Yoggie Security Systems' Personal Security Computer Achieves Ultimate Industry Recognition with Award from World-leading Consumer Electronics Show
The Gatekeeper Pico(TM) (formerly Yoggie Pico(TM)), a USB key-sized
personal security computer with 12 security applications, has been awarded
"Best of Innovations 2008 - Computer Accessories" by the 2008 Consumer
Electronics Show (CES).
The award was presented to Yoggie Security Systems(TM) (exhibiting at
Sands Convention Center, Innovation Pod #269) for its revolutionary
Internet security device. The Gatekeeper Pico mini-computer connects to
any PC or laptop -- blocking Internet threats outside the host computer
and boosting PC and laptop performance by off-loading it from installed
For Yoggie Security Systems, this award is the latest in a string of
prestigious industry awards and accolades that have followed the launch of
its initial range of miniature personal security computers in 2007. The
list includes Business Week/IDSA Silver Idea Award, RSA Innovation Award,
PC Magazine 2007 Technical Excellence Award; Network World 'Top Ten
Security Companies to Watch' and a host of product recommendations from
leading computing, consumer and business publications.
The Gatekeeper Pico appears to be a sleek, silver USB-key, but is in fact
a full-blown computer with its own processor, memory and unique operating
system. It combines best-of-breed security software with proprietary
patent-pending developments to provide the most comprehensive all-in-one
security technology available to consumers today.
The Gatekeeper Pico delivers plug and forget functionality. Users do not
have to worry about updates as it automatically checks for them each time
it connects to the Internet, and manages the entire process. The device
does not require complex installation, configuration or ongoing management
(although advanced users can alter the configuration should they wish to).
With the Gatekeeper Pico providing Pentagon-level security for their home
PC or laptop, consumers no longer need to run software-based security
suites. This means increased performance for their computer. In addition,
the Gatekeeper Pico has parental controls built in and can be configured
so that, if it is disconnected (by a child wanting access to off-limits
websites) Internet access will be denied.
"We are honored to be recognized in this manner by the world's most
important consumer technology show. It underscores the fact that we have
developed the most innovative approach to online security available
today," said Shlomo Touboul, founder and CEO of Yoggie Security Systems.
The Gatekeeper Pico, with a suggested retail price of US$179, 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
