Honeywell acquires Nextnine cyber security software provider

Morris Plains, NJ-based Honeywell is to buy Nextnine, an Israel-based, privately- held provider of security management solutions and technologies for industrial cyber security.

Nextnine’s flagship technology, ICS Shield, protects industrial sites from cyber security attacks and enables remote monitoring of assets. It complements Honeywell’s own cyber security portfolio with a solution used at over 6,200 sites globally. Previously, ICS Shield had to be deployed separately for each control system vendor, resulting in multiple and separate installations at a single customer site. With this acquisition, customers will be able to deploy and operate a single system, thereby simplifying and better securing their entire site with Honeywell’s ability to provide multi-vendor solutions.

Nextnine’s security solutions also will be a key enabler of Honeywell Connected Plant which combines Honeywell’s industrial expertise, software and digital technologies.
