The new cybersecurity solution offers the option for end customers to purchase their network security compliance directly from their global communication service provider. The solution focuses on operational technology (OT) network segregation and compliant topology with many other features tailored to each individual fleet.
Anuvu’s cybersecurity product provides maritime customers with benefits such as unified threat management, web filtering, a managed firewall, network antivirus and malware protection, an intrusion prevention system and centralised view and control over the fleet.
Brian Govanlu, director, systems engineering, maritime, energy, government at Anuvu, said: “This renewed partnership with Elcome sees the first deployment of our cybersecurity solution, which will support maritime customers to comply with the recently updated IMO regulations that, as of January 2021, require all vessels to have cybersecurity systems in place.
“By innovating with Elcome and their shipping company customers, we have developed an agile solution that enables us to continuously adapt to changes in the maritime industry, whether that’s new security threats or evolving customer requirements. We are proud to now have a standardised product that can protect every vessel in a customer’s fleet.”
Jimmy Grewal, executive director of Elcome, commented: “The maritime industry is growing increasingly aware of the vulnerability of ships and shore-side IT infrastructure to cyber attacks that can have disastrous consequences. Our strong relationship with the team at Anuvu enables us to offer our customers the most up to date connectivity and cybersecurity solutions available.”
