A new solution from GTMaritime counters a major cyber security weakness of ships at sea today by deploying critical software and security patches to protect shipboard systems before threats emerge. GTDeploy provides a software deployment platform to deliver security updates to ships wherever they are in the world ‘in the background’ without requiring intervention by IT staff or distracting crew.
A need for reliable data synchronisation over multiple systems first led Rocktree to GTMaritime, but the floating terminal operator now has much larger digital ambitions in its sights.
GTMaritime has announced that it has seen significant growth in the use of its secure, maritime optimised email software and other cybersecurity solutions as shipowners and operators step up a gear to harden onboard networks and protect their ships from digital threats.
GTMaritime has appointed satellite connectivity expert Keng Teen Phang (KT) as head of sales for Asia-Pacific to drive business development in maritime digitalisation and to help the region face up to fast-emerging disruptive cyber threats.
GTMaritime has launched GTMailPlus.Continuity, a now standard feature of its GTMailPlus service for the shipping and offshore industries, allowing users to access emails with complete security, even when their systems are unexpectedly offline.
GTMaritime has launched a new e-mail system for smaller vessels called SeaMail, targeting operators of barges, fishing vessels, inland cruisers and leisure craft.
GTMaritime reports that it has passed the milestone of having its software systems now installed on some 4,500 vessels worldwide, with more than 15 per cent of the installations having been completed since the beginning of May 2017.
GTMaritime has launched GTLitespeedMAX, a regional VSAT package providing 25GB for commercial use along with unlimited night-time data usage for crew between 9pm and 5am UTC.
GTMaritime has launched GTArchiving, a Cloud-based e-mail archiving platform that can store up to seven years of messages while retaining access for searching across numerous parameters in a matter of seconds.
Communications software company GTMaritime has released details of the level of unwanted e-mail traffic required to be blocked by its cybersecurity applications before being sent over satellite to ships at sea, with some 3.3 per cent of all messages constituting spam or viruses.
