The ioXt Alliance, which is setting standards for Internet of Things security, said major technology companies and manufacturers including Google, T-Mobile, Silicon Labs and others have certified a wide range of devices through the alliance’s certification program.
Those devices include cell phones, smart home, lighting controls, IoT Bluetooth, smart retail, portable medical, pet trackers, routers and automotive technology.
The ioXt Alliance, founded by wireless infrastructure firm Mobilitie chairman Gary Jabara, is backed by large tech companies. It is intended to handle the rapidly 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 pave the way in defining industry-led global security standards that can be tested at scale,” the organization said.
The ioXt Alliance said early this year it’s bringing together wireless carriers, leading consumer product manufacturers, standards groups, compliance labs and government regulators as part of the project.
