Elcome International, one of the world’s largest distributors of nautical charts and publications, has created a new secure tool to prevent viruses, malware or corrupted files from being introduced into ships’ navigational computers.

The package includes a special protected USB 3.0 flash drive and custom client software that makes it impossible for infected files to be introduced into the ECDIS and other networked ship systems when uploading electronic charts and updates.
