Honeywell released an operational technology (OT) cybersecurity solution on November 2nd to help users protect the availability, reliability and safety of their industrial control systems (ICS) and operations. These products include Advanced Monitoring and Incident Response (AMIR) dashboard software and state-of-the-art Cyber App Control (CAC), providing 24/7 intelligent Bring threat detection to your organization.
AMIR is built on Honeywell’s security, industrial automation and safety experience and knowledge. It is reported that he will enhance his OT cybersecurity across the enterprise by enhancing the cybersecurity function of the Security Operations Center (SOC). AMIR provides threat detection, security monitoring, and alerting by leveraging security information and event management (SIEM) and security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) capabilities, OT operational knowledge, and best practices to improve cybersecurity. , and incident response. This service is vendor agnostic and supports Honeywell and non-Honeywell assets on the ICS network.
Additionally, AMIR helps mitigate complex OT security incidents, threats and cyber-attacks through incident response support delivered by Honeywell security professionals. This information is provided by automated, instant custom alerts and periodic trend reports. Add 24/7 enterprise dashboards to improve visibility into identified incidents and ongoing active responses.
said Jeff Zindel, vice president and general manager of Honeywell OT Cybersecurity. “With the addition of the AMIR dashboard, customers will have enhanced visibility to know the status of identified incidents and the steps his OT cyber professionals at Honeywell are taking to respond to active threats. can be obtained.”
Formerly known as Application Whitelisting, CAC is a vendor-neutral cybersecurity solution for Honeywell and non-Honeywell control systems. This provides an additional layer of security that allows only known and trusted applications to run on ICS assets, preventing known malware in OT environments that often rely on more vulnerable legacy systems with difficult maintenance schedules. and customers’ ability to prevent zero-day attacks. His CAC impact on OT security is significant enough to be strongly recommended by cybersecurity frameworks such as the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
CAC uses the latest software releases by security specialist VMware Carbon Black with special rules and configurations created specifically for the OT environment, developed by Honeywell’s OT Cybersecurity Center of Excellence and Innovation. I’m here. The solution is deployed on-site by Honeywell’s experienced and certified OT cybersecurity engineers to ensure the customer’s unique needs are met.
