Yoggie Pico offloads security to USB stick

Yoggie Pico security stick

Yoggie has developed a unique approach to PC security. The Pico is a USB stick, and contains 13 different security applications, including anti-virus, anti-spyware and intrusion prevention programs; what distinguishes it from the likes of the Virus Chaser is that it is a fully-functional computer, running a 520MHz Intel processor and a copy of Linux. Once plugged into a PC, the Pico starts working automatically, monitoring all Internet traffic.

Removing the Pico disables network connections, and once configured, it can enforce parental controls. Two versions of the Pico are planned for retail release in September: the standard Personal will cost $179, with a $30 license starting in the second year. The Pro meanwhile adds a VPN client, and will cost $199 with a $40 license.
