The world’s first Hybrid Security Computer honored by the world’s leading Consumer Electronics Show

18th November 2008, New York. Yoggie Security Systems™ today announced that its revolutionary Yoggie HyPC™ has been awarded "Innovations Honoree 2009 – Computer Peripherals" by the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The Yoggie HyPC™ is a miniature ‘hybrid’ computer in the form of an ExpressCard that slides into your laptop to provide the most secure web browsing available to consumers today. The device uses its own processor, memory and hardened operating system to run an ultra-secure web browser and by doing so, completely isolates your laptop from the dangers of surfing the Web.

The HyPC, which will be officially launched at CES 2009 in Las Vegas, provides security for Web surfing that software suites cannot match. By running the web browser on its own OS, the HyPC gives users the best Virus immune system possible (hardened and secured OS, doesn't support Windows APIs, IPC, etc.). In other words, the Web browser is running in a completely separate ‘sand box’; implemented as an independent machine and completely separated from the laptop’s system and files.

The HyPC is based on the concept of ‘Hybridization’ or ‘computer-in-computer’. Essentially it takes the ‘Virtualization’ approach (using software to simulate hardware) one step further. The device is the latest innovation from Yoggie Security Systems, the company behind the multiple award winning Gatekeeper Pico – a miniaturized computer in both USB stick and ExpressCard form that plugs into any laptop, PC or Mac and runs a suite of 12 security applications including several patented programs.

With a host of prominent awards under its belt for the Gatekeeper Pico personal security computer, including CES Best of Innovations 2008, PC Magazine Technical Excellence, Business Week/IDSA Silver Idea Award, RSA Innovation Award, Network World ‘Top Ten Security Companies to Watch’ and a host of magazine product recommendations, Yoggie Security Systems is an industry leader in integrated security technology for consumers.
Shlomo Touboul, Founder and CEO of Yoggie Security Systems said, "This is the second year in a row that our technology has received an award from CES and we are thrilled that the judges of the world’s most important consumer technology show continue to recognize the innovation in our products and our approach to online consumer security.”
