As the digitalisation of the maritime sector continues, both shore staff and crew onboard vessels have to ensure they implement practices and processes which protect critical vessel functions. OneGate protects against the introduction of cyber threats from users by separating the vessel management system from its crew welfare network. The crew is able to access social media networks, internet services, and online training resources while vessel operators are able to maintain a tight control over their communication budgets and usage with set credit limits on data usage and enable the link to be automatically disconnected when the limit is reached.
“Today, using OneGate, we can access all the ship operating systems from a central dashboard without needing to be present onboard. We can do in two minutes what previously took several months to achieve. The cost savings and greater efficiency of such a facility are significant,” says Alf Stian Mauritz, Managing Director, IEC Telecom Norway. One Gate provides multi-levels of protection by combining multilayered technology, machine learning, and human expertise to provide the best level of protection possible
