Honeywell (NYSE: HON) Technology Solutions Inc. has been awarded a $34.4 million task order from the U.S. Navy Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic to provide cybersecurity and information assurance for the Commander, Navy Installations Command. Under the task order, Honeywell cybersecurity engineers will test and validate government systems, networks and devices for compliance with the Department of Defense and Department of Navy cybersecurity requirements.
“In an era defined by the strength of a nation’s cyberinfrastructure, Honeywell plays a critical role in helping the U.S. military and defense agencies ensure that information is globally accessible and secure, in a safe, cost-effective way,” said Carey Smith, president of Defense and Space at Honeywell Aerospace. “Honeywell’s cybersecurity expertise helps the Navy execute its strategy of information dominance by streamlining costly processes and sharing information and advanced capabilities faster to support warfighters at home and abroad.”
The Navy’s task order adds to Honeywell’s extensive body of security and compliance work with commercial, military and federal agencies, including divisions of the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center, the Defense Health Agency, and now the Commander, Navy Installations Command. Honeywell engineers test and validate compliance in challenging areas — such as the intersections of private and government networks — and generate tools that achieve system accreditation up to 50 percent faster than alternative methods.
