The ioXt Alliance, the global standard for IoT security, today announced that 34 new devices across Google, Motorola, Tuya, Lenovo and Distech Controls, as well as a variety of mobile applications from leading brands, have been certified through the ioXt Certification Program between July and August 2021. These new product certifications will further the global expansion of the ioXt Alliance to create a more secure IoT ecosystem.
“As IoT continues to grow in our highly-connected world, it’s critical that manufacturers make a serious commitment to security and privacy in order to build a more secure ecosystem globally,” said Brad Ree, CTO, ioXt Alliance. “We are proud to certify these products with our industry-backed standards that will help ensure the safety of connected devices while strengthening trust and confidence among all end-users.”
The 34 products that are now ioXt-certified include Google’s Nest products (camera battery, doorbell battery, thermostat, Hub Max, Hub 2nd Gen), Pixel 5a with 5G, Chromecast with Google TV, Motorola’s edge 20 series among others.
With a focus on security, scalability and transparency, the ioXt Alliance certifies against eight ioXt pledge principles, which include clear guidelines for quantifying the optimal level of security needed for a specific device within a product category. Once a device meets or exceeds the requirements after testing, it receives the ioXt SmartCert label.
