Who are Yoggie? I’ve certainly never heard of them before, so let’s see what they have to say about themselves:
Yoggie Security Systems™ (www.yoggie.com) established in 2005 by Shlomo Touboul – the inventor of Behavior Based Blocking Technology – is the developer of the world’s first hardware-based computer security solution. Yoggie’s range of USB key-sized security mini-computers connects to any PC or laptop at home, in the office and on the road – blocking Internet threats outside the host computer and boosting computer performance by off-loading installed security software. Yoggie’s products combine best of breed security software with propriety patent-pending developments to provide the most comprehensive all-in-one security technology available to both consumers and corporate users.
Yoggie has been recognized by numerous prestigious industry organizations for its unique and innovative security technology. The company continues to expand rapidly though it’s growing worldwide network of first class distributors, resellers and its own e-store.
So, they are a company dedicated to making roaming laptops secure, until recently their products have been aimed solely at corporations, but are now starting

The Internet Revolution is Here: Plug-In to Security Hardware
The Firestick Pico™ is a portable USB mini-computer that replaces your software Firewall and protects your computer from malicious attacks before they can reach your PC. The Firestick Pico places a physical barrier between PCs and the Internet to ensure that threats never reach users’ computers. Unlike software firewalls, the Firestick Pico is based on a dedicated hardware platform specifically designed to protect PCs from the most devastating menaces including denial of service, buffer overflow and the broadest range of malicious attacks.
It sounds quite an exciting prospect, a whole computer on a USB stick, so let’s check out what it looks like…
