Nov 13, 2017 | Press Releases

Navarino has released Angel, its cyber security service at its annual Partner Event in Athens. Angel is compatible with any satellite network or IP based communication solution and is a fully managed service. It is comprised of maritime-oriented Intruder Detection and Intruder Prevention Systems, with a dedicated security team that monitors vessels 24/7. As a result, Angel provides oversight, threat alerting and control over the vessels entire network. The Angel security team monitors and correlates all security logs and events, identifying threats and distinguishing them from false alerts. Based in the Angel Security Operations Centre, they analyze the threat landscape, alerting when necessary and reporting at specific intervals to ensure that Angel operates smoothly, with all application and signature updates performed when needed. Angel is built on Juniper’s SRX software, while Neurosoft configures the system and carries out the monitoring in a Security Operations Centre, a team dedicated to monitoring Navarino vessels.

Head of Product Management, Nik Papanikolaou said ‘The cyber threat is becoming ever more prevalent in the maritime industry and it is no longer an option to wait for an attack before taking action. Angel is the first cyber security service designed and developed to cater to the unique requirements of the merchant marine IT environment. The core component of the service is a Unified Threat Management platform designed to be exclusively hosted within the latest release of Infinity Plus or Infinity Cube. With Angel, our customers can proactively take effective steps to protect their vessels and their business from the broad range of threats that a cyber-attack can result in and we are delighted to be able to bring this solution to market for any type of satellite network.’
