Totem Plus and Naval Dome enter cyber protection contract

Totem Plus has signed a licence agreement with Naval Dome for installation of its cybersecurity software across its automation and navigation solutions.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Totem Plus will integrate the Naval Dome software with the hard drives across several hundred systems in the Totem Plus portfolio. This is expected to provide the highest level of cyber protection at the system build stage, prior to shipment to end-users.

Capt. Azriel Rahav, chief executive officer, Totem Plus, said: “It is crucial for our customers to be supplied with systems that are protected at the very highest level. It is especially important for Totem ECDIS, the only ECDIS in the world offering Collision Avoidance DST. The Naval Dome system is the only dedicated maritime cyber security system to have so far achieved Security Level 4 under DNV GL CP-0231. There are currently no other OEMs supplying equipment embedded with this level of protection.”

The two Israel-based companies began working together in 2017 when the Naval Dome solution was used to protect the Totem Plus ECDIS, IMAC (Integrated Monitoring, Alarm & Control), VDR and BAM (Bridge Alert Management) installations aboard a 5000TEU containership.

All existing Totem Plus systems currently in operation, including ECDIS, VDR, bridge management and machinery control systems, can be automatically updated with the Naval Dome security system, when technicians carry out software upgrades. New orders for Totem Plus hardware can also be specified with the Naval Dome protection.

“Supplying equipment already installed with the Naval Dome technology not only delivers confidence to customers that our products are type approved to deliver the highest level of security, but they only need to have one point of contact: the OEM,” said Capt. Rahav.

Naval Dome CTO Asaf Shefi said: “I am delighted that Israeli-developed technologies are now at the very forefront of maritime cyber security. As the first original equipment manufacturer (OEM) licensed to integrate the Naval Dome software with its hardware, Totem Plus leads the way in the provision of equipment optimised for safeguarding against unauthorised penetration.”

On request, Totem Plus can also supply the Naval Dome Dashboard. This provides ship and shore personnel with an exact picture of the security status of the critical equipment onboard ships across entire fleet.

The Naval Dome software is encapsulated in existing maritime OEM vendor software and hard disks. It requires no change to the original software, nor does it change the operation of the Original Equipment Manufacturers’ software or systems.{/mprestriction}
