Marlink expands cyber services

Marlink has expanded its range of cyber security services for maritime with the addition of a new Cyber Detection system which monitors all outbound and inbound network traffic and displays alerts through a web-based dashboard.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Users can also set-up notifications on critical threats to be received by e-mail or SMS, with support on potential responsive actions available from Marlink’s Security Operations Centre (SOC) as an optional additional service.

“With the increasing use of broadband communications and the fast deployment of new digital IT-based applications on board ships, cyber-security has become even more critical to fleet and business operations,” said Ghani Behloul, chief marketing officer, Marlink.

“Our multi-layered Cyber Guard solutions portfolio provides ship operators with a set of tools to better protect themselves and reduce their risk of exposure to a large range of cyber-attacks. By adding the innovative new Cyber Detection service, we enable our customers to even further secure the availability and integrity of their IT systems and networks.”

The Cyber Detection service does not require any equipment installation, and identifies more than 50 different threat categories (including malicious applications, intrusion attempts, confirmed intrusions, abusive usage and social engineering), whatever type of satcom technology is used to connect the ship.

The system combines machine learning and human oversight to counter threats, employing rule-based algorithms to detect malware or unauthorised activity on a network while wider ranging threats are investigated directly by Marlink’s SOC team.

“Augmented by the SOC team’s deep knowledge of how cyber criminals target maritime industry operations, continuous service tuning and data analytics, the dynamic nature of our Cyber Detection service enables the system to become more intelligent over time, improving its ability to detect advanced cyber criminality on a maritime customer’s network,” said Mr Behloul.{/mprestriction}
