Digi Simplifies Wireless Security in Embedded Products with New NET+OS 7.4


MINNETONKA, Minn., Mar. 6 /PRNewswire-Asia/ --


Latest version of software platform features Wi-Fi Protected Setup(TM)


    Digi International (Nasdaq: DGII) today introduced NET+OS 7.4, the latest

version of its royalty free software platform for network enabled embedded system

development.  NET+OS 7.4 features Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) to make security in

embedded products simple to configure and easy to deploy.  WPS was created by the

Wi-Fi Alliance to enable easy and secure establishment of wireless networks.  WPS

automatically configures the WPA and WPA2 parameters for wireless networks. 

Embedded developers can now easily provide WPS configuration in their wireless

embedded products using any Digi embedded wireless module. 



       

    "NET+OS with WPS makes wireless products much easier to use," said Larry

Kraft, senior vice president of global sales and marketing, Digi International. 

"WPS improves wireless security and reduces technical support.  There is

increased demand for WPS in embedded wireless devices.  Digi now makes it easier

for customers to pursue WPS certification for their wireless products using Digi

embedded modules."


    WPS is well suited for environments where strong wireless security and data

integrity is required such as in medical devices to protect patient information

or to protect the transfer of financial data in retail and gaming applications. 

NET+OS 7.4 is an ideal solution for developing secure wireless embedded products

with Digi embedded modules.  It provides a turnkey solution specifically designed

and optimized for Digi's own NET+ARM processors and embedded modules.  In

addition to WPS, NET+OS 7.4 includes a royalty-free distribution of ThreadX Real-

Time Operating System (RTOS) from Express Logic, Digi ESP, a complete Eclipse-

based integrated development environment, and a rich variety of networking and

security services.


    NET+OS 7.4 JumpStart Kits with WPS are available now for $499 or less and as

a free upgrade to customers using earlier versions of NET+OS 7.  For more
