How we are different
Ship-wide protection - This is particularly important, as coverage of part of a vessel or its systems will not fully protect the ship if the attacker can penetrate from another vector. Unlike other operators who can only secure parts of a vessel, Cydome provides protection of the whole ship - none of the solutions provided today by the communications and satellite providers can offer such full-spectrum coverage. Cydome is an innovator in cybersecurity for maritime which has satisfied the needs for cyber protection for IT, OT and IoT networks and systems of some of the most technically demanding ship operator teams in the world. The coverage also includes protection from 3rd party vendors’ access to the ship. Dozens of vessels and a couple of hundred devices are currently being monitored onboard.
Cydome invests a large amount of its profits into research and development to ensure its solutions are always up to date and preventing attacks with the specific maritime requirements, being the only cybersecurity real-time solution onboard ships to gain certification by the Maritime Classification Society RINA as RINA Certified Cybersecurity Solution. Cydome also partnered with Constanta maritime university, to solidify their commitment and to act as a joint hub for all maritime participants to contribute to the cyberthreats database.
Compliance with regulations – The solution is designed to assist ship owners and operators to effectively validate ongoing compliance with international maritime regulations. The solution provides fleets with cost-effective, automated inspection and analysis tools to conduct cybersecurity gap analysis under the appropriate maritime regulations. Cydome is the first international Certification Body for the “Maritime Cyber Baseline”, a scheme developed by the IASME Consortium together with the Royal Institute of Naval Architects, verifying ship compliance.
