CCX-1

CCX Technologies unveiled its SystemX™ Onboard Cyber Defence & Security Platform for Military at CANSEC, Canada’s global defense and security trade show.

In contrast to traditional solutions, the innovative software resides directly on networked systems to monitor the onboard network and third-party devices, straight from the aircraft’s location, providing alerts and automatic threat mitigation and defence.

“As concerns about and the number cyber-attacks on networked devices continues to rise, monitoring and understanding the security posture of your networked and distributed assets has never been more critical,” said Chris Bartlett, president of CCX Technologies.

“We built SystemX with features unique in the cyber defence and security market. For example, we can monitor MIL-1553 data directly on the aircraft because the solution is installed right onboard. This means that networked devices are monitored with our tailored intrusion detection system from wherever the aircraft is—in flight or on the ground. In addition, it features Home Country Service—whereby communications from devices on the aircraft are encrypted and securely transmitted to the operations centre. These are key capabilities that help the military defend their cyberspace.”
