Qorvo participates in launch of US Cybersecurity Labeling Program for Consumer Technology
Qorvo Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA (which provides core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and defense applications) has participated in the launch of the US Cybersecurity Labeling Program for Consumer Technology. The event in Washington DC included senior representatives from IoT device makers, industry associations, standards bodies and US government agencies in support of the May 2021 Executive Order 14028 on improving the nation’s cybersecurity.
“We are actively involved with industry alliances that define global standards and prioritize IoT device security, enabling us to design our products with full compliance to the latest and most rigorous requirements,” said Eric Creviston, senior VP & president of Qorvo’s Connectivity and Sensors Group, who participated in an executive roundtable at the event. “Qorvo solutions are embedded across a broad spectrum of IoT applications, and we implement advanced security in these areas to protect the integrity of the network and the end devices.”
The US Cybersecurity Labeling Program for Consumer Technology is intended to harmonize security standards across the entire IoT ecosystem. The program incentivizes manufacturers and retailers to incorporate advanced cybersecurity functionality into their products, reducing barriers to consumer adoption. Major companies and organizations participating in the launch included Amazon, Google, LG Electronics USA, Samsung, Sony, the Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA) and the US Chamber of Commerce.
Qorvo works closely with the CSA to define the latest standards for Matter, Bluetooth Low Energy, Zigbee and Thread. As a member of the FiRa Consortium and Car Connectivity Consortium, Qorvo applies ultra-wideband (UWB) location capabilities for secure transactions and secure automotive digital key applications, respectively. Qorvo’s connectivity solutions are compliant with the security requirements of automotive digital key/connected car, building/home access, secure transactions and other IoT applications.
