Value added service Satcom Global Anti-Virus


Vessel network security is becoming ever more important as maritime users increasingly face the threat of cyber-attack and viruses. 

Satcom Global’s bespoke anti-virus solution provides reliable protection for on-board infrastructure, whilst minimising the amount of valuable data required to keep anti-virus fully up to date. Our lightweight yet powerful solution based on the ESET NOD 32 antivirus software, enables you to get on with day to day operations, without worry.

  • Our anti-virus solution uses the award winning ESET NOD 32 antivirus software to guard vulnerable entry points, provide proactive response to threats and quick on-demand scanning.
  • Setup is quick and easy, managed remotely by our technical team.
  • Updates are sent via AFT to a dedicated folder on the main comms PC, which will then be configured to share the updates with all machines on board the vessel.
  • Following the initial update, weekly Nano updates ensure protection is kept fully up to date and one step ahead of the latest threats.
  • Smaller than traditional anti-virus updates, our Nano updates average approximately 400kb per week, making them suitable for a wide range of maritime users, including those with modest data communication bundles. If required, we can even pause an update for a week until a monthly data allowance is reset.

Terms and Conditions

  • Vessels must have IPSignature 3 installed for AFT capability
  • Setup includes initial full update which is approximately 50MB in size. Following the initial update Nano updates will be sent weekly to keep protection fully up to date. If a vessel misses 4 weeks of Nano updates, it may be required to receive the full update again.
  • For optimum protection, we recommend vessels also complete a full update to ESET servers for programme components at least every 6 months. We suggest that that is done whilst docked in port where a land based data connection is available.

  • Transfer of licenses is not available within the 12 month commitment term
