American industrial giant Honeywell this week announced a new cybersecurity monitoring and incident response service for industrial organizations.
The new service, named Advanced Monitoring and Incident Response (AMIR), is part of Honeywell’s Forge managed security services offering. It’s designed to help security teams detect and respond to attacks targeting industrial control systems (ICS) and operational technology (OT) networks.
Honeywell says AMIR is designed to continuously monitor OT environments for suspicious events. It collects and analyzes data from multiple sources, and alerts operators when a potential threat has been detected.
The company says AMIR has already been deployed by organizations worldwide
“Honeywell’s Advanced Monitoring and Incident Response solution provides a combination of advanced cybersecurity software, experts, and playbooks with remediation guidance in order to better detect, prevent, analyze, evaluate and coordinate the response to cybersecurity threats occurring within OT environments,” said Jeff Zindel, VP and GM at Honeywell Connected Enterprise Cybersecurity.
Zindel added, “Staffed by cybersecurity experts with specific OT experience, AMIR offers a tremendous resource to complement any existing IT/OT cybersecurity program and help ease the burden of cybersecurity challenges.”
