http://www.lantronix.com () —
Lantronix, Inc. (http://www.lantronix.com) (NASDAQ: LTRX), a leading provider of secure, remote management, device networking and data center management technologies, today announced the launch this September of AccessMyDevice.com, a new Internet-based service enabling business and technology professionals to easily view, manage, control and service virtually any device from a web browser.
Representing a major product milestone for the Company, this enterprise-grade service will allow remote access to PCs, laptops, mobile devices, servers and other equipment and electronics -- even those not originally designed with networking capability. Lantronix will offer AccessMyDevice.com in conjunction with a special promotion of its award winning (http://www.infoworld.com/d/networking/infoworld-review-ip-kvm-servers-havent-come-out-the-closet-942) keyboard video mouse (KVM) product SpiderDuo (http://www.lantronix.com/spiderduo) with VIP Access. The Company will also offer the service component free of charge for a user's first six months.
AccessMyDevice.com is a bundled solution comprising a customized, VIP Access-enabled SpiderDuo and a monthly subscription service. Key features include:
The AccessMyDevice.com service, along with SpiderDuo's remote access and management capabilities are currently utilized by customers in the healthcare, IT/data center and commercial markets. They are also an ideal solution for point-of-sale, kiosk, ATM, campus or other environments, where the device is locally used but maintained by distant IT staff. Remote management capabilities reduce the need for costly technician dispatches to maintain the equipment. An optional power control unit allows a user to remotely cycle equipment power.
"The launch of AccessMyDevice.com initially with VIP Access-enabled SpiderDuo is an exciting next step for us," said Jerry Chase, CEO at Lantronix. "All our new embedded and external products will also support VIP Access and will be accessible through AccessMyDevice.com. We believe the savings in time and money to our customers will be game changing. The service will also provide new revenue streams for the Company in terms of online product sales and a recurring revenue stream from the monthly service offering."
Unlike industry-leading software-based secure remote access solutions, AccessMyDevice.com boasts all the benefits of a browser interface, coupled with the added security and functionality to remotely access devices and data behind firewalls. Lantronix is launching the service as part of a special promotion, comprised of a bundled, customized SpiderDuo and six months free AccessMyDevice.com service, together for $349.00 USD. Following the six month free trial, the service component will be $19.95 per month. AccessMyDevice.com will launch nationwide in September 2010 and globally in 2011.
