Anuvu renews Elcome deal to offer connectivity and cyber systems to maritime users

Connectivity services provider Anuvu has signed a four-year contract renewal with Elcome International to continue working together to serve maritime customers with connectivity and cyber security systems.

Maritime system integration firm Elcome is headquartered in Dubai and maintains 24 offices in 11 countries, extending from Europe to Southeast Asia. Together the companies offer Anuvu’s connectivity and new cyber security products to the maritime sector.

The cyber system allows customers to purchase their network security compliance directly from their communication service provider, focusing on operational technology (OT) network segregation and compliant topology, with customisable features tailored to each individual fleet.

Options include unified threat management, web filtering, a managed firewall, network antivirus and malware protection, an intrusion prevention system and centralised view and control over the fleet.

“This renewed partnership with Elcome sees the first deployment of our CyberSecurity solution, which will support maritime customers to comply with the recently updated IMO regulations that, as of January 2021, require all vessels to have cyber security systems in place,” said Brian Govanlu, Director, Systems Engineering, Maritime, Energy, Government at Anuvu.

“By innovating with Elcome and their shipping company customers, we have developed an agile solution that enables us to continuously adapt to changes in the maritime industry, whether that’s new security threats or evolving customer requirements. We are proud to now have a standardized product that can protect every vessel in a customer’s fleet.”
