The Z-Wave Alliance, the standards development organisation dedicated to advancing the smart home and Z-Wave technology, has announced full support of the latest cybersecurity labelling programs for IoT and connected devices. 

In conjunction with the Z-Wave Alliance Summit & Unplug Fest 2024, the Alliance announces that the Z-Wave protocol security framework meets, and in some cases exceeds, the regulations and requirements set forth by the recently announced U.S. Cyber Trust Mark.

“Robust device security has long-stood as a cornerstone of the Z-Wave protocol,” says Avi Rosenthal, Chairman of the Board for the Z-Wave Alliance. “The Z-Wave Alliance commends all the hard work done by our industry cohorts at the Connectivity Standards Alliance in raising much-needed awareness surrounding the complexities of enhanced cybersecurity for connected devices.”

Certification is paramount when it comes to the future of connected IoT devices. All Z-Wave devices are subject to a rigorous certification process to ensure device security, compatibility and interoperability. 

As Cybersecurity labelling becomes more prevalent, the Alliance remains committed to its certification process while embracing evolving programs. 

The Z-Wave Alliance certification program does not compete with the CSA Product Security Verified Mark nor the U.S. Cyber Trust Mark but instead signals support and compliance for the developing regulations and specifications.
