Ships are increasingly using systems that rely on digitisation, integration, and automation, which call for cyber risk management on board. This is a result of the increase of threats faced due to evolving technology and techniques.

The INTEGRA Network has multiple layers of cybersecurity controls to maximise protection against threats. With an advanced firewall, web filtering and intrusion prevention, you'll have the means to stop threats that can be costly.

Sometimes security can be compromised from crew members downloading unprotected applications. INTEGRA Cybershield allows you to block these applications to help protect your crew.

INTEGRA Control Lite provides real-time category control for traffic initiated from the satellite terminal at the point it reaches our ground-based INTEGRA Network. It also benefits from the features included with INTEGRA See and INTEGRA See+.

Additionally, it gives access to real-time alerting and blocking capabilities at an application level, ensuring you control costs that can amount from over use.

With INTEGRA Control, you get all the features from Control Lite, See and See+ as well as real-time bandwidth management and application-level control for your satellite connection.

"We are already seeing the benefits of running our satellite services through the INTEGRA Network and can now identify the source of encrypted data being used on our vessels from any type of device, mobile, tablet or laptop."
