The center develops new cybersecurity technologies, provides hands-on training and monitors customer sites for threats
Honeywell has opened its first industrial cybersecurity center of excellence (CoE) in Asia.
The center was developed with the support of the Singapore Economic Development Board (EBD) and designed to help defend the region’s industrial manufacturers against evolving cyber security threats.
“The only way manufacturers can reap the benefits of digital transformation such as increased uptime and reduced maintenance is if their industrial environments are cyber secure,” said Jeff Zindel, VP and GM, Honeywell Industrial Cyber Security.
“Today marks another important step forward in Honeywell’s leadership in industrial cyber security, further strengthening our ability to secure and protect assets, operations and people. The center’s state-of-the-art capabilities and managed security services improve cybersecurity protection, detection, management and response for customers, which are key enablers for successful digital transformation in the industrial sector.”
The cybersecurity center will be used to conduct proprietary research, develop new security technologies, provide hands-on training and certifications, and test and validate actual solutions deployed at customer sites. In addition to serving as a research and development lab, it also will deliver managed security services to help customers reduce the risk of security breaches and proactively improve their security posture.
These services include continuous security and performance monitoring and alerting, threat detection and risk management, security device management, and incident response with 24-hour expert support 365 days a year.
