Inmarsat and Singtel have entered into a strategic partnership to offer a new maritime cyber security service using Trustwave’s Unified Threat Management (UTM) solution.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Trustwave, the cyber security arm of Singtel, will provide the software based UTM service to be integrated with Inmarsat hardware on board ships, to protect data and reduce cyber risk for maritime companies.

The UTM service offers firewall, anti-virus, intrusion prevention and web-filtering, and will be delivered through Fleet Xpress.

“Our partnership with Inmarsat is important as it marks the first phase in rolling out Singtel cyber security services for Inmarsat; starting with maritime,” said Andrew Lim, managing director, business group, group enterprise at Singtel.

“Shipping still moves about 90 per cent of the world’s trade, hence the maritime industry is a significant backbone of the global supply chain. As maritime systems become more digital, it is imperative for the industry to protect data on board ships against all forms of cyber attacks. Our partnership with Inmarsat will provide maritime companies with a cyber security solution to meet rapidly evolving cyber threats, globally.” 

The new maritime cyber security service is expected to be launched in the second half of 2016.{/mprestriction}
