Secure e-mail access add-on for Lenovo computers

Yoggie Security Systems : 26 August, 2009  (Company News)
In a deal between Yoggie and Lenovo, laptops from Lenovo will make use of Protect 2.0 card for secure e-mail
Yoggie Security Systems has announced a business agreement with Lenovo, one of the world's largest personal computer manufacturers, to develop a unique laptop accessory that provides constant and secure email access, even if the laptop is switched off. The new device combines Lenovo ConstantConnect and Protect 2.0 to allow users to send and receive emails immediately after turning on their laptop. Moreover, they can do so with the additional assurance of unrivalled Internet security.

The new 34 mm ExpressCard-compatible card works by providing an instant and secure email exchange, saving the time normally required for connecting to networks (wired or wireless), loading a VPN and connecting to the Corporate Network. It also acts as an independent miniature computer and is active even when the laptop is in hibernate mode or switched off.

The device uses a built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to synchronize the host laptop with a RIM's BlackBerry device and downloads new emails from Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft Outlook, POP3 and Gmail accounts to its 500MB of Flash-based storage. The emails are then automatically available to the user the moment that the laptop is switched on. For users who like to queue up their emails, the device can even send emails after the user has switched off or hibernated his or her laptop.

As well as delivering instant email, the device safeguards users by using Constant Protect, an onboard custom-engineered security technology designed by Yoggie, which ensures all email content is safe and provides a full-fledged Internet security suite protection for the laptop.

Based on the multiple award-winning Yoggie Gatekeeperâ„¢ security device, the new Lenovo ConstantConnect and Protect 2.0 boasts its own processor, RAM and hardened OS to run a full suite of fourteen security programs in order to help protect the host laptop from all forms of cyber crime. The suite includes a firewall, Intrusion Detection, Intrusion Prevention, Anti Virus, Anti Spyware, Anti Spam, Anti Phishing and Parental Control, as well as three unique Yoggieâ„¢ patented applications. In addition, the device can even 'cloak' the user's surfing activity from any and all types of monitoring.

'As business customers increasingly rely on their ThinkPad laptops and their Blackberry smartphones to work on the road, tools like Lenovo's ConstantConnect and Protect 2.0 enable them to be even more productive anywhere they go,' said Rich Cheston, executive director and distinguished engineer, ThinkVantage Technologies, Lenovo. 'Yoggie's Gatekeeper security suite extends these benefits further to keep users protected against threats to data security.'

'Lenovo has a tremendous track record of innovation and, as their recent Lenovo ConstantConnect product shows, they understand how the expectations and demands of computer users are continuing to evolve.' Commented Shlomo Touboul, founder and CEO of Yoggie Security Systems. 'We are excited about this opportunity to work with such a forward-thinking company and, by combining our skills and experience, provide laptop users with improved communications technology.'
