Beth Halevy, Israel (PRWEB) July 20, 2009
Yoggie Security Systems™ today announced that the Yoggie Management Server™ (YMS) - an appliance used by companies to manage their fleets of Yoggie Gatekeeper Internet security devices - can now be downloaded as a VMware-based virtual appliance from http://www.yoggie.com . The hardware-based version of the management tool will no longer be available.
The YMS enables enterprises to enforce security policies and monitor cyber threats by managing the Yoggie Gatekeeper Internet security devices used by employees. The Gatekeeper Pico™ and Gatekeeper Card™ are miniaturized computers in both USB dongle and ExpressCard form that plug into any laptop, PC or Mac host computer and run a suite of 14 security applications.
With the move to VMware, Yoggie enterprise customers will enjoy significant benefits including vastly increased levels of scalability as well as easier and faster deployment, maintenance, load balancing and backup/restore functionality. Being able to use existing hardware, rather than purchasing dedicated hardware, customers will also save on capital costs.
Shlomo Touboul, founder and CEO of Yoggie Security Systems, said, "The mobility trend within the modern-day workforce continues to move forwards and with it, the security challenge for corporate IT managers is still increasing. Combined with Yoggie Gatekeeper devices, the YMS puts control firmly back in the hands of the IT department at the same time that it delivers a rock solid first line of defense. By moving the YMS to a VMware-based virtual appliance, we are making it easier than ever for companies to deploy the security management tools they need to protect corporate assets."
With centralized management, policy enforcement, automatic updates to mobile Gatekeeper users and real-time web-based monitoring of users, the YMS is a custom-built tool for enterprises that are serious about a thorough and consistent approach to protecting their data. It gives companies real-time oversight and the means to ensure staff adhere to correct policies while at the same time simplifying the aspect of security for employees.
A trial version will be available for download shortly from http://www.yoggie.com and anyone interested in further information on the YMS VMware virtual appliance can visit http://www.yoggie.com/management_server.shtml .
