GT Maritime has agreed a deal with network-based malware protection specialists Lastline Inc to incorporate its cyber security technologies into the GTMailPlus vessel communication software system.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“The added security that Lastline will now deliver provides immense value to our customers,” said Robert Kenworthy, CEO of GT Maritime.

“It greatly diminishes the risk of malware infecting critical systems that could lead to devastating results. When the risks are this high, only the best technology will suffice.”

GT Maritime has deployed Lastline’s sensor technology in-line in full Mail Transfer Agent (MTA) mode within its e-mail software, to isolate, analyse and block malicious attachments and URLs before they are routed to recipients.

Evidence-based reporting will also be a feature of the integrated system, providing GT Maritime incident response engineers with a transparent record of any activity taking place in the network.

“We're honoured that GT Maritime selected Lastline for their malware detection,” said Brian Laing, Lastline CRO.

“We have a long history of partnering with market-leading companies that, after extensive vetting, identified Lastline as superior to alternatives. In such a unique market, we're pleased that we can do our part to ensure the safety of ships at sea, as well as their cargo and crews.”{/mprestriction}
