About Yoggie Security Systems
Yoggie Security Systems was established in 2005 by Shlomo Touboul,
founder and former CEO of Finjan Software, and the inventor of Behavior Based
Blocking Technology. As a result of countless meetings with IT managers around
the world, Mr. Touboul realized they all share a common concern - while security
technology has matured to provide robust security, traveling laptops create
security holes that jeopardize the security of the entire corporate network. Mr.
Touboul decided to dare the impossible, to try to miniaturize all the security
appliances found in the corporate server room into a credit-card size device
that can be easily carried and connected to the laptop.
The attempt was successful. After

MHz). But unlike a regular PC, it was designed as security hardware, with a
hardened operating system and physical separation between the unsafe zone
(Internet) and the safe zone (connected to the laptop). Yoggie solved the
vulnerabilities of traveling laptops by effectively extending robust corporate
security to the mobile and remote workforce. In addition to serving the
corporate world, Yoggie security mini-computers are suitable for SMBs and home
