AT&T and Ericsson are joining forces to offer comprehensive testing to help safeguard IoT devices from growing cybersecurity threats.

The program covers a wide range of devices - from body cameras to connected streetlights, to utility meters, industrial routers and medical devices. Ericsson’s labs provide the CTIA’s certification. AT&T makes the certification available to businesses through its Professional Services IoT program.

The goal is to identify device vulnerabilities that could threaten the data collected and sent across communication networks. This helps businesses put appropriate cybersecurity defenses in place.

Cameron Coursey, VP, IoT Solutions, AT&T
CTIA Cybersecurity certification will help our customers better protect themselves. It’s no secret security is a growing threat for IoT. Our work with Ericsson will help establish a common and readily achievable security program that protects devices, consumers and our networks.

Tomas Ageskog, VP and Head of Digital Services, Ericsson North America
Ericsson is the only network equipment provider accredited as a CTIA Authorized Test Lab for Cybersecurity Certification and we are pleased to be working with AT&T on this industry-leading initiative.
