MORRIS PLAINS, US: Honeywell (HON) has completed the acquisition of Nextnine Ltd, a privately held, leading provider of industrial cyber security solutions.

  • Secure connected and remote access capabilities with improved control and protection of customer data that can be extended to additional assets and used for secure file transfer
  • Full continued support and services for current Nextnine customers and partners and enhanced technology developments that will benefit all end-users
