WARRINGTON (UK) ; GTMaritime, a leading provider of secure maritime data communication solutions, has announced its partnership with CrowdStrike, one of the world’s leading cybersecurity software providers. The partnership introduces the next generation of endpoint security to the maritime sector.
The software only solution from CrowdStrike is backed up by GTMaritime’s extensive maritime expertise to support regulatory compliance and protect ships from known and unknown malware and zero-day threats.
Utilising AI based Next Gen Antivirus (NGAV) with no signatures, CrowdStrike addresses gaps in legacy anti-virus solutions to provide full attack visibility and control. It includes a range of advanced features such as the ability to isolate assets remotely, device control – including USB locking – and functionality to create group wide, ship, or endpoint specific policies. With a comprehensive shore-side management portal, the solution can be installed without the need for an engineer onboard.
The new solution will be available from GTMaritime in two options depending on customer specific requirements. It can include additional Security Operations Centre (SOC) services from GTMaritime to assist users with IMO compliance, while also offering access to the company’s 24/7 support team.
Richard White, Global Commercial Director at GTMaritime said: “We are delighted to be working with CrowdStrike and to be in a position to deliver one of the most advanced cybersecurity solutions to the shipping industry. As cyberattacks continue to evolve and become increasingly sophisticated, it’s vital that ship owners and managers are equipped with the most advanced solutions to track and identify threats and protect ships and connected infrastructure.”
“Advances in satellite connectivity have allowed our clients to further integrate their ship and shore operations and CrowdStrike brings the necessary cyber protection that you would expect whilst being backed up by GTMaritime’s 24 / 7 support.”
