World-Link strengthens its ShipSecure platform

ShipSecureWorld-Link Communications has announced to strengthen its ShipSecure maritime cybersecurity platform by integrating a full suite of services that deliver the next generation of cybersecurity demanded by the world’s fleets

ShipSecure is a multi-layered fleet security management system that is designed to protect, monitor and control the global fleet security paradigm from a single management portal. It offers real-time visibility of threats and protection, and the ability to control the total onboard security infrastructure end to end from the internet to the PC.

However, the addition of new modules means ship owners and managers can benefit from a cybersecurity system that truly has its finger on the pulse.

Utilising the ShipSat platform, virtual machine and cloud-based technologies are used 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 cybersecurity platform.

ShipSecure integrates with CISCO technologies to offer the ship access to the latest global threat intelligence and the latest in Next Generation IPS/IDS firewalls.

ShipSecure delivers policy-based protection, real-time and historical data analysis and the management tools necessary to overview the cybersecurity paradigm of a fleet. By collecting data from onboard security sensors, anti-virus and anti-malware software, and onboard network firewalls, a security IT manager can identify threats across the fleet, isolate the problem area, and take immediate remedial action to minimize the effect of any threat or breach.

In June 2017, World-Link launched ShipNet, a fleet vulnerability management system, which gives fleet IT managers access to all of their vessels’ networks. Using the system, the IT manager can measure and rate an individual vessel’s critical vulnerabilities, as well as provide remedial action to resolve those vulnerabilities. ShipNet tests against a continuously updated database of more than 50,000 vulnerabilities.
