It’ll be easier for the Air Force to take its security business to Honeywell as the result of a certification that manufacturer received and announced yesterday. Honeywell’s Vindicator security technology,  which is used for critical-infrastructure protection, now has an ATO (Authority to Operate) certificate for use on U.S. Air Force data networks, Honeywell announced.
This means the Vindicator technologies can “be safely installed on any network to protect mission-critical resources without exposing the organization to security risks” and it  “makes it easier for USAF major commands and local bases to provision the Vindicator systems that best fit their needs.”
The specific product that were approved are: the Vindicator Command & Control platform, V5 Intrusion Detection System , V5 Access Control System, Security Archive Workstation, Vindicator Badge Manager 2  and the UHS-Net family of gateways and transponders.
More from the release: “These technologies enable operators to use a single workstation to manage security event information from perimeter intrusion, video detection, access control and fire systems. Vindicator solutions can utilize an existing or discrete facility network over any media transport: wire, RF, modem, fiber, etc., both encrypted and redundantly. This critical level of security is often required by government and military installations, industrial facilities and many correctional institutions.”
