Taking a page from its own miniaturization playbook, Yoggie Security Systems(TM) (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.
The Firestick Pico(TM) 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.
The 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."
With Yoggie's Firestick Pico, road warriors can connect to any unsecured
hotspot with the comfort of being completely protected.
The Firestick Pico, at an MSRP of $119, is now available at leading
e-tailers including: Buy.com, Amazon.com, NewEgg.com and BestBUY.com, in
leading high-street retailer Fnac in France and will be introduced into
leading retailers in the U.S. and U.K. in early 2008. A full list of
e-tailers and retailers can be found at www.yoggie.com/retailers.
