Singapore / London- Singapore Telecommunications Limited (Singtel) and Inmarsat (LSE:ISAT.L) have entered into a strategic partnership to enhance maritime cyber security using Trustwave’s Unified Threat Management (UTM) solution.

Trustwave, the cyber security arm of Singtel, will provide the software-based UTM service to be integrated with Inmarsat hardware onboard ships, to protect data and reduce cyber risk for maritime companies.

The UTM service offers a suite of cyber security defences, such as an advanced firewall, anti-virus, intrusion prevention and webfiltering, which is backed by global round-the-clock support. It will be delivered through Fleet Xpress, the first globally available, high-speed broadband solution for maritime and offshore operators, available from a single communications provider.
