NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 15, 2020--

The ioXt Alliance, the Global Standard for IoT Security, today announced its upcoming Securing Android Virtual Summit. Taking place September 30, 2020 from 8:00-10:30 a.m. PDT, the event will center on this prevalent technology and take a close look at how Android and ioXt are working together to secure everything from cellphones to TVs and connected cars.

“As the Android ecosystem continues to grow exponentially and its connected technology permeates both the enterprise and consumer lives, effective security measures have become paramount to ensure that end users are protected and safe,” said Brad Ree, CTO of the ioXt Alliance. “By bringing together major OEMs such as Google with wireless carriers such as T-Mobile, as well as other leaders within their respective industries, the ioXt Alliance has forged a strong foundation to support these efforts.
