Polaris takes on tools for aircraft cybersecurity
It's not a question of if, but when an aircraft will fall prey to a cyber-attack. Polaris aims to anticipate and neutralise threats before they manifest with SkyRay security.

US private aircraft management, charter and project management company Polaris Aviation Solutions is to adopt Cyviation's SkyRay aircraft security solution.

CEO and president Michael Santiago says: "In an industry lacking cybersecurity solutions, Cyviation provides the technology and tools that are desperately required, especially for business clients more sensitive to their privacy and safety. It is a pleasure to collaborate with an experienced team, and we are looking forward to continuing to innovate together."

Cyviation is an Israel-based cybersecurity company that provides remote fleet assessment, aircrew training and aviation security information. Its continuous, non-intrusive fleet assessment capabilities evaluate and map aircraft vulnerabilities, a process includes threat impact analysis, recommended mitigations and cyber resiliency to bolster and safeguard passenger and crew safety from malicious attacks.

Chairman Arik Arad says: "It's not a question of if, but when an aircraft will fall prey to a cyber-attack. We must consistently remain ahead of attackers, anticipating and neutralising threats before they manifest."

Market research company Technavio recently forecast expansion of the aviation cybersecurity market by $38.08bn between 2022 and 2027. Concurrently, aviation regulators worldwide are crafting and enforcing more stringent cybersecurity standards, underscoring the need for advanced protective strategies.

Cyviation CEO Avi Tenenbaum adds: "In a world where cyber threats are ever-present and regulatory measures continuously evolve, our mission is to provide the aviation sector with unparalleled cybersecurity defences."
