SHIPGUARD™

Information Technology (IT) services (servers, laptops, desktops PCs) are increasingly connected to the same infrastructure as Operational Technology (OT) systems which manage the operating and safety functions of a vessel. This interconnectivity provides a much better integrated user experience, but unfortunately brings with it the risks of cross-pollution of malware, viruses and ransomware.

SHIPGUARDTM is an integrated network cyber security system that allows IT and OT systems on a vessel to share resources and interact with each other safely.

YachtGuardTM also protects legacy equipment in an OT network where software patching is no longer viable.
