XPort Pro Selected for Next-Generation Security Product Line

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - May 5, 2010) -  Lantronix, Inc. (NASDAQ: LTRX), global provider of secure, network-enabling technologies, today announced BlueWave Security has selected Lantronix' XPort Pro for its next-generation security product line. BlueWave Security is a leader in Wi-Fi and Ethernet standards-based physical access control solutions. BlueWave Security selected XPort Pro, 'The World's Smallest Linux Server,' to future-proof its next-generation security product line with best in class networking capability, and to enable secure, remote access to equipment behind firewalls.

BlueWave Security supplies manufacturers, security dealers and system integrators in the physical security industry with IP-based physical access control solutions. BlueWave's products save time and money by leveraging the customer's existing Wi-Fi and Ethernet infrastructure, network management tools and IT security solutions. BlueWave partners with industry leading IT hardware and software manufacturers and physical security hardware manufacturers to provide state-of-the-art, value-added solutions.

"Our next generation security product line will extend our competitive advantage, lower cost of ownership and improve ease of use for our customers," said Mance Harmon, CEO and founder of BlueWave. "XPort Pro with VIP Access™ gives us future-proof networking capability and improved technical support and product management options by allowing us to securely access our security panels behind firewalls."

With the identical form factor as Lantronix' popular XPort, the XPort Pro's architecture, 32-bit processing power and ample memory allow resource-intensive applications to be deployed on a single platform. XPort Pro supports the Linux and Evolution operating systems. It enables powerful edge computing with customization and application hosting capability, providing developers with faster time-to-market and application development options. Lantronix' VIP Access enables highly secure remote access and management of equipment behind firewalls. This is important for BlueWave, as the company is able to provide its customers with both additional product and support options.

"BlueWave Security is a long time customer of Lantronix and we are very pleased to work with them on their next generation security product line," said Jerry Chase, CEO of Lantronix.
