Honeywell to Introduce Advanced Incident Response and Monitoring Service for Improving OT Cybersecurity and Operation

Honeywell | June 14, 2021

A global leader in industrial cybersecurity, Honeywell (NASDAQ: HON), has announced the introduction of the Honeywell Advanced Monitoring and Incident Response (AMIR) service. It provides rapid response for emerging and current cyber threats and 24/7 operational technology (OT) cybersecurity detection.

AMIR is a easy to deploy, cost-effective, scalable cybersecurity service that is customized to help OT and IT security teams that is struggling to cope up with the emerging cyber threats that mainly target industrial operational technology networks and control systems (ICS), which happens due to budget constraints and lack of expertise.


AMIR comes as part of Honeywell Forge Managed Security Services (MSS). MSS is an an end-to-end security as a service solution that helps protect control systems, operations, and OT environments. By "hunting" for various anomalous behaviors, including both emerging and known cybersecurity threats, AMIR constantly screens OT environments. It examines indicators of compromise and signals operators to possible problems before major damage can happen. Using proprietary technology, AMIR correlates, collects, prioritizes, and analyzes security proceedings and log data from numerous sources, giving a complete approach to better lessen cyber risk and maintain cybersecurity compliance.

The offerings of the AMIR are already being installed at many sites globally to help companies increase their maturity of cybersecurity. AMIR is combined with the bigger Honeywell Forge Cybersecurity portfolio intended to help further support cyber defenses for functioning surroundings.
