Yoggie Introduces the Firestick Pico Hardware Firewall

Yoggie Security Systems Introduces "Firestick Pico" Hardware Firewall
Ultra-Portable USB Device Protects PCs from Broadest Range of Attacks

LAS VEGAS, January 7, 2008 - Taking a page from its own miniaturization playbook, Yoggie Security SystemsTM (exhibiting at 2008 International CES in the Sands Convention Center, Innovation Pod #269) has introduced a unique, ultra-portable USB key-sized hardware-based firewall solution to protect PCs from malicious attacks.

Firestick PicoTM places a physical barrier between PCs and the Internet to ensure that threats never reach users' computers. Unlike software firewalls, the fire red colored Firestick Pico mini-computer is based on a dedicated hardware platform specifically designed to protect PCs from the most devastating menaces including denial of service, buffer overflow and the broadest range of malicious attacks. It blocks all Internet threats and attacks outside - before they reach PCs or laptops.

Firestick Pico is a complete Linux-based 300 MHz computer with a dual flash memory mechanism that constitutes an 'untouchable operating system' running an independent firewall application. In addition, each Firestick Pico comes with a complimentary Kaspersky security software suite.
Yoggie's Firestick Pico brings another choice to end users," said Shlomo Touboul, CEO and founder of Yoggie Security Systems. "While our Gatekeeper Pico offloads all security applications from a PC, the Firestick Pico offloads just the firewall functionality at a much lower cost. This allows different levels of security and a range of price points for discerning buyers who are joining the Yoggie revolution: moving security applications from the PC to dedicated, miniature computers to enhance security and improve PC performance."

Yoggie's Firestick Pico, road warriors can connect to any unsecured hotspot with the comfort of being completely protected.
