Linux-based open firewall products from Yoggie

Yoggie Security Systems : 12 November, 2008  (New Product)
Hardware firewalls using Yoggie's groundbreaking technology now available to the developer community
Yoggie Security Systems has launched its new Open Firewall Pico and Open Firewall SOHO, the first open hardware firewalls based on its award winning Gatekeeper technology.

The Open Firewall products are extremely powerful Linux-based miniature computers with 520 MHz ARM CPU, 128 RAM and 128 Flash memory. These unique products will enable developers, security professionals and hobbyists to experiment with Yoggie's own open source hardware firewall for the first time. Yoggie's award-winning product line was designed and built on a Linux platform. Yoggie will release the source code to its powerful firewall products in a full developer SDK, as well as source code to most of the applications on its platform.

The Open Firewall Pico takes on the form factor of the publicly-acclaimed Gatekeeper Pico - which is the size of a standard USB key - and will allow anyone to test their own settings on one of the smallest, most powerful Linux machines on the market. For the first time the open source and hobbyist coder community will be able to try out their own scripts and experiment in real time on their own pocket version of a hardware firewall. The Open Firewall SOHO has two Ethernet ports and no driver is necessary as it can protect any type of OS and computer.

Shlomo Touboul, Founder and CEO of Yoggie Security Systems said: 'We are very excited to share with the development community this powerful platform that includes a fully functioning Firewall, protecting out of the box Windows, Mac and Linux PCs. Limited only by their imagination, developers can add incredible extensions and applications to produce enhanced solutions for PC security, management, backup and content sharing.'

Yoggie has also launched a new Yoggie developer community site to provide a forum for developers to support each other and enable new software, concepts and scripts to be exchanged and discussed. All are welcome to join, from the individual software enthusiast, to members of the hardware engineering community and students.

Developers will be able to re-configure their hardware or modify the software installed with CLI (Command line interface) using standard SSH protocol. This means applications like PuTTY, or file-manager type applications such as WinSCP are supported.

The new products, Open Firewall Pico and Open Firewall SOHO, will be available at special introductory prices:.

Open Firewall Pico MSRP $69 --> Special 3 month introductory offer $49.

Open Firewall SOHO MSRP $99 --> Special 3 month introductory offer $79.

For this price, users will receive a full product suite consisting of a hardware firewall, developer SDK and full SSH access, as well as membership of the online Yoggie developer community.
