Vulnerability Assessments and Penetration Testing for IoT
Regardless of the industry, connected products, mobile and web applications, and cloud services all have the potential of placing sensitive information about users and the organizations at risk. With over 30 years of experience in cyber security, Intertek can develop a tailored approach to test your IoT ecosystem. Our vulnerability assessment activities are designed to find vulnerabilities in a system before a security breach occurs. This includes identifying weaknesses in the physical environment, organization, procedures, personnel, administration, hardware, software, and communications equipment that may be exploited by hackers.
Testing to Standards
Intertek can test your products to a wide range of standards; such as ANSI/UL 2900, IEC 62443, CTIA, PCI, FIPS 140, or Common Criteria, you can rest assured that your products will be covered from all angles.
ANSI/UL 2900 is a series of standards providing measurable criteria for the testing of network-connected devices to mitigate potential security vulnerabilities and exploits. ANSI/UL2900 can be a significant undertaking for an organization, therefore we’ve built services that assists you no matter where you are on your process to meet security objectives. Services include gap assessments, document preparation, security design review, product assessment, and full certification.
The IEC 62443 series of standards were developed by security experts and are aimed at industrial automation controls. The series lays out a framework for securing processes and procedures, outlining security requirements for components and systems, and identifying secure software development practices. Intertek can help your organization certify to these cyber security standards.
CTIA IoT Cyber Security Certification ProgramThe CTIA IoT Cyber Security Certification Program establishes an industry baseline for device security on wireless networks. As a CTIA Authorize Test Laboratory (CATL), Intertek will help customers evaluate IoT devices against the cyber security requirements set forth by the U.S. wireless communications industry.
