The ioXt Alliance, the global standard for IoT security, said last week Tuya Smart has certified its Wi-Fi module through the ioXt Certification Program. The product certification marks the beginning of Tuya’s relationship with ioXt and further expansion for the ioXt Alliance through Tuya’s global all-in-one AIoT platform.
The Alliance is backed by the biggest names in technology, including Google, Amazon, T-Mobile, Comcast and more. It is a group of more than 200 leading OEMs, wireless carriers, standards groups, compliance labs, and government organisations dedicated to harmonising best security practices and establishing testable standards that give manufacturers, retailers and consumers product confidence in a highly connected world.
Products that are certified through the ioXt Certification Program are evaluated against eight different ioXt pledge principles that outline required levels of security. Once devices pass lab or self-attestation testing, they are deemed safe to receive the ioXt SmartCert label.
With major manufacturers and tech disruptors on their board, membership growing, and four authorised 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.
“We’re excited to see Tuya Smart certify their WBR3N Wi-Fi+BT module with the ioXt Alliance. They have a great global developer community and amazing number of global manufacturers who have used the Tuya Platform to bring the power of IoT to a wide array of consumer products. Tuya demonstrates that secure IoT can be accomplished at the scale needed for consumer products,” said Brad Ree, ioXt Alliance CTO.
He noted that any company entering or already in the smart device segments now has tremendous pressure by government entities and consumers alike to make their products as secure as possible.
“The stakes are incredibly high, and that’s why participation from companies like Tuya Smart that are firmly rooted in IoT and are proponents of security standards is so important for us,” said Ree. “We’re excited to have Tuya on board, and are confident that their ongoing participation will continue to advance IoT device security.”
A newly-minted member of the Alliance, Tuya is the global provider all-in-one AIoT platform. The company provides manufacturers, brands, OEMs, and retail chains cloud, connectivity, and mobile application services that transform products into smart devices and systems.
Its newly certified WBR3N Wi-Fi+BT module is an RTOS platform that integrates many function libraries. It is ideal for various applications, such as smart appliances, smart electrical and lighting, security cameras, and healthcare products.
“We aim to set down collaborative roots throughout the world, partnering with like-minded, forward-thinking companies seeking to maximize product security and consumer protection,” said Fritz Werder, general manager for Tuya North America. “Joining with ioXt aligns with our commitment to help securely power IoT products and fuel IoT systems that are squarely focused on making a safe and secure Internet of Things, specifically with regards to global smart home markets.”
Tuya Smart has smart-enabled more than 200,000 products worldwide across eight major smart categories—including security, lighting, and healthcare products—to develop smart products for the home and commercial markets quickly, safely, easily, and affordably. Tuya is internationally operated with headquarters in the U.S., Germany, India, Japan, Colombia, and China. Its global partner reach now includes more than 180,000 companies, all leaders in their respective industries and regions.
