GTMaritime has announced a partnership with CrowdStrike, a cybersecurity software provider, to add its endpoint security services to the GTMaritime portfolio.
The software-only system from CrowdStrike will be used to help shipping customers to ensure regulatory compliance and protect their vessels from known and unknown malware and zero-day threats.
Utilising AI-based Next Gen Antivirus (NGAV) with no signatures, CrowdStrike offers features such as the ability to isolate assets remotely, device control – including USB locking – and functionality to create group wide, ship, or endpoint specific policies. A shore-side management portal is available to allow the system to be installed and managed without the need for an engineer onboard.
The services will be made available by GTMaritime in different packages depending on requirements, with features like additional Security Operations Centre (SOC) services and real-time support available.
“We are delighted to be working with CrowdStrike and to be in a position to deliver one of the most advanced cybersecurity solutions to the shipping industry,” said Richard White, Global Commercial Director at GTMaritime.
“As cyberattacks continue to evolve and become increasingly sophisticated, it’s vital that ship owners and managers are equipped with the most advanced solutions to track and identify threats and protect ships and connected infrastructure.”
“Advances in satellite connectivity have allowed our clients to further integrate their ship and shore operations and CrowdStrike brings the necessary cyber protection that you would expect whilst being backed up by GTMaritime’s 24/7 support.”
