Removable media and USB ports are critical to maintaining the availability and security of industrial processes, yet they introduce potential security risks. Current security solutions fail to adapt to operational realities, create excessive cost and burden, and do not help plant managers navigate changing digital-industrial plant networks. With years of experience managing security for its industrial customers, Honeywell Process Solutions is introducing a new addition to its Industrial Cyber Security Solutions portfolio – Honeywell Secure Media Exchange (SMX).

SMX reduces the cybersecurity risk and operational disruption for industrial organizations by protecting the use of removable media such as USBs and thumb drives. It also manages USB ports across any industrial facility against cyber risk and unauthorized usage.​ It is a gateway and software that verifies the security of removable media and logs its usage in the plant. ​With the SMX solution, plant owner/operators gain unprecedented control and visibility into the secure use of removable media, reducing cyber risk to process control networks globally.​


SMX reduces cybersecurity risk and operational disruption for industrials by monitoring, protecting, and logging use of removable media such as USBs and thumb drives and securely delivering vendor-agnostic threat research updates at site facilities. It works by - 

  • ​​Comparing files on a USB to an evergreen repository of industrial vulnerabilities and threat

  • Signing code, authorizes and monitors its use throughout the plant, all in a matter of minutes when a service engineer signs into to a facility

  • Monitoring the usage of the removable media throughout the site

  • Disabling any removable media from usage that has not gone through the SMX gateway

  • Disabling any USB port on any device without the SMX agent

SMX Is supported by Honeywell threat intelligence cloud and built for the industrial environment. It integrates with Industrial Cyber Security Risk Manager and is easy to deploy and use. SMX Is supported by Honeywell threat intelligence solution and built for both the industrial and non-industrial environments. It integrates with Industrial Cybersecurity Risk Manager and is easy to deploy and use.
