At first I found myself to be very impatient with the Yoggie Gatekeeper. I goofed on the installation and was locked out. I couldn't grind my article out by the deadline, blah, blah, blah. But I found myself gossiping about the Yoggie Gatekeeper. I've showed it to clients of mine headed to Asia for negotiations. They worry about their Windows laptops being compromised when using wireless, in their hotel rooms, and when they receive email. The Yoggie Gatekeeper Pro package is perfect for providing peace of mind.
The Yoggie Gatekeeper Pro is a great idea. It is not perfect; no security solution is. But it is very useful to have a compact, robust, Linux-based solution that you can duct-tape to your laptop whether it is a Mac, Ubuntu, Windows, or other Linux-based solution. Yoggie works without having to install software or touch registries. All in all, I feel about as safe using the Yoggie Gatekeeper Pro as a firewall as I feel with my Clarkconnect Enterprise 4.1. There is a lot of value compressed into one little USB-key sized product.
Yoggie Gatekeeper Pro is a great first product. It seems to have some flexibility (flashability) built in. Yoggie (the company) has done a lot to try to make itself intelligible. However, I think that most users will need to experience Yoggie to understand its benefits for themselves, since a checklist of features does not ensure flawless performance. Stay tuned for future developments.
