IT Systems

A Yacht Office Network from VBH consists of the equipment, software and remote services used to conduct daily digital business on board a yacht. Technological advances are delivering ever more compact and energy-efficient storage and computers that require substantially less cooling capacity, space and energy. Feedback from users also indicates that the ability to collaborate on documents, start video-conferences and manage the network in a simple way is also a priority.

IT systems from VBH are reliable and easy to control, maintain and upgrade. Each is based on a careful choice of hardware and software elements, and is designed in such a way that it offers options to guarantee business continuity and data integrity, and provide secure remote access to documentation, emails and contacts.

Van Berge Henegouwen can also provide the IT network infrastructure on which the vessel’s other systems run. A typical solution consists of a virtualised server platform, a backup system, tools for systems management and wired and wireless networks. To prevent unauthorised access we offer a range of sophisticated security measures including encryption of date both in storage and in transit, traffic monitoring for intrusion detection and real-time security updates.
