GTSentinel is a comprehensive antivirus solution, optimised for the maritime market and designed to protect the vessel whilst minimising the impact on communication networks. GTSentinel utilises the industry leading, well respected endpoint antivirus solution from ESET.

Standard antivirus protection software is often not suitable for the maritime industry and will often fail to provide adequate protection, leaving vessels and businesses at risk.

GTSentinel, GTMaritime’s maritime optimised antivirus solution has been developed specifically to overcome the failure points within the maritime sector. Vessels are able to choose from receiving live, daily or weekly updates to allow them to manage their update requirements. In being able to choose their update preferences, vessels are able to manage their costs and use of airtime whilst keeping their systems up to date.

GTSentinel provides a unique serverless distribution. Known as the “Buddy System” this allows for peer to peer distribution of updates amongst devices meaning that the update only needs to be sent to the vessel once to allow for all devices to be protected. The deployment method has been updated for GTSentinel8, reducing the size of the files to make deployment easier.

GTSentinel, when coupled with the stable and secure end to end solution delivered by GTMailPlus, ensures your vessels have the highest level of protection against spam, viruses and malware.

Why use GTSentinel 8?

Machine Learning – GTSentinel allows administrators to utilise an aggressive machine learning mode for a deep inspection of the network, even without internet connection.

Advanced Memory Scanner – monitors the behaviour of a malicious process and scans it once it decloaks in memory to successfully discover and stop malicious attacks.

Network Attack Protection – improves detection of known vulnerabilities on the network level, another important layer of protection against the spread of malware, network-conducted attacks and exploitation of vulnerabilities.

Exploit Blocker – monitors typically exploitable applications such as browsers, email clients and more and focuses on exploitation techniques to block threats immediately on the machine.

Botnet Protection – detects malicious communications used by botnets and identifies the offending processes. Any detected malicious communication is blocked and reported to the user.

DNA Detections – while malicious code can be easily modified by attackers the behaviour of objects cannot be changed so easily and DNA detections are designed to take advantage of this principle.

Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) Scanner – checks and enforces the security of the preboot environment to monitor the integrity of firmware.

Host-Based Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) – monitors system activity uses a predefined set of rules to recognise suspicious system behaviour.

  • Live, daily or weekly automatic updatesOption to choose update frequency based on requirements. Live updates allows for zero day protection, receiving the updates as soon as they are released. Robust mechanism for updates to be delivered in challenging conditions.
  • Deployment size We have updated the method in which GTSentinel is available for distribution, reducing the size of the files to make deployment easier.
  • Unique serverless distributionPeer to peer distribution of updates amongst connected devices.
  • Monitors system activity uses a predefined set of rules to recognise suspicious system behaviour.Automatically scans all new devices, such as USB sticks, when inserted into protected machines.
  • Official support and alerts for server editionsFile servers work differently to traditional endpoint operating systems and require software tailored to the job.
  • Remote automated log retrievalNo longer have to liaise with the vessel for log retrieval reducing support time.
  • Simple installAutomated download, installation and distribution to all networked devices.
  • Compatible with Windows 10GTSentinel 8 is compatible with the semi-annual Windows 10 update.

How it works

Without up to date antivirus software onboard, vessels’ systems are vulnerable. GTSentinel protects against viruses from multiple sources making sure your devices and systems are secure.

GTMaritime has partnered with ESET to deliver GTSentinel. ESET continually develop award winning, leading edge protection and use multi-layered technologies that go far beyond the capabilities of basic antivirus. ESET protect over 100 million users worldwide.

GTSentinel.Live and GTSentinel.Standard versions available. If GTSentinel.Live is not suitable for your vessel’s operating system, option to use GTSentinel.Standard.

  • GTSentinel stops over 500 endpoint attacks every month.
  • “Buddy System” allows for peer to peer distribution of updates amongst connected devices.
  • Ability to remotely monitor the update status of all workstations.
