What is the UL IoT Security Rating?
The UL IoT Security Rating is a comprehensive framework for evaluating the security posture of smart products and IoT devices. The framework was developed by UL (Underwriters Laboratories), a global safety science company that offers certification services. It is a tiered rating system that aims to establish a standard security baseline within the consumer IoT sector. This provides consumers, manufacturers, and retailers with a clear and comprehensible measure of the security features embedded in IoT products, and their ability to mitigate common IoT threats and vulnerabilities.
The rating system is divided into different levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond. Each level represents a progressively more robust set of security features. These levels are determined based on various criteria, such as data encryption, software integrity, and user data protection. A service or product that receives the Diamond level rating has met the most rigorous and demanding security standards and offers comprehensive security protection to its customers.
Sternum is an embedded platform built for connected devices. By augmenting every device with runtime security and granular observability, Sternum provides world’s leading device manufacturers with significant business insights, continuous in-field product and fleet monitoring, and built-in security, enabling them to improve operational efficiency and achieve business excellence.
