Honeywell OneWireless Firewall Will Use Tofino Technology

Sept. 8, 2009

Byres Security Inc. and MTL Instruments, a division of Cooper Crouse-Hinds, announced that Honeywell has selected Tofino technology for its OneWireless Firewall. The Honeywell OneWireless Firewall is designed to sit between Honeywell’s Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) control system and the OneWireless network, providing an additional layer of protection against unwanted and harmful network traffic, thereby promoting control system integrity, according to the companies.

The OneWireless Firewall is compliant with Experion R311 and is the second network security product from Honeywell based on Tofino technology (the first being the Experion Modbus TCP Firewall).

“We are delighted that Honeywell is expanding its relationship with us, showing that Tofino technology is effective for Honeywell customers, and that there are multiple applications for Tofino within the Honeywell product,” says Joann Byres, CEO of Byres Security Inc.
