Totem Plus to align cyber security with navigation equipment

Totem Plus reports that it has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with security company Naval Dome to add a cyber defence system as a supplemental option to its PC-based navigation and automation systems.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The two Israel-based companies began working together last year when the Naval Dome system was installed to protect Totem Plus ECDIS, IMAC (Integrated Monitoring, Alarm & Control), VDR and BAM (Bridge Alert Management) installations aboard a 5,000 TEU containership.

“We are proud to be a pioneer of cutting edge maritime systems. Being able to offer the first maritime multi-layer cyber defence solution with our navigation and automation systems provides unrivalled protection to our customers. I don’t think any other ECDIS provider can offer this level of security without impacting performance,” said Capt Azriel Rahav, chief executive officer, Totem Plus

“We opted to partner with Naval Dome because its cyber security solution is proven to offer affordable multi-layer protection designed specifically for maritime application. As a stand-alone device it doesn’t have to be integrated, so it can be used with any connected or unconnected system onboard ship. It is intelligence grade cyber protection that requires minimal human interaction.”

The cooperation agreement with Totem Plus follows an earlier Memorandum of Understanding that Naval Dome signed with Lloyd’s Register to help establish standards and guidelines for maritime cyber defence.{/mprestriction}
