“For the first time users can access 13 security applications on a miniature computer contained in a USB stick. Uniquely, the Yoggie Pico, 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,” the press release says.
Yoggie Pico protects computers by using the software combined with a piece of dedicated hardware, so it is not exposed to PC-related vulnerabilities as its software-only counterparts are.
The security applications contained on the Yoggie Pico are anti virus, anti spam, anti phishing, anti spyware, Intrusion Detection (IDS), Intrusion Prevention (IPS), web and mail proxies, firewall, web filtering, parental content control, Adaptive Security Policy, Multi-Layer Security Agent, and Layer-8 Security Engine, as well as VPN Client and VPN, which are available in Yoggie Pico PRO model only.
Yoggie Pico also increases laptop/desktop performance by offloading 13 security applications onto one piece of dedicated hardware.
The Yoggie Pico Personal is priced at Â£95/$179 with licensing from year two at Â£16/$30. The Pico Pro model costs Â£106/$199, with licensing from year 2 at Â£21/$40.
It will be available in the United States and Europe from September 2007.
The Company last year announced Yoggie Gatekeeper, a credit-card sized security computer.
