Yoggie Gatekeeper: dedicated anti-malware for laptops

Yoggie Gatekeeper

Security for workers with laptops is important, but is often hard to manage and a serious drain on system performance as programs constantly monitor even the slightest changes in the system. A new startup company named Yoggie Security Systems has developed a much simpler alternative named the Gatekeeper. Instead of loading software on the user's system or storing it on a U3 flash drive, the Gatekeeper is a self-contained security computer. The Linux-based device handles anti-spyware, anti-virus, firewall, and VPN functions itself without asking the user to install any programs that might consume CPU power. It automatically adapts its security based on incoming threats, taking some of the burden away from IT administrators, and can even manage traffic for as many as 5 systems by itself. Yoggie has targeted the initial device at Windows XP users and hopes to ship in November.
