Lantronix adds zero-touch automation to its SaaS platform
Update allows remote installation of Lantronix’s IoT and OOB devices
Lantronix has announced new zero-touch automation capabilities for its cloud-based software as a service (SaaS) platform, ConsoleFlow.
ConsoleFlow by Lantronix helps businesses monitor, manage, and troubleshoot their internet of things (IoT) and REM assets remotely, boosting operational efficiency. Through a new ConsoleFlow feature called True Zero-Touch, organizations can streamline onboarding processes for Lantronix’s IoT and out-of-band (OOB) devices at scale — without user intervention.
“We at Lantronix continue in our vision of driving customer value by eliminating friction associated with device provisioning and deployment with our enhanced True Zero-Touch automation feature now available in our ConsoleFlow cloud-based management platform,” said Jonathan Shipman, VP of strategy at Lantronix.
Shipman continued, “True Zero-Touch automation facilitates quick and easy remote deployment by enabling device provisioning as soon as it ships. We are excited to be bringing this much anticipated feature to our SaaS platform, further increasing operational efficiency for our customers.”
Devices configured with True Zero-Touch automatically connect to ConsoleFlow when powered on. Businesses can also import newly purchased devices into their ConsoleFlow accounts. This eliminates the need to add individual devices later.
ConsoleFlow can also send updates to individual devices or multiple devices across a wide geographical area, and devices can automatically check for firmware updates and initiate setup file downloads.
As for security, Lantronix stated its cloud updates are encrypted and accessible without a VPN or security software.

Delivering centralized asset management, ConsoleFlow enables automated monitoring with real-time notifications and mobile access from any iOS or Android platform. Providing a secure path to Lantronix IoT devices and network assets, ConsoleFlow provides insight and control that empower users to focus on business logic and operational efficiency to drive successful outcomes,” added Lantronix.
