Enterprises need to be cognizant about the security measures of the connected devices within their network; allowing one of those connected devices to be the weakest link could permit unwanted access to the network. Whether it is a medical device, mobile app, home security system, parking meter, smoke detector or any other network enabled device, they all transmit data and should be tested and certified to verify they meet essential security measures to protect that data and the networks to which they connect.
Canary Connect, Inc. is a video-driven home security company that helps consumers safeguard their home by sending alerts to an app on a smartphone when activity is detected. ICSA Labs tested the device and certified that it met appropriate and recommended security requirements. Chris Rill, a co-founder and CTO of Canary, speaks to the importance of product privacy and security as well as value of IoT Device Security Certification.
