Cydome joins Inmarsat partner programme

Maritime cybersecurity firm Cydome has signed an agreement with Inmarsat which will see Cydome join the group of over 40 Certified Application Providers (CAPs) offering applications for Inmarsat’s Fleet Connect service.

Fleet Connect is a dedicated bandwidth system that provides connectivity independent of the ship owner’s primary bandwidth, allowing application providers to have a two-way communication channel to the vessel for software data transfer.

Cydome’s cybersecurity application will be available to vessel operators directly through the Fleet Connect service following the deal, providing an option for Inmarsat customers to monitor their cybersecurity onboard, protect their vessels from current and evolving threats and comply with regulations.

“Utilising Inmarsat’s dedicated bandwidth and global network extends Cydome’s reach with shipowners and ship managers, enabling advanced fleet protection against cyber piracy. This also allows fleets to better prepare for the maritime cyber regulatory inspections and auditing,” said Nir Ayalon, Cydome CEO.
