Fleet Xpress on instant activation.

The Fleet Secure UTM service is supported by 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 data traffic going to and from a vessel, and on onboard networks. Maritime-specific threats are used to customise the Fleet Secure UTM, which seamlessly incorporates multiple security functions into a single service:

  • Firewall
  • Intrusion prevention system, with a dedicated virus signature library
  • Web content filtering to prevent access to unsafe or inappropriate websites
  • * Gateway anti-virus, used to scan web content as it is being accessed, looking for known viruses
  • Application control

In addition, external attacks are detected via high-speed satellite broadband connection, vessel networks are also protected from intrusion via infected USB sticks and crew devices connected to the onboard LAN.

Backed by Trustwave’s extensive, ongoing cyber security research and development operations, Fleet Secure UTM is designed to be one-step ahead of cyber criminals and ensures a vessel is continuously protected today and in the future.

Fleet Secure UTM is a cloud-based managed service. Customers have access to dedicated cyber experts round-the-clock, and have complete visibility of vessel security through one dashboard on-board as well as from shore.

Continuous connection with the Trustwave Secure Operation Centre via Fleet Xpress ensures the UTM is kept updated and secure.

Fleet Secure UTM is fully integrated into Fleet Xpress and is pre-installed on Fleet Edge. Customers simply pay a monthly fee, dependent on their service requirement, 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.
