The ISO 20243 standard is a set of requirements and recommendations to help assure against maliciously tainted and counterfeit products throughout commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) information and communication technology (ICT) product lifecycles.
“Authenticity and security of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software and hardware is a concern for our customers that continues to grow, and n+1 technologies is proud to have taken the necessary steps to ease those concerns through supply chain security certification,” said Johnny Lee, president, n+1 technologies, “We went through the certification process to let our clients know that we take the security of our supply chain very seriously. While we already have an extremely rigorous security system in place, this provides third-party confirmation.”
The O-TTPS Certification Program benefits many stakeholders throughout the supply chain, including n+1 technologies’ clients, who can consider the O-TTPS Certification and status as an Open Trusted Technology Provider to be an additional safeguard in their own internal comprehensive technology procurement and risk management strategy.
The O-TTPS (ISO/IEC 20243) certification program is one of the first programs aimed at assuring both the integrity of information technology products and supply chain security. The conformance requirements are tailored specifically to technology providers to help reduce the risk of malware-enabled or malware-capable and counterfeit components from making their way into customers’ operating environments.
