For the 3rd consecutive year, Singtel Satellite clinched the coveted award at the Asia Communications Awards (ACA) organised by Total Telecom at Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel on 24 May 2017. This year, the judges were impressed by Singtel Satellite’s work on cyber-security and working with partners in the emerging market and maritime sector.
Cyber security is a pressing issue with the proliferation of cyber-attacks causing increasing damage to companies, governments and individuals. The Maritime industry which relies heavily on technology across all fronts from onshore and shipboard operations to navigation at sea, is similarly susceptible to cyber-breaches. Singtel and Inmarsat entered into a strategic partnership to offer a fully managed security service, using Trustwave’s Unified Threat Management (UTM) solution. Trustwave, the cyber security arm of Singtel, provides the software-based UTM service which is integrated with Inmarsat hardware onboard ships, to protect data and reduce cyber risk for maritime companies.
Satellites have always been the communications technology of choice for emerging markets. It plays an increasingly important role for businesses and transforming lives of individuals.
