Satcom Direct will also be putting on demonstrations of the SD Cyber Security Solutions portfolio, which combines the benefits of SD’s hardware routers, software services, ground infrastructure and technical expertise to protect business aviation data, complement the presentations. The portfolio also includes the SD Threat Monitoring Module, a feature supported by digital flight operations dashboard SD Pro. The proprietary software provides customers with current and previous views of network security, highlights potential threats, and identifies incidents. SD customers data is also fully encrypted from the air to the ground, while SD’s certified cybersecurity experts actively monitor data traffic to evaluate any risk.
