Yoggie Gatekeeper Pro

Linux-based security in your pocket

The Intertubes are ripe with evil. You can smell it. Crouching there, in the dark recesses of zeroes and ones, waiting for a fresh unpatched computer to poke its nubile head out into the word. Bang! Another poor netizen gets 'sploited, turning it into a zombie, or worse - his data is entirely compromised, and somebody's buying a new TV with your credit card… bad... To protect yourself, you download the latest updates, install anti-virus software and even have software firewalls installed. Even then, software is, by design, soft and once an exploit is found, it can be modified and worked around, and you're vulnerable again. It's almost impossible to keep up.

Your best protection is a hardware firewall, but it's impractical to carry around a router with your laptop. Those bulky things usually require a wall outlet and extra cabling - what a pain in the patootie that can be! But software firewalls, while portable, lack the hardened security you need.

Yoggie is a tiny hardware firewall that fits in your hand, requires no wall outlet, and provides enterprise-level firewall protection for your computer. It has two operating modes - one draws power from the built-in USB cable, connects to your ethernet port, and the ethernet wall socket, and the second just uses the USB port and performs packet-packet filtering for your computer's own WiFi adapter through the use of a virtual bridge. If you don't know what that means, don't worry - it's all seamless and transparent!
