CTIA Approves Intertek as Authorized Testing Lab for IoT Cybersecurity Certification

Intertek, a provider of quality-assurance solutions, has announced that two of its Connected World testing laboratories have been approved by CTIA as authorized testing labs (CATLs) for the CTIA Cybersecurity Certification Test Plan for IoT Devices. With this approval, Intertek's facilities in Lexington, Ky., and Rockville, Md., will be able to test and certify connected devices to CTIA's specifications for cybersecurity.

The CTIA IoT Cybersecurity Certification Program is designed to help improve security for connected devices, protecting consumers and data while creating a secure foundation for the IoT. To obtain cybersecurity certification, manufacturers and developers must submit a certification request to CTIA and indicate their chosen CATL, which will then test the product according to CTIA's test plan.

Intertek's experts in Lexington and Rockville will conduct technical assessments, then prepare test reports and the final submission to CTIA. The successful completion of all testing and reporting criteria will result in CTIA IoT Cybersecurity certification, the company explains.

"Intertek has been providing Total Quality Assurance solutions to the Connected World for years, and we are proud to help the industry bring in-demand products to consumers as the IoT continues to grow," said David Dennis, Intertek's VP, in a prepared statement. "We are so pleased to expand our partnership with CTIA and support their IoT Cybersecurity Certification Program as we help manufacturers and developers develop secure connected devices."
