ioXt Alliance Adds Four Authorized Labs to Certification Program

By

In a recent release, the ioXt Alliance, IoT security standards organization, announced the addition of four Authorized Labs to the ioXt Certification Program: 7layers, DEKRA, DTG and NCC Group. Authorized Labs are the exclusive test providers for the ioXt Alliance and perform all testing required for devices to be certified by the Alliance and to bear the ioXt Certification Mark.

“DEKRA is excited to become an ioXt Authorized Lab,” said Fernando E. Hardasmal, EVP, Service Division Product Testing, DEKRA. “With the rapid evolution and interconnectivity of IoT devices, security is critical. We are pleased to join ioXt in securing the IoT ecosystem.”

The mission of the ioXt Alliance is to build manufacturer and consumer confidence in the security of IoT products. Authorized Labs are invaluable in helping support this mission, the alliance says, because they provide third-party validation of device test results.

“We look forward to applying NCC Group’s deep expertise and integrity to ioXt standards and help give the IoT ecosystem the confidence and security it needs for broadscale adoption,” said Rob Wood, Technical VP, NCC Group. “The IoT discipline has the potential to radically transform every field, from household gadgets to the healthcare and energy industries, but only when there’s security to match. That must be our goal moving forward.”

The ioXt Alliance is an industry-led effort composed of eight principles that bring security, upgradability and transparency to the market and directly into the hands of consumers. The ioXt Certification Program tests a product’s compliance against the ioXt security standard.

“Authorized Labs and the ioXt Alliance are a great partnership. With their support, manufacturers and consumers can be assured that devices bearing the ioXt Certification Mark are cybersafe,” said Brad Ree, CTO, ioXt Alliance.
