Honeywell SMX

Reduce cybersecurity risk and limit operational disruptions by monitoring, better protecting, and logging use of removable media throughout industrial facilities.


Protect Assets from Weaponized USB Attacks

A policy may state access to an asset needs to be blocked, however, without proper cybersecurity controls, a workaround could be very simple. Honeywell SMX (Secure Media Exchange), a first of its kind threat detection tool, helps provide enforceable enterprise USB and removable media protection.

How Honeywell SMX Works

Honeywell SMX provides in-depth protection against USB-based malware, while addressing your USB device regulatory and compliance challenges.
