ABS Wavesight adds cyber services with ActZero partnership

ABS Wavesight has announced a new alliance with managed detection and response (MDR) service provider ActZero, to work together in helping vessel fleets to defend themselves against cyberattacks.

The two companies plan to work together to deliver ransomware defence and response services to shipping companies alongside ABS Wavesight’s portfolio of vessel and voyage management tools.

“Offering ABS Wavesight users a cyber solution is not just a natural next step; it’s a necessary one,” said Paul Sells, CEO of ABS Wavesight.

“While digitalised ships can offer powerful insights that help operators improve compliance and manage their journeys, connected IT systems come with risks—especially in today’s landscape.”

“ActZero has deep knowledge of that landscape, and its comprehensive services and commitment to keeping up with hackers’ changing techniques will help ensure maritime organisations are aware of any threats to their operations and ready to respond.”

The ActZero system employs AI detection to continuously test against the latest attack techniques, claiming an average threat-eradication time of 17 minutes.
