Lantronix, Inc. (Nasdaq: LTRX), a leader in data centre management technologies, today launched SecureLinx Management Appliance (SLM), a centralised control solution that provides administrators with secure, remote and consolidated 'anytime, anywhere access' of nearly any device within the enterprise. SLM provides an easy to implement solution that seamlessly integrates out-of-band infrastructure (OOBI) management equipment including Lantronix' entire line of SecureLinx products, SecureLinx SLC Console Manager, SecureLinx SLK Remote KVMs (keyboard, video, mouse) and SecureLinx SLP Intelligent Power Manager. As a management gateway, SecureLinx SLM minimises administration efforts by providing automatic discovery capabilities, simplified views of attached equipment, centralised authentication, and quick monitoring capabilities including comprehensive device logging. The newest addition to the award-winning SecureLinx product line, SLM enables IT administrators the ability to automate management of large numbers of attached data centre equipment through a web browser with just a few mouse clicks.
"Large enterprises have heterogeneous servers and network infrastructure assets that are often geographically decentralised and time consuming to individually manage," said Marc Nussbaum CEO of Lantronix. "Together with other products in the SecureLinx family, the SLM simplifies the job of managing data centre equipment by providing secure, single point consolidation. Managers are now able to discover, provision, diagnose and service large numbers of remote and local equipment quicker, increasing uptime and reducing total cost of ownership. The Lantronix SecureLinx family delivers a pre-certified, fully integrated solution from the leader in data centre management."
Offering centralised security and authentication, SLM is a proxy to all user connections and provides a simplified security model, including a single sign-on capability which minimises the need for logging in and out when administrators are moving from one device to another. In addition, centralisation provides user-access audit logs to maintain log-in and port activity as well as notes on attached equipment.
For quick and easy setup, auto-discovery capabilities allow devices and port assignments to be recognised instantaneously eliminating the task for manual configuration. It provides access to attached devices along with the ability to organise views by device type, device location, or user specified groups. In addition, administrators can automate firmware deployment for Lantronix award-winning SLC console servers saving administrator's time.
