SALTO Systems has become one of the first electronic access control manufacturers to achieve Secured by Design’s new "Secure Connected Device" accreditation for IoT products.
With the Government soon to introduce new legislation in the shape of the Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure (PSTI) Bill, coupled with a growing demand from Industry and current members seeking to gain accreditation for IoT products, Secured by Design has launched a new 'Secure Connected Device' accreditation scheme.
The new scheme enables companies providing IoT connected products and services to demonstrate that their products have achieved the appropriate and relevant IoT standards and certifications from an Secured by Design recognised certification body.
Working closely with certification bodies who assess IoT products and services against all 13 provisions of the ETSI EN 303 645 standard, Secured by Design’s IoT device assessment, identifies the level of risk associated with an IoT device and its ecosystem, providing recommendations on the appropriate certification routes.
Once third party testing and independent certification for a product has been achieved, the product will be awarded Secured by Design’s "Secure Connected Device" accreditation, a unique and recognisable accreditation that will highlight products as having achieved the relevant IoT standards and certifications.
The requirements to obtain the Secure Connected Device accreditation are:
- IoT products and services need to have achieved the appropriate and relevant IoT standards and certifications conducted by an Secured by Design recognised certification body.
- The certificate needs to be assessed against all 13 provisions of the ETSI EN 3030 645, which goes beyond the three provisions legislated by the UK Government.
- The assessment is required to have been done hands on by the certifying bodies – Secured by Design do not accept self assessed certificates.
- The IoT product or service needs to be assessed on an annual basis (every 12 months).
SALTO Systems Ltd MD Ramesh Gurdev says “Achieving this new "Secure Connected Device" accreditation with Secured by Design demonstrates to current and potential customers that SALTO connected products continue to meet the highest security standards.”
