August 11, 2020 Tiera Oliver

The ioXt Alliance, the Global Standard for IoT Security, announced that major technology companies and manufacturers, including Google, T-Mobile, Silicon Labs and more, certified a wide range of devices through the ioXt Alliance Certification Program. Devices certified secure by the ioXt Alliance include cell phones, smart home, lighting controls, IoT Bluetooth, smart retail, portable medical, pet trackers, routers, and automotive technology.

According to the company, the ioXt Alliance is the only organization positioned to handle the increasing demand for IoT device certifications that meet security requirements across every product category. With major manufacturers and tech disruptors on their board, membership growing and four Authorized Labs as exclusive test providers, the ioXt Alliance continues to be an example of industry-led global security standards that can be tested at scale.

Focused on security, upgradability, and transparency, the ioXt Certification Program evaluates a device against each of the eight ioXt pledge principles with guidelines for quantifying the appropriate level of security needed for a specific device within a product category. Evaluations against the ioXt Pledge are done via manufacturer attestation or through the ioXt Alliance Authorized Labs which include Bureau Veritas - 7layers, DEKRA, and NCC Group. Each have history in compliance and security testing expertise at a global scale, are well-versed in the definition of the ioXt Alliance security standards and provide the third-party validation of device test results that ensure all devices are cybersafe. Devices then receive the ioXt SmartCert after meeting or exceeding the requirements in its designated product category.

Devices certified by the ioXt Alliance include:

  • Smart Home 
  • DSR Corporation Flyfish Gateway
  • T-Mobile Home Internet Gateway
  • T-Mobile SyncUP Pets
  • Smart Building
  • Acuity Brands nLight ECLYPSE™ Lighting Controller
