CFM Selects Lantronix' EDS2100 to Network-Enable Cash Automation Systems

CFM Customers Retain Secure, Reliable Access to Cash Automation Systems in the Event of Network Outages

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 22, 2011) - Lantronix (NASDAQ: LTRX), a leading global provider of smart connectivity solutions that enable access to any device, anywhere, anytime, today announced that Cash Flow Management, Inc. has implemented Lantronix' EDS2100 external device networking technology to create IP-to-serial connections that are necessary to bring its zero-footprint flagship cash automation product on to a network. As a result of deploying the EDS2100, CFM was able to retain the zero-footprint form factor of its products while providing the redundancy required for business continuity in the event of a network outage.

CFM is a professional software provider, dedicated to servicing financial institutions, core software providers and cash automation hardware manufacturers, with its primary software product, S4. S4 is an enterprise-level, cash automation solution with zero footprint at the branch level. Being server-based, a network outage at the CFM server location can interrupt service at the branch, causing unnecessary downtime and reduced business performance. To alleviate network downtime, CFM sought a solution to bring cash automation on to a network, which wouldn't compromise S4's zero-footprint form factor.

CFM implemented Lantronix' EDS2100, a hybrid Ethernet terminal/multiport device server that allows remote access and management of virtually any IT/networking equipment or edge device, providing bullet-proof security with built in AES, SSH and SSL capabilities. By implementing the EDS2100 into CFM's Networking Outage Redundancy Module (NORM) design, CFM was able to create the IP-to-serial connection required to bring S4 functionality on to the network.

"Having Lantronix' EDS2100 run on a Linux OS allowed us to cut our development time in half. The sooner we were able to have our system online, the quicker we were able to reassure our customers that no downtime would occur with a network outage," said Nathan Moore, Product Director, CFM. "We are now able to better provide secure, reliable cash automation redundancy that our customers need, and have seen a considerable increase in customers seeking our services."

NORM enables all the functionality of the S4 software to be available on the enterprise server from any branch within the WAN. Once credentials are authenticated, NORM facilitates access to all cash automation functionality in a highly secure environment.

"Lantronix is delighted to assist CFM in providing a 'best of both worlds' situation in allowing its customers to have a zero-footprint cash automation system and redundancy for business continuity," said Paul Pishal, Vice President of Product Management for Lantronix. "Lantronix will continue to develop products to provide remote access and device connectivity to our valued customers. We help our customers concentrate on their core business capabilities, while simplifying networking and connectivity solutions."
