A9X has exclusive rights to distribute VoodooShield to the maritime industry. After researching several top anti-malware software solutions, A9X found that VoodooShield was the best solution for ships and remote worksites providing customers with absolute protection against the 300,000 plus new malware released every day. One of the key benefits of VoodooShield is its ability to block any new zero-day cyber threats and act as a “lock” as opposed to traditional anti-virus which acts as a filter and cannot prevent zero-day threats from infecting your PC. VoodooShield is a very smart solution and utilizes machine learning and AI technology which allows for safe internet access at all times. In addition, and unlike traditional anti-virus it requires no large virus signature file and engine updates making it perfect for low bandwidth and pay per MB Satcoms used onboard vessels.
