The miniature dedicated security computer running INSIDE your computer now available to provide ultimate laptop protection and improve laptop performance
LONDON, 14 July 2008 – Yoggie Security Systems™ today announced that the Gatekeeper Card™ Pro, a revolutionary ExpressCard compatible format internet security device that places 13 best-of-breed security applications inside your laptop is now available for purchase www.yoggie.com or via its retail partners.
The Gatekeeper Card Pro is inserted directly into a laptop’s ExpressCard slot, allowing consumers and business users to benefit from unrivalled and transparent security wherever they connect.
The Gatekeeper Card Pro is a full-blown computer with its own processor, memory and hardened operating system. This latest innovation from Yoggie marks the first time that an entire computer has been designed for installation inside another computer – essentially a computer within a computer – for the purpose of providing the most advanced security protection on the market.
With new and improved 4X hardware architecture, the Gatekeeper Card Pro offers four times the performance of existing Yoggie devices. Included among the improvements are:
• CPU changed from Intel PXA to Freescale i.MX31
• RAM changed from SDRAM to DDR
The general availability is just in time for the summer season when many holiday makers will be taking their laptops with them. Internet hotspots, in hotels, cafes or airports, are notorious for being insecure. Connecting to the same network shared by multiple users reveals the identity of your computer, exposing it to numerous attacks including spam, phishing, malware, Trojans and worms. Yoggie’s range of personal security computers provide powerful plug and play protection for laptop users.
The Yoggie Gatekeeper portable security devices provide 12-13 layers of security software including anti-spam, anti-virus and anti-phishing. All internet traffic is routed through the devices which provide a physical barrier between the laptop and the Internet to ensure that threats never reach the laptop itself. By removing the need to install software, the devices also improve laptop performance.
The Gatekeeper products are in fact a full-blown computer with their own processor, memory and unique operating system. They combine best-of-breed security software with proprietary technologies to provide the most comprehensive all-in-one internet security solution available to consumers today.
Gatekeeper Pico™ is a USB stick device. MSRP: £75, available immediately. The Gatekeeper Pico, a sleek, silver USB-key, is in fact a full-blown computer with its own processor, memory and unique operating system.

In addition to the Gatekeeper range, Yoggie offers the Firestick Pico™, for users seeking hardware firewall-only protection.
