The SD Network

The most comprehensive and secure infrastructure in the industry.

At SD, security isn’t a slogan, it is our culture. There is much more to an in-flight connectivity solution than the airborne piece. There is everything that happens on the ground side too. SD has invested more into Network Infrastructure than any other service provider in the industry.

SD’s network infrastructure enables your connectivity services to be richer, faster, and more reliable. Our data services are connected and secured by our wholly owned data center and worldwide Points of Presence (POPs), which form the backbone of our ground infrastructure. Unlike other service providers, SD does not outsource this critical step to third parties who do not understand the unique requirements of aviation. As a direct result, passengers get a better user experience than any other service provider can offer – even over the same network.

Plus, SD offers Cyber Threat Monitoring in SD Pro, providing operators with a real-time view of network security, potential threats, identified incidents and actions SD has taken to protect your data. Finally, the ultimate in aviation cyber security is the SD Private Network, which routes data traffic from your airplane back to your corporate HQ while remaining encrypted, and without ever touching the public internet.

Prepare and prevent.

Contrary to popular opinion, being in a business aircraft does not exempt you from a cyber threat. In-flight data security is vulnerable on two fronts. First is the technology environment. Even with the most secure devices or the latest security software, it’s always a matter of trying to stay one step ahead of any malicious actors. The second front in the battle for cybersecurity is human error. Even if your IT department is doing everything right to protect the company from a threat, a breach often happens because of a simple error by an employee or vendor.

To protect your company from a cyber-attack, you need to have an understanding of the threat landscape and visibility of your operations, coupled with the right technologies, policies, procedures, and controls.

SD offers a range of security solutions designed specifically for the flight department.​
