ioXt Momentum Continues with Washington, D.C. Event

IoT security alliance making rapid progress to bring certified
products to consumers

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#5Glt;/agt;–IoXt, the preeminent IoT security alliance of leading consumer product
manufacturers, standards groups, compliance labs and government
organizations, continues to grow its size and influence. The Alliance
enjoyed a larger turnout at its latest meeting, held Thursday, April 11
at Union Station’s Presidential Suite in Washington, D.C., which
continued the public policy discussion and marked the kickoff of ioXt’s
compliance effort.

The agenda included a discussion of public policy for IoT security, such
as the current state of affairs, near-term policy changes, and how
industry and government can work together to set responsible policies.
Guest speakers were Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Communications
and Information David Redl and Senior Technology Policy Advisor Henry
Young, both of the U.S. Department of Commerce, and John Costello,
Director of Strategy, Policy and Plans for the Cybersecurity and
Infrastructure Security Agency at the Department of Homeland Security.
Alliance members also discussed the progress of ioXt’s compliance
program and the time table for announcing compliant products at CES 2020.

IoXt CTO Brad Ree says, “The companies of the ioXt Alliance commit to
taking the next step beyond recommendations and best practices. We’re
developing baseline security certification processes that will be
enforced by real-world market requirements to radically change global
marketplace demands for IoT security. Policy initiatives throughout the
world should align with and promote this game-changing approach.” He
continued, “The growth of the Alliance has been nothing short of
amazing. So many companies have joined the conversation, from device
manufacturers to Silicon Valley vendors, continuing the work with test
labs and government officials.”

With its mission of building testable requirements for consumer
electronics and taking industry-recognized security best practices to
the IoT market, ioXt knows getting there is a team effort. Says Ree,
“Our group is about where the rubber meets the road. We’ve come up with
baseline requirements and identified the market practicalities of
creating a real compliance program—one that’s scalable and will span
everything from smart light bulbs to connected cars—that’s led by some
of the largest tech companies and ecosystem operators. We couldn’t be
happier with the progress and want to thank everyone who attended our
Washington, D.C. meeting. We’d also like to invite other industry
stakeholders to hop on board at our future events as we work to bring
certified consumer products to the market early in 2020.”
