AT&T, Ericsson team up on IoT cyber-security

Wednesday 26 September 2018 | 13:57 CET | News
AT&T and Ericsson joined forces to offer testing to help safeguard IoT devices from growing cyber-security threats. AT&T said it teamed with Ericsson to make it easier for businesses to get the baseline testing and validation they need to help make their devices more secure. It offers the service through the CTIA's recently announced 'Cybersecurity Certification Program.' AT&T said its goal is to identify device vulnerabilities that could threaten the data collected and sent across communication networks. This will help businesses put appropriate cyber-security defenses in place.
