NEW YORK -- Yoggie Security Systems today announced the launch of a groundbreaking new concept in personal security appliances for laptops and PCs: for the first time users can access 13 security applications on a miniature computer contained in a USB stick. Uniquely, the Yoggie Pico(tm), a full and robust Linux based computer, offloads all security applications onto the USB stick allowing Internet traffic to be screened before it executes on the laptop or PC and only once it has been cleansed is it allowed to enter the computer.
Following the successful introduction to market of Yoggie's first generation Gatekeeper(tm) series, which has gained wide market acceptance and multiple industry awards, Yoggie's new technology, the Yoggie Pico(tm), offers all laptop and PC users full corporate level Internet protection from all types of hacking, virus, malware, worms and other attacks - both current and future - while boosting computer performance by saving CPU, memory and disk space.
Every day, thousands of computer users have personal information stolen, identities cloned and work flow disrupted by hacking, viruses and other malicious attacks. These consumers are often protected by software-only security which can be time consuming to install, difficult to configure and manage and can result in different programs conflicting with each other. The Yoggie Pico(tm) provides access to a level of security previously only available to organizations like banks and government intelligence services.
