Yoggie targets online gamers and parents with Yoggie Gatekeeper Internet security products

November 2007 by Marc Jacob

The Yoggie Gatekeeper SOHO™ and the Yoggie Gatekeeper Pro™ are part of Yoggie Security Systems™ stable of Personal Security Servers: miniature computers, the size of a credit card, with their own processors and memory, that provide 13 layers of integrated security for the PC or laptop. These multiple award-winning Internet security devices represent a true ‘first’ for both parents and gamers – delivering unrivalled online protection while speeding up computer performance and, for families, providing strong parental controls.

The level of security is equivalent to that employed by the FBI. In fact, it’s like having your own security server that’s small enough to fit into your back pocket. All Internet traffic is routed through the devices and ‘cleansed’ before it gets to the host computer – as opposed to traditional software security applications where the fight against Internet borne threats takes place inside the host computer. Since the Yoggie Gatekeeper SOHO and Pro™ use their own hardware to run the security, the host computer performance is boosted as it no longer needs security software installed.

With simple ‘plug and forget’ installation, each time the Yoggie Gatekeeper Pro or SOHO™ connect to the Internet, they check for updates which are installed without any user action. The Yoggie Gatekeepers™ offers firewall, intrusion detection, intrusion prevention, Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Anti-Spam, Anti-Phishing and parental control, as well as three unique Yoggie™ patented applications to guard users and repel viruses, spyware, malware and hackers. They even include technology to protect against new security threats not yet known to standard anti-virus software.

Yoggie’s solution is the world’s first Personal Security Server: a credit card size Linux-based 520 Mbps computer with 13 built-in security applications and 128 MB memory.

- The Yoggie Gatekeeper SOHO™

Plugging straight into the network router – the gadget that connects the family’s computers to the Internet - Yoggie’s Gatekeeper SOHO™ - allows parental control from outside a child’s computer and filters unwanted content and messages.

Access to sites offering inappropriate content can be prevented. E-mails ‘phishing’ for information such as passwords which your youngsters may be tempted to answer are blocked. As are e-mails, which, if opened, can unleash software sent to spy on your personal information such as banking and credit card details. What’s more, if one of the children removes the Yoggie Gatekeeper SOHO™, inadvertently, or in order to access potential inappropriate content, the computer will simply not connect to the Internet.

Protecting up to five computers in one household couldn’t be simpler. Users require no technological background as the unit is plugged in between the internet connection and router/switch. The Yoggie Gatekeeper SOHO™ offers a revolutionary approach that significantly improves security and the 13 applications include firewall, intrusion detection, intrusion prevention, Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Anti-Spam, Anti-Phishing and parental control, as well as three unique Yoggie™ patented applications.

The Yoggie Gatekeeper Pro™ offers Internet security at its best As the popularity of online gaming has increased, so has the threat of keylogging, account hacking, viruses and other security threats. While there are many security software suites on the market, most of them cannot keep up with today’s threats and running large suites drains performance just when games are placing increasing demands on available memory and processor power.

For the first time ever, gamers can ‘connect and forget’ a USB miniature personal security server that seamlessly provides laptop and desktop security. By offloading 13 security applications, the Yoggie Gatekeeper Pro™ also boosts performance.

- Pricing and availability

The Yoggie Gatekeeper Pro™ retails at $220 which includes licensing for all 13 security applications for one full year.

The Yoggie Gatekeeper SOHO retails at $249, and comes with one full-year licensing for protecting up to five computers.
