World-Link expands cyber security options

World-Link Communications has expanded its ShipSecure maritime cyber security platform, adding new modules to strengthen the cyber defences of its users.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}ShipSecure is a multi-layered fleet security management system used to protect, monitor and control a fleet security network from a single management portal. It can offer real time visibility of threats and protection, and the ability to control the onboard security infrastructure, the company says.

“Building on our highly successful ShipSat platform, we deploy virtual machine and Cloud-based technologies to integrate onboard unified threat management (UTM) devices and sensors, alongside Cisco’s latest threat intelligence Cloud-based services to deliver an end-to-end maritime cyber security platform,” said Asad Salameh, president of World-Link Communications.

“Integrating with Cisco technologies allows us to offer our customers access to the latest global threat intelligence and the latest in next generation IPS/IDS firewalls.”

ShipSecure delivers policy-based protection, using real-time and historical data analysis. By collecting data from onboard security sensors, anti-virus and anti-malware software, and onboard network firewalls, the system is used to identify threats across the fleet, isolate the problem area, and take remedial action.

In June of last year, World-Link launched ShipNet, a fleet vulnerability management system, that measures and rates an individual vessel’s critical vulnerabilities, testing against a continuously updated database of more than 50,000 vulnerabilities.{/mprestriction}
