Smart factories, among the first to move forward with the Internet of Things (IoT) thanks to factory automation, will soon reap the benefits of another successful embedded SBC Intel IoT ecosystem collaboration. Intel Security and Honeywell embedded system Process Solutions are teaming up to bolster protection of critical industrial infrastructure. Intel Security’s McAfee technologies will enhance Honeywell’s Industrial Cyber Security Solutions offering, providing Honeywell customers with new choices to protect their control systems from malware and misuse.
Industrial laptop“Protecting our critical infrastructure and the emerging industrial computer from cyber threats is a national priority, and the partnership of two market leaders will go a long way toward that goal,” said Raj Samani, vice president and chief technology officer, Intel Security. “Technologies in the Industrial IoT space have a tremendous amount of potential, and we can’t let security concerns undermine that; instead, security has to enable the growth of industrial IoT, and that’s what our collaboration with Honeywell will do.”
Honeywell is a leader in the industrial computer space, and its Industrial Cyber Security Solutions group has a dedicated embedded system global team of experts that provide products, services and technologies to protect industrial automation and control systems against cyber threats. The collaboration combines Intel Security’s latest advances in cyber security technology with Honeywell’s unique industrial process domain knowledge to provide tailored security solutions for the industrial environment.
