Honeywell, a global leader in industrial cybersecurity, on Wednesday launched a new software platform to simplify, strengthen and scale cybersecurity for asset-intensive businesses and critical infrastructure facing cyberthreats.

The Honeywell Forge Cybersecurity Platform is part of its Forge portfolio of products and services that increases cybersecurity across industrial environments.

According to the company, the new platform improves cybersecurity performance at a single site or across an enterprise by increasing visibility of vulnerabilities and threats, mitigating risks and improving cybersecurity management efficiency.

It safely moves data from one site to another and uses operations data to strengthen endpoint and network security and improves cybersecurity compliance. The platform also delivers a scalable software solution to better address cybersecurity pain points in OT and IIoT environments, it said in a press release.

Reduces security costs

The Honeywell Forge Cybersecurity Platform provides customers the tools they need to strengthen their cybersecurity operations and asset management, all through a single dashboard.

“Customers now have a better choice to strengthen industrial cybersecurity across their enterprise to enable IT-OT convergence and digital transformation, improving enterprise performance while reducing the cost of cybersecurity,” said Jeff Zindel, VP and GM of Honeywell Connected Enterprise, Cybersecurity.

“The Honeywell Forge Cybersecurity Platform provides multiple industry-proven capabilities in a single dashboard to simplify cybersecurity management and better protect people, processes and assets from evolving cyberthreats,” he added.

The Honeywell Forge Cybersecurity Platform is available in three versions to match with various cyber-requirements and budgets, including Enterprise Core, Enterprise Premium and Site offerings.

Earlier this year Honeywell launched Forge, a new category of software solutions that deliver enterprise performance management for operations technology to aerospace, building, industrial and worker segments.

Honeywell Forge aims to improve the way a variety of companies collect, analyze and act on data from their operations.
