ISCA launches IoT security certification program

Certified devices and sensors carry the ICSA Labs’ mark of approval that indicates they underwent demanding testing and any weakness or vulnerability found was mitigated and confirmed through further testing by ICSA Labs. In addition, certified devices are tested over their lifecycle at regularly established intervals to help make the devices more secure.
