The Mailock solution from Beyond Encryption will allow Goonhilly Earth Station to securely distribute and receive data around the world with its global partners, via an additional level of secure email communications.
Cornwall-based Goonhilly Earth Station utilises a deep space antenna with associated network and mission operation centre facilities, and is working on replicating these globally in collaboration with partners.
The aim of this development is for Goonhilly to become the world’s first private global deep space communications network, supplementing the capacity offered by the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the European Space Agency (ESA).
In addition, the satellite communications provider is in the process of establishing a Space AI Institute with High-Performance Computing (HPC) infrastructure, to facilitate space-related applications of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).

“In order to implement the best possible data protection practices for our own business and our global partners, it is vital we utilise the highest standard of encryption, and identity verification, to protect our partners against intervention, interception and cyber crime,” said Alex Tweed, IT systems manager at Goonhilly Earth Station.
“Beyond Encryption’s Mailock met our standards and requirements, and we look forward to working closely with them in the future.”
Paul Holland, Chief Executive, Beyond Encryption, commented: “Goonhilly provides world-beating connectivity, operational solutions and data services.
“Interestingly, Goonhilly’s data centre services and AI & ML capabilities are particularly relevant in the financial services sector, and the companies we work with.
“With Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) issues becoming increasingly significant, we are also looking forward to understanding their Earth Observation (EO) work to help us, and the businesses we work with.
“For Mailock to be selected as their chosen digital security solution is a tremendous endorsement for the company.”
