Irvine, Calif. – May 9, 2013 – Lantronix, Inc. (Nasdaq: LTRX), a leading global provider of smart M2M (machine-to-machine) connectivity solutions, today announced the launch of the next-generation Lantronix SLB (Secure Lantronix Branch office manager)™, a significant upgrade to the company’s existing integrated secure console server with remote power management, which enables IT administrators to securely manage remote servers and IT infrastructure equipment quickly and easily over the internet.
