Naval Dome adds software-based cyber protection for OT systems

Naval Dome has introduced a new software-based cyber protection system for installation on various ship, port, or offshore OT systems, including navigational equipment, machinery control systems and cargo handling equipment.

S-Marine Dome and S-Port Dome will be offered as a lower level alternative to the company’s Security Level 4-certified T-Model system, with the new services aimed at operators that wish to add additional cyber protection for shipboard equipment without having to go through type approval processes.

“We have introduced the S-Model to provide an easy-to-install, Level 2 security solution to offer an immediate remedy to the cyber problem,” said Naval Dome Vice President, Business Development, Ido Ben Moshe.

“While Naval Dome offers DNV GL SL4-certified cyber security thorough its T-Marine and T-Port Dome solutions, these have been developed primarily for installation by original equipment manufacturers (OEM). Until now, there has been little by way of an effective software solution which operators can use to immediately protect their systems. The S-Model fills that void.”

The new software-based systems are compatible with DNV GL SL2 class requirements and all PC-based OT systems, irrespective of the system type or brand, the company says.

The technology provides prevention, detection and alert capabilities, blocking unauthorised network intrusions and exe files from running on the computer, as well as running an Endpoint security event logger to defend systems against Denial of Service (DoS), Ransomware, Zero-day and Malware attacks.
