Lantronix Launches ManageLinx 3.0 to Extend the Reach of Cloud Computing to Virtually Any Device

Innovative Solution Easily and Securely Enables Cloud Computing for Machines, Devices and Applications

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - September 28, 2010) -  Lantronix, Inc. (NASDAQ: LTRX), a leading provider of secure, remote management and device networking solutions, today announced the release of ManageLinx 3.0. The previous version of ManageLinx provided simple and secure remote access and management for virtually any piece of equipment behind firewalls. This new release extends the reach of cloud-based computing to machines, devices, and applications which may be located behind firewalls. ManageLinx 3.0 brings the cost advantages and scalability of cloud-based computing to machine-to-machine (M2M) and machine-to-application communications, providing customers with easy access to the latest applications. Rather than the ongoing investment in hardware and software needed to run applications in the enterprise, machines can now access the cloud to take advantage of robust computing technology. 

Available today, ManageLinx 3.0 offers significant improvements in the user experience, a tenfold increase in the total number of devices supported, and numerous enterprise-class improvements in features and functionality -- particularly in security and redundancy. ManageLinx 3.0 is the key enabling and building block technology for AccessMyDevice.com™, due for release on Sept. 30 2010. AccessMyDevice.com is an enterprise-grade, Internet-based remote access service enabling business and technology professionals to easily view, manage, control, and service virtually any device from a web browser.

Driven by customer feedback and leveraging Web 2.0 technology, ManageLinx 3.0 has been optimized for:

  • Extensibility: Supports the addition of VIP Access to microprocessor-based designs and 3rd party networked equipment.
  • Scalability: Throughput and scalability enhanced by the re-design of the infrastructure to support 10 times the number of devices.
  • Compatibility: Fully compatible with all existing ManageLinx equipment in the field.
  • Usability: Designed in collaboration with customers, ManageLinx delivers value immediately with a marked increase in functionality.

"ManageLinx 3.0 embodies our vision of safely and securely extending the benefits of cloud computing to machines and equipment behind firewalls, anywhere in the world," said Jerry Chase, president and CEO of Lantronix. "We are thrilled to add this major advancement in our ManageLinx platform to the growing list of newly-launched customer-driven Lantronix products and value-added solutions, designed to save customers time and money, improve their product development processes and help create new business models."
