Totem Plus to integrate cyber protection into shipboard equipment

Totem Plus has signed a licence agreement with Naval Dome to incorporate the Naval Dome maritime cyber security software into its automation and navigation systems, integrated into the hard drives of the equipment at the build stage before delivery to customers.

The two Israel-based companies began working together in 2017 when the Naval Dome system was implemented alongside Totem Plus ECDIS, IMAC (Integrated Monitoring, Alarm & Control), VDR and BAM (Bridge Alert Management) installations aboard a 5,000 TEU containership.

All existing Totem Plus systems currently in operation will now be automatically updated with Naval Dome when technicians carry out software upgrades, while any new hardware orders can also be specified with Naval Dome protection.

“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,” said Capt Azriel Rahav, Chief Executive Officer, Totem Plus.

“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.”

“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.”
