Honeywell Launches Advanced
Monitoring And Incident Response Service
June 11, 2021
Honeywell Advanced Monitoring and Incident Response (AMIR) service provides 24/7
operational technology (OT) cybersecurity detection and rapid response for
current and emerging cyber threats.
AMIR is a cost-effective, easy to deploy, scalable cybersecurity service that is
tailored to help IT and OT security teams that may struggle to keep up with the
continuing evolution of today's cyber-attacks that target industrial control
systems (ICS) and operational technology networks due to a lack of expertise or
AMIR is part of Honeywell Forge Managed Security Services (MSS), an end-to-end
security as a service solution that helps protect OT environments, control
systems and operations. In comparison, other third-party MSS providers and
in-house solutions may rely either on basic monitoring that doesn't employ a
proactive approach to securing critical OT assets and operations or on IT
security operation centers that lack OT domain knowledge and expertise in
different industrial protocols and assets.
"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, vice president and general manager, Honeywell
Connected Enterprise Cybersecurity. "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
continuously monitors OT environments by "hunting" for anomalous behavior,
including both known and emerging cybersecurity threats. It analyzes indicators
of compromise and alerts operators to potential problems before significant
damage can occur. Through the use of proprietary technology, AMIR collects,
correlates, prioritizes and analyzes security events and log data from multiple
sources, providing a comprehensive approach to better minimize cyber risk and
support cybersecurity compliance.
The AMIR offering is already being deployed at multiple sites worldwide to help
companies boost their cybersecurity maturity.
AMIR is integrated with the broader Honeywell Forge Cybersecurity portfolio
designed to help further strengthen cyber defenses for operating environments.
