FREMONT, CA: Lantronix, a networking company providing smart IoT and M2M solutions, announces a new software version 7.2.0.0 for its SLC 8000 advanced console manager to provide enhanced security in government, finance, healthcare and other commercial applications.

The software is compliant with the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2, a security standard for IT systems that is mandatory for U.S. and Canadian government and military applications that use cryptographic-based security. 

The Lantronix SLC 8000 is an advanced modular console manager that provides in-band and out-of-band management allowing IT personnel of any size enterprise to centrally manage, monitor and troubleshoot IT equipment locally or from anywhere over the network. This reduces downtime and increases response efficiency so that IT incidents are resolved quickly and with minimal or zero network disruption. The modular form factor of the SLC 8000 console manager allows easy scalability allowing users to reduce their total cost of ownership by simply adding or replacing modules as needed.

"In line with our strategy of providing critical management solutions with sophisticated levels of security, this addition of FIPS140-2 compliant firmware expands market opportunities for our premier SLC 8000 Advanced Console Manager. Today, the average cost of a single data center outage is nearly one million dollars, creating a nightmare situation for IT teams tasked with maintaining 24/7 reliability. At Lantronix, we are dedicated to providing secure management products that reduce data center downtime and provide scalable, secure and cost-effective solutions for ever-demanding and changing IT environments of all sizes," said Kurt Busch, president and CEO, Lantronix.
