Secura Key Selects Lantronix Broadband Wireless RFID Networking Solutions for Its Next-Generation Secure Entry Access Products

9/23/09 - Lantronix, Inc. (NASDAQ: LTRX) announced that Secura Key, a leading manufacturer of access control and radio-frequency identification (RFID) solutions, has deployed Lantronix' Xport and WiPort embedded networking servers into its latest access control panel systems. The implementation of Lantronix wired and wireless connectivity solutions eliminates design complexity by providing self-contained embedded networking systems, which enables Secura Key engineers to focus on their core competency of designing security products.

Ideal for industrial-grade usage, Secura Key's new SK-ACP Advanced Control Panel provides entry and exit management capabilities to office buildings, parking lots and hospitals. By using Lantronix technology, the Secura Key SK-ACP gives customers the additional advantage of either wired or wireless network connectivity that is both affordable and secure.

Working with long-time Lantronix partner Symmetry Electronics Corp., Secura Key selected the XPort and the WiPort because they could easily be integrated into the new panel system and provided the advanced network security features Secura Key required.

"Given the sensitivity of the information stored on our control panel, which ranges from a full database of card holders to access schedules, we needed a simple and extremely secure solution that would enable us to add network connectivity with a minimum of additional engineering time," said Randy Watkins, VP of technology at Secura Key. "Lantronix and Symmetry Electronics made it easy to network connect our products, saving almost six months in development time. We were able to pass these benefits on to our customers, creating a win-win solution."

Lantronix' XPort web-enables any device with serial capability in one integrated, compact solution that includes all the required hardware and software components. The WiPort is the wireless networking equivalent, offering secure, end-to-end communications with Advanced Encryption Standards (AES). In addition, Lantronix SmartRoam technology provides seamless mobile connectivity and improved reliability for the wireless connection.

"Symmetry Electronics has worked with both Secura Key and Lantronix for many years and recognizes that both are leaders in their market segments," said Priscilla McConnell, VP of sales and marketing at Symmetry Electronics. "After learning about Secura Key's design needs, we recommended they use Lantronix, knowing it would be a natural fit and provide the security and fast time to market they needed."

"It is important that manufacturers are able to easily upgrade their products to include embedded network connectivity both securely and inexpensively," said Jerry Chase, CEO of Lantronix. "We're happy to be working with Secura Key to help simplify the lives of their engineers and help them bring greater benefits to their customers."

Lantronix' DeviceLinx solutions enable manufacturers to easily bring full Ethernet and/or wireless connectivity to virtually any electronic device.
