Honeywell has released a series of new tools aimed at improving operational efficiency and sustainability, including an operational technology (OT) cybersecurity tool and a smart building management system.

The new cybersecurity tool, Cyber Insights, collects information from multiple OT data sources to identify vulnerabilities and threats. 

“Organizations should leverage technology to address worker shortages, while at the same time gaining clear visibility into their OT facilities’ cybersecurity posture,” said Michael Ruiz, Honeywell OT cybersecurity innovation’s vice president.

The announcement comes as part of Honeywell’s latest product showcase, Honeywell Connect.

Also unveiled as part of the showcase was Honeywell Forge for Buildings, a new smart building management system designed to help building owners with sustainability, efficiency and safety targets. 

"Building operations are evolving at a rapid pace as many customers work to digitalize their facilities,”  said Kevin Dehoff, Honeywell Connected Enterprise’s president. “We are integrating our purpose-built products that support multiple assets in a building with the SaaS capabilities of Honeywell Forge to create a singular approach to building operations."

As part of the new building management system, Honeywell is also expanding its carbon and energy management applications, collecting data and creating insights on buildings’ emissions to optimize energy consumption. 

“Our offering helps turn ordinary buildings into smart buildings,” said Jason Urso, Honeywell’s CTO at a pre-briefing. “Using data associated with multiple systems within the site, operators can identify ways to run it more efficiently, safely and with higher levels of resilience.”

Honeywell also announced it will be leveraging digital twin technology to help improve training capabilities. 

“Digital tools help plants deliver meaningful tools and performance,” said Urso. “Often people’s competency is improved by observing others, so by providing a simulation environment operators can train on (like a flight simulation for a pilot), we’re augmenting well-known and well-understood capabilities with simplification so we can deliver the training remotely and from a cloud environment.”
