COLOGNE, Germany--17 Nov--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

TUV Rheinland and Gooee, a US-based enterprise scale IoT platform and ecosystem developer, have agreed upon a far-reaching, three-year collaboration at LUXLIVE in London, one of the world's largest lighting industry events. Gooee plans to engage the global testing services provider to examine its portfolio of products and services for data protection and data security requirements. The tests will be based on the criteria prescribed by TUV Rheinland's certificates "Protected Privacy IoT Product" and "Protected Privacy IoT Service", which are part of TUV Rheinland's data protection and data security portfolio.

Comprehensive colaboration

Gooee is a specialist for innovative IoT lighting solutions and works with a number of international manufacturers. "Our customers have the utmost standards of security and data protection. Gooee is proud to be the first full-stack IoT developer to work with TUV Rheinland within the framework of its new IoT privacy certificates. The testing that will precede certification covers all material compliance aspects of the EU GDPR," said Simon Coombes, Chief Technology Officer at Gooee.

Unique end-to-end solution

Beginning in 2017, TUV Rheinland has been offering a unique end-to-end solution for data protection related to the Internet of Things (IoT) with its protected privacy certificates. It tests whether the requirements of the EU GDPR have been correctly implemented. Testing also reviews additional data security and protection requirements for resellers and retailers. This relates to the physical devices as well as any associated services that are part of the complete system.

"We are delighted to engage with Gooee with our certification program, which gives us the opportunity to make a valuable contribution to the IoT industry in terms of data protection and security," explained Udo Scalla, Head of the IoT Privacy Global Competence Center at TUV Rheinland. Testing and certifying IoT devices for data protection and privacy is a natural extension of TUV Rheinland's portfolio which will benefit manufacturers and consumers alike. "We can demonstrate that products are not only technically safe, but also that the user's data privacy is equally protected," said TUV Rheinland expert Mr. Scalla.
