Easy to install, and cyber secure
Our Cloud applications and services are enabled by installing a so-called CloudBox on board the vessel. This hardware unit, which is protected by a built-in firewall, is simply connected to the vessel’s internet connection, and an encrypted communication channel is established to the cloud server. The direction of this connection means that the vessel’s firewall can remain completely closed to any incoming connection attempts from outside the vessel, thus increasing the security level.
A polling mechanism in the CloudBox ensures bandwidth usage is kept to a minimum until a data transfer is requested. In order to further increase the security, a two-step login procedure is utilized to authenticate users. Additionally, our systems undergo regular cyber security tests.
