Marlink expands cyber portfolio with UTM

Marlink has added CyberGuard Unified Threat Management (CyberGuard UTM) to its range of maritime cyber security products, to assist shipping companies in dealing with a wider range of threats as they move forward with their digital transformation strategies.

The new system, built on a technology platform provided by Fortinet, adds to the CyberGuard modules Marlink already offers for threat detection and endpoint security, as well as its Security Operations Centre (SOC), remediation and response services. A CyberGuard portal is also available to customers to allow them to more easily visualise threats and apply remote remediation.

The features of the new UTM product include application control, web filtering, intrusion protection and anti-virus. An optional network level customised routing capability (including network segregation and intra-LAN) is also available.

“The digitalisation of the maritime industry and growth of the Internet of Things have the potential to significantly increase operational efficiency but require state-of-the-art solutions to protect both IT and OT assets,” said Nicolas Furgé, President Digital, Marlink.

“We developed the CyberGuard UTM solution to enable customers to benefit from this growing trend while maximising the protection of their IT and OT assets against cyber security threats.”

Marlink will provide CyberGuard UTM under a ‘Firewall as a Service’ model, which includes both provision at remote sites and within the central infrastructure at the client’s base of operations.
