Marlink, a leading smart digital solutions company, has enhanced its cybersecurity portfolio with the addition of CyberGuard Unified Threat Management (CyberGuard UTM). This solution represents a significant stride in securing the digital transformation strategies of Marlink’s customers in the maritime industry.
Addressing Growing Cybersecurity Challenges
The maritime industry is experiencing an increase in cyber threats, necessitating robust protection for people and assets. CyberGuard UTM caters to these needs, particularly considering the rise of new LEO and 4G/5G services that offer greater bandwidth and lower latency, but also require enhanced onboard network security.
Comprehensive Security Features
CyberGuard UTM includes advanced features such as application control, web filtering, intrusion protection, and antivirus, with optional customised routing for network segregation and intra-LAN. Marlink offers this solution under a ‘Firewall as a Service’ model, ensuring both remote and central infrastructure protection.
Technological Foundation and Integration
The solution is built on the technology platform provided by Fortinet, deploying advanced firewall settings for network segregation and system redundancy. This leverages the virtualisation capability of Marlink’s ‘smart edge’ XChange application and Fortinet’s Unified Threat Protection software package, enhancing the overall security framework.
Enhancing Marlink’s Cybersecurity Portfolio
CyberGuard UTM is the latest addition to Marlink’s existing cybersecurity portfolio, which includes CyberGuard modules for Threat Detection and Endpoint Security, a Security Operations Centre (SOC), and Remediation and Response services. The CyberGuard portal also allows customers to visualise threats and apply remote remediation, enhancing their ability to respond to cyber threats effectively.
Marlink is a global leader in providing smart digital solutions, offering a range of services and technologies that connect people and assets in various industries, including maritime.
