Introduction

The webinar discusses the proactive steps which GTMaritime have taken, to identify and implement improvements to our flagship GTMP software, in order to assist with mitigating the threat of malicious malware attacks.

In recent times the maritime industry has become increasingly conscious of growing cyber security threats. It is a prevalent topic on all social media platforms and of course features heavily too in industry press. At a time where malicious threats are becoming ever more frequent with high profile attacks affecting daily operations at sea and costing thousands of dollars, safeguarding against corruption is high on everyone’s agenda.

As a direct response to cyber attacks and to protect your vessel operations, GTMaritime have developed a three pronged approach, by embedding Advanced Threat Protection, Anti-Phishing and Archiving features into GTMailPlus as standard. These features will not be version dependent and will soon be rolled out by GTMaritime, using hub based controls. This means no intervention will be required by our customers, or the vessels themselves ensuring a smooth and seamless enhancement process.

Advanced Threat Protection

 ATP, is our advanced threat protection feature.

By fully integrating with expert providers we can now deliver industry leading safeguards against the latest malware techniques. Traditional anti-virus solutions rely on effective signatures to detect malicious content; while ATP operates by analysing the file behaviour in a safe environment to establish and negate risk, prior to delivery. This allows us to successfully target and detonate zero day risks, where such signatures are not yet available.

Archiving

Archiving is an integrated cloud-based email archiving platform providing customers with quick access to data. It provides a robust and scalable solution enabling customers to manage mailboxes, e-discovery and litigation assistance resulting in the need for fewer IT resources and ultimately lowering costs.

 

Anti-Phishing

Anti-Phishing is designed to give you comprehensive protection against the latest type of email social engineering attacks. Phishing is a type of attack often used to steal data, including login credentials and bank details. It happens when an attacker, masquerading as a trusted entity, tricks a victim into opening an email. The recipient is then tricked into opening a malicious link or responding with sensitive information, which can lead to the installation of malware, the freezing of the system or the revealing of sensitive information. An attack can leave to devastating results, this includes prolonged operational down time, the stealing of funds, or identify theft. GTMaritime’s Anti-Phishing solution detects and prevents against phishing attacks, safeguarding your communication and potentially saving you millions.
