Wick Hill to deliver Yoggie USB based security

Wick Hill : 18 June, 2007  (Company News)
Portable security system from Yoggie which uses USB memory as the delivery mechanism to be distributed by Wick Hill.
Wick Hill has been appointed distributor for Yoggie Security Systems, makers of the revolutionary new Yoggie Pico Pro, a multi-functional security system on a USB stick. As well
as selling through existing channel partners, the distributor will be
looking for more resellers to take this groundbreaking new solution into
the UK business market.

The Yoggie Pico Pro really is a breakthrough in security appliances
for laptops and PCs. For the first time corporate users can benefit from
13 security applications on a miniature computer contained in a USB
stick which simply slips into a PC or laptop's USB port. Uniquely, the
Yoggie, Pico Pro which is actually a full and robust Linux based
computer, offloads all security applications onto the USB stick,
allowing Internet traffic to be screened before it executes on the
laptop or PC; and only once Internet traffic (including, for example,
all email content and any respective attachments) has been cleansed, is
it allowed to enter the computer.

No bigger than your thumb, the new Yoggie Pico Pro manages the 13
security applications, including updates. It is also the most powerful
computer to be placed into a USB stick and is an Intel Pentium level 520
MHz platform. Through the combination of offloading security onto a
piece of dedicated hardware and its patent pending technologies the
Yoggie Pico Pro is not exposed to PC-related vulnerabilities as its
software-only counterparts are.

The Yoggie Pico Pro allows IT managers to extend control to their
travelling workforces by enforcing policies using the Yoggie Management
Server, which monitors and manages the fleet of travelling Yoggie
Pico Pro devices. Installed in the IT server room, it provides
security policy updates, signatures, and rule-base updates, while
obtaining local logs and events for complete visibility. Finally, IT
Security managers can protect their organisations' mobile and remote
platforms in a non-intrusive, yet consistent manner.

The Yoggie Pico Pro also offers:.

1 A hassle free hardware-based security solution - does not
require complicated installation and configuration - just plug into the
USB port where it immediately begins cleaning all of the Internet
traffic running to and from the computer.

2 The elimination of the conflict between the user's desire for
freedom and the IT manager's concern for security.

3 Increases laptop/PC performance by offloading 13 security
applications onto one piece of dedicated hardware.

4 No need to install heavy software products that pop up with
confusing messages.

5 Internet updates on an hourly basis, without disturbing the user
or hampering laptop or PC resources.

6 Prevents unprotected or unauthorized Internet access. By
removing the Yoggie Pico ProTM from the computer all network connections
are stopped.

7 Protection from Web and Mail threats via one simple to use

Ian Kilpatrick, chairman of Wick Hill Group, commented: 'This is a very
exciting product which fills a gap in the market with the growing
concern about security on laptops out of the office. Resellers can give
their customers the same level of security on their travelling laptops
that they have on their office networks, by simply using the Yoggie USB
stick. It provides a standard of security that was previously only
available to organisations like banks and government intelligence
services. We anticipate a huge demand and it's a great opportunity for
our channel partners.'

Shlomo Touboul, Founder and CEO of Yoggie Security Systems, said: 'We
are proud to be working with Wick Hill and believe that with their
expertise and successful relationships with multiple resellers, we will
be able to extend our reach to corporate users quickly and effectively.'
