The zero footprint product is small enough to be cable-supported from the back of a Windows or Linux/Unix server, freeing a rack-mount slot for other uses. Its low-power design allows the Spider to be server-powered from two USB connections or one USB connection plus the PS/2 keyboard and mouse ports.
The Spider compresses video, keyboard and mouse signals, sending them over the network or Internet to a remote PC or handheld device running standard Web browsers. The user has secure, real-time control of the remote server including full administrative privileges, operating system and system BIOS access, as if he or she were sitting directly in front of the server.
Security features include RADIUS, LDAP and Active Directory remote authentication support and encryption of keyboard, video and mouse data. Spider also includes a serial interface and second Ethernet port, allowing a hardware connection to all commonly used OOB (out-of-band) management interfaces. Spider integrates into Lantronix' serial console management (SecureLinx SLC), remote power management (SecureLinx SLP), and consolidated management access (SecureLinx SLM) systems.
SecureLinx Spider will be available next month for $495 MSRP.
