[Satnews] Harris CapRock Communications, provider of managed communications services for remote and harsh environments, today launched SafePass™ Pro, an advanced cyber security solution for proactive defense against cyberattacks targeting oil and gas IT infrastructures. The solution also is available for cruise, maritime and other commercial customers.
Industry experts estimate cyberattacks against the global energy industry will cost businesses up to $1.9 billion by 2018. SafePass Pro improves network resources, minimizes malware and spyware, enables centralized control across all sites, enforces acceptable use and security policies (AUP), and provides an opportunity to assess and eliminate network vulnerabilities. SafePass Pro customers also will receive Harris CapRock’s 24/7 monitoring and support, network threat detection and vulnerability scanning.
The new cyber security solution includes Alert Logic threat monitoring services. Alert Logic Threat Manager provides network intrusion monitoring and detection, as well as a vulnerability scanner, while the firewall protection supports URL filtering, application filtering and security.
Customers also will have access to Harris Corporation’s industry-leading cyber security experts to pinpoint system vulnerabilities, monitor insider threats, proactively defend the network and respond to incidents. Harris experts protect networks that move 2 million air passengers a day and manage 150 Department of Defense satellites as well as numerous government installations.
“Security breaches and emerging threats to corporate networks are impacting the oil and gas market with greater cost and frequency as offshore operations rely more heavily on always-on communications networks,” said Tracey Haslam, president, Harris CapRock. “SafePass Pro offers an unparalleled approach to cyber protection with the added ability of working with Harris cyber security experts committed to securing critical government networks.”
