Yoggie Security Systems Introduces "Firestick Pico" Hardware Firewall
Ultra-Portable USB Device Protects PCs from Broadest Range of
LAS VEGAS, January 7, 2008 - Taking a page from its own
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
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.
