Sky and Space Global Ltd (ASX:SAS) has successfully integrated cybersecurity solutions from Check Point Software Technologies (NASDAQ:CHKP) into its nano-satellite network.

The tests to integrate the Check Point encryption hardware with the Sky and Space network has proved to be successful.

Sky and Space Global’s Pearls constellation mission is expected to have circa 200 autonomous narrowband communication nanosatellites in orbits by 2020, giving equatorial coverage of the Earth.

The company recently completed full capability tests for phone calls, instant message, voice recording and image transfers through its commercial demonstration nano-satellites.

Importantly, this is the first time that a voice call has been facilitated by nano-satellites and represents a breakthrough for the company and the telecoms and satellite industries.

Check Point is one of the largest cyber security vendors globally, providing solutions to protect customers from cyberattacks, malware and other threats.

During the test using Check Point software, phone calls and messages were encrypted before transmission and decrypted on the other side.
