Lantronix, a leading provider of secure, remote management and device networking solutions, launched AccessMyDevice, a new enterprise-grade, Internet-based service enabling business and technology professionals to easily view, manage, control and service virtually any device from a web browser. Initially offered in conjunction with the Lantronix SpiderDuo, customers can use AccessMyDevice free for the first six months of service.
Currently available in the US only, international customers can begin taking advantage of this new service in December 2010. Lantronix is also announcing the AccessMyDevice partner program, enabling businesses the opportunity to offer the managed service to their customers under their own brand name.
“We are thrilled to launch AccessMyDevice, a leading edge managed service solution,” said Jerry Chase, CEO at Lantronix. “This service provides new recurring revenue streams for Lantronix and offers our customers and partners competitive advantages in terms of productivity and cost savings. AccessMyDevice will also serve as a robust communications platform for delivering software as a service (SaaS) solutions to the M2M market.”
AccessMyDevice offers all the benefits of a browser interface, plus the added security and functionality required by enterprise customers to remotely access devices, servers, equipment and data behind firewalls. Key features include:
• 24/7 secure, browser-based access to virtually any machine, device, server, PC, laptop, microprocessor, and more.
• Operating-system independent – The initial SpiderDuo offering is compatible with Linux, Windows and Mac machines, and any device with a VGA video port and either USB or PS/2 keyboard/mouse connector.
• BIOS-level access – Without the limitations of a software-based solution residing at the operating system layer, users can change BIOS settings and even conduct an entire system restore.
• Virtual media support – Perform remote upgrades, transfer files and redirect local drives remotely.
• Wake-on LAN – Remotely wake up a computer or device that is turned off, or vice versa, saving on energy costs and system usage.
