Yoggie Gatekeeper Pico Pro™ named as overall winner in “Innovationspreis – IT Security category”

The Yoggie Gatekeeper Pico Pro™ Personal Security Mini-Computer achieves major recognition with top award at the world’s largest trade fair for digital solutions - CeBIT

(PresseBox) (Hannover, ) Yoggie Security Systems™ today announced that its revolutionary Internet Security device has been awarded the "Innovationspreis – IT Security". This is the top IT-Security award in the highly respected Initiative Mittelstand Innovation Awards, which are now in their fifth year. The Gatekeeper Pico Pro ™ is a USB key-sized Personal Security Mini-Computer with 13 security applications. It connects to any PC or laptop - blocking Internet threats outside the host computer and boosting PC and laptop performance by offloading security software.

Yoggie Security Systems beat over 90 companies in the IT security category and the Initiative Mittelstand Innovation Awards attracted a total of 1600 entrants.

For Yoggie Security Systems this award is the latest in a string of prestigious industry awards and accolades that have followed the launch of its range of personal security computers onto the market. The list includes CES Best of Innovations – Computer Accessories, PC Magazine Technical Excellence, Business Week/IDSA Silver Idea Award, Red Herring Global 100 Finalist, RSA Innovation Award, Network World ‘Top Ten Security Companies to Watch’ and a host of product recommendations from leading computing, consumer and business publications.

The Gatekeeper Pico Pro is a sleek, silver USB-key, but is in fact a full-blown computer with its own processor, memory and unique operating system. It combines best-of-breed security software with proprietary patent-pending developments to provide the most comprehensive all-in-one security technology available to corporate users today. There is also a consumer version, the Gatekeeper Pico, which offers 12 security applications including Parental Content Control.

The Gatekeeper Pico Pro delivers plug and forget functionality. Users do not have to worry about updates as it automatically checks for them each time it connects to the Internet, and manages the entire process transparently. The device does not require complex installation, configuration or ongoing management (although advanced users can alter the configuration should they wish to).

The Gatekeeper Pico devices provide Pentagon-level security for both business and consumer PC or laptop users, who no longer need to run software-based security suites on their computers. In addition to improving security this means increased performance for their computer.

Shlomo Touboul, Founder and CEO of Yoggie Security Systems said, "We are thrilled by this fantastic recognition from the world’s most important digital technology show. It underscores the fact that we have developed the most innovative approach to online security available today.”
