Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. (K Line) has introduced a new AI-based cyber security platform.
The Japanese container carrier has installed Cybereason, which is provided by Cybereason Japan Corp. and adopted the firm’s monitoring and analysis service ‘Cybereason MDR (Managed Detection & Response)’ to enhance the cyber security of ship-shore communication in the ships managed by the group.
“Nowadays, it has become quite difficult to prevent highly sophisticated cyber-attacks by the ship’s conventional security solutions such as anti-virus software and firewalls, which have been the main security measures for ships,” K Line wrote in its statement.

In order to enhance the ship’s preventive security measures against intrusions and strengthen the response after intrusions, the carrier benefits from NGAV (Next Generation Anti-Virus *1), which can prevent all types of malware, and EDR (Endpoint Detection & Response *2), which is able to detect and respond to cyber threats that have slipped through conventional security solutions.
The next generation anti-virus solution detects and block all types of malware, including known and unknown malware, ransomware and fileless malware by malicious PowerShell, with dedicated defense layers such as signature-based and machine learning.

EDR service detects and responds to cyber-attacks in real-time by continuously monitoring the endpoint environment and analysing the behaviour of attacks by a unique AI-based analysis engine.
In addition, the cyber security experts monitor the shipboard security 24/7 through Cybereason MDR service.
