Gatekeeper USB security for Mac devices

Yoggie Security Systems : 17 October, 2008  (New Product)
Mac users can now also benefit from the dedicated USB hardware from Yoggie which operates 12 internet security applications on one USB stick
Yoggie Security Systems has launched the world's first miniature hardware internet security devices for MacBooks and Mac desktop computers. The new Gatekeeper Pico for Mac and Gatekeeper Card Pro for Mac, provide 12 internet security applications on a dedicated hardware that offloads security, improves productivity and protects users wherever they connect.

With predictions of over 10 million Apple Macintosh computers sold by the end of 2008, Macs are rapidly becoming attractive targets to attackers. Additionally, the typical Mac user is more mobile than a Windows user and as such has a higher risk of exposure to internet borne threats.

The Gatekeeper Pico for Mac is a USB key-size Linux-based security mini-computer, with 12 built-in security applications. The device boots up automatically with the Mac and begins protecting the Mac host immediately. A specially created low-level driver hijacks all network connections, routing Internet traffic through the device before it reaches the host computer, ensuring that any attacks hit the Gatekeeper Pico for Mac and not the host computer.

The Gatekeeper Card Pro for Mac is inserted directly into the MacBook's ExpressCard slot and provides 12 security applications. Like the Gatekeeper Pico for Mac, it is a full-blown mini-computer with its own processor, memory and hardened operating system. The Gatekeeper Card Pro for Mac 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.



Shlomo Touboul, Founder and CEO of Yoggie Security Systems: 'As a nomad Mac user myself, who is heavily dependent on his computer and is always online, I want maximum security and mobility without installing heavy duty software on my MacBook Pro. With our new products, we believe that we are solving a growing problem; and are very pleased and excited to make the Gatekeeper available to the Mac user community at the same price as the Windows
version.'

The Yoggie Gatekeeper Pico and Gatekeeper Card Pro for Mac are based on Yoggie Security Systems award winning Gatekeeper technology, and will run on all devices running Mac OS X v10.5.4 (Leopard) and above.



The manufacturer's suggested retail price for the Yoggie Gatekeeper Pico for Mac is $149 and the Gatekeeper Card Pro for Mac is $199; both are available for pre-order today and will be shipped and available for sale from 1 December 2008 online and soon at leading etailers and retailers. Pre-ordered units are subject to a 20% discount. The prices are the same as Yoggie's equivalent PC products.
