Speedcast International revealed its new Cybersecurity as a Service solution, a combination of applications and services to help protect customers against growing cyber threats. The solution aims to protect customers from cyber risks by defending customers’ assets, detecting and monitoring threats, and mitigating cyberattacks.

Cyberattacks can lead to business disruption, financial loss, damage to reputation, damage to goods and environment, incident response cost, fines and legal issues. The rapid increase in ransomware and malware attacks globally has led to an increase in cybersecurity regulatory requirements from organizations such as the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and the Baltic and International Maritime Council (BIMCO).

Cybersecurity as a Service combines a unified threat management system and end-point protection. Speedcast’s Security Operations Center (SOC) monitors the protection level of customer sites, provides alerts and reports, and protects against malicious threats. Cybersecurity as a Service can be operated from remote sites or vessels and runs on Speedcast’s integrated communication platforms Sigma Gateway and Sigma Gateway Xtreme.
